The much-anticipated, once-delayed celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Aspen Skiing Co. is here. This two-night, four-performance event – a collaboration between Skico and Pop-Up Magazine will feature mixed-media stories about the people, places, and ski town passion of the past 75 years from the 24 Hours of Aspen Ski Race to bootpacking and yodeling. Tickets are $46 for the general public, $19.46 for Skico employees.



Old-school Aspenite and comedy great Robert Dubac is back with a new one-man show, which he will perform at the Arts Campus at Willits on Saturday, March 12. In his latest whip-smart satire, “Stand-Up Jesus,” Dubac skewers organized religion and imagines Christ coming back as a comedian. Tickets are $22-$35.



It wouldn’t be a true ski season in Aspen without a set or two from Colorado’s own The Motet at Belly Up. The legendary jam and fusion band, which played the celebratory re-opening show at the club back in June after a 15-month pandemic shutdown, returns on Wednesday, March 16. Tickets are $39-$75.
