  • You can nominate inductees any time during the year, prior to the August 31, 2022 cut-off date.  Submissions can be made by going to the Nomination Page.


    The Aspen Hall of Fame was established in 1986–87 to recognize and honor those individuals who have had a significant and lasting impact on the Aspen/Snowmass communities—economically, physically, spiritually, ethically or intellectually. Nominees must have demonstrated inspirational leadership and have made major contributions to cultural, sports, and/or civic activities.


    The Aspen Hall of Fame honors its new inductees in February of each year, a time when the community comes together to honor those who have made a lasting impact on the Aspen/Snowmass area.

    Nominations are solicited from the community during the previous year. Nominations are accepted no later than the deadline date shown on the Nominate page. The Nomination Form outlines the qualifications for this honor, and the guidelines are carefully followed when considering a nominee for induction.

    Honorees are chosen by members of the Board of Directors in the fall. Following the selection process, the inductees are notified of their selection, and the community at large is informed through local media.

    Members of the Board of Directors serve a four-year term, with the option to renew for a second four years. Because of this relatively lively turnover, many individuals from the Aspen/Snowmass community have served as volunteers on the Aspen Hall of Fame board over the years.

    The Aspen Hall of Fame Banquet is usually held on an evening in February, beginning with a cash bar, then dinner, then a video presentation describing the life and contributions to the community of each new inductee, and presentation of an award.

    Everyone is welcome to the banquet, but seating is limited. For further information and to make a request to be added to the mailing list, please call the contact telephone number at the bottom of the page or, for email, navigate to "Contact" and complete the form to get your questions answered.


    The Aspen Hall of Fame is a nonprofit organization, dependent upon donations for its continued existence. Donations keep the annual banquet affordable for all who wish to attend and support the making of the documentary videos. Videos of the life history of each inductee are prepared and presented at the banquet, becoming a living narrative on the rich history of our area as told through their lives, their families, and colleagues. The videos are available on this website and at the Aspen Historical Society Archives.
