SNOW Symposium Venue
Nestled on the Colorado plains and only 80 minutes from world-class ski and snowboard resorts, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is a mecca for nationally renowned hospitals (the Children’s Hospital, VA and University of Colorado Health) and experts in health care and education.


Denver Museum of Nature and Science
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is the Rocky Mountain region’s leading resource for informal science education. A variety of exhibitions, programs, and activities help Museum visitors experience the natural wonders of Colorado, Earth, and the universe.
The story of the Denver Museum of Nature &Science begins in 1868, when Edwin Carter moved into a tiny cabin in Breckenridge, Colorado, to pursue his passion: the scientific study of the birds and mammals of the Rocky Mountains. Almost single handedly, Carter assembled one of the most complete collections of Colorado fauna then in existence.
Word of Carter's collection spread and, in 1892, a group of prominent Denver citizens declared their interest in moving his collection to the capital city for all to see.
