The Ice Age Discovery Center

There’s more to Snowmass than, well, snow

In October 2010, a bulldozer working near Snowmass uncovered the tusk of a female mammoth. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science quickly stepped in, and over the course of several months, oversaw its largest-ever fossil excavation. The result? Discovering approximately 36,000 bones from 42 different Ice Age animals, including sloths, camels, and mastodons – which were distant relatives of mammoths.

At the Ice Age Discovery Center in Snowmass Village Mall, all of these incredible fossils are meticulously displayed, alongside eye-catching displays, educational panels, and engaging programing. The center is fun and informative for children and grown up alike. Even better? Admission is completely free.
