Just over two years ago mammoth fossils were discovered in Snowmass Village—now you can see what those massive mammals actually looked like when they roamed the earth. This 13,000-square-foot exhibit presents life-size models of mammoths (weighing in around eight tons!) and other Ice Age animals, as well as a selection of spear points and cave paintings that show how humans interacted with the animals. Don't miss Lyuba, the 42,000-year-old baby mammoth discovered in 2007. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
