Travelers can experience the art and science about Colorado’s cold stuff in DEN's latest exhibit, "Colorado Snow & Ice." Starry nighttime photographs, origami snowflakes, hand-painted original artworks used for ski maps and whimsical interpretations of some of Colorado’s favorite peaks are just a few of the art samplings. Videos from helicopters capturing isolated avalanches, replicas of research snow pits and a handful of scientific gadgets help to educate about the range of studies about snow. Vintage and modern day recreational equipment such as sleds, lift tickets, ice skates and skis just add to the fun. The exhibit also features origami art projects for travelers to enjoy.
