Aspen Sister City's mission is to share ideas and cultures through the international exchange of students & community members from Aspen and Aspen's respective sister cities.
One of the primary projects of the Aspen organization is the exchange of middle school age students from the various sister cities. Many life long friendships have been established and some students have subsequently returned to the host countries for further study and pleasure.
Other cultural sister city exchanges include citizen tour exchanges, ski patrollers and instructors, sports teams, school teachers, and musicians.
