Create Your Own Lift Ticket

Since 2005, the Aspen Art Museum and the Aspen Skiing Company have collaborated to bring contemporary art to audiences in unexpected places. Each year, an artist is commissioned to produce artworks that are used on lift tickets for the skiing and snowboarding season.

Workshops are offered throughout the winter season for kids and families to respond to these designs by creating a personal lift ticket with the help of Aspen Art Museum educators.
