Ski Trip Details

Once again we are organizing the airport industry ski trip for 2019 following the ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design & Construction Symposium in Denver.  We’ll be returning to Breckenridge, CO where our airport group has been many years in the past. In 2018 at Breckenridge we hosted 50 participants for our après ski event.

The 2019 conference will be in Denver, CO on Wednesday, February 20 thru Friday February 22 at noon.  Our group ski outing will officially be Saturday February 23, but many make a weekend out of it.  We have discounted lift tickets good for anytime between Wednesday and Monday, February 20-25, group transportation and lodging options.  Lodging fills up quickly, so consider booking a place to stay soon, as they are not being protected for any particular cutoff date.

Even if you’re not a winter outdoor recreation person, we’ll be just a few steps from the snow, restaurants, shops and lodging, so all are welcome to join us for après ski food and beverages.

Après Ski
Our group has an area set aside adjacent to the base area of Peak 9 for après ski food and drinks from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday, February 23, 2019.   It’s complimentary to participate, but for planning purposes we need an RSVP from everyone who plans to stop by, so register below using the shopping cart.  We’ll have refreshments and a great view of the skiers and riders as they finish their final runs.

Register here on the site using the shopping cart and we’ll send you details of where the après ski area will be so you can find the group after your last run.

Lodging
Hotel Rooms & Condos Available

There are discounted hotel rooms and condos for our group based on availability until January 30, 2019. Room rates may not be available after 1/31/19 and could sell out well before this date.   The sooner you book a reservation, the greater the likelihood you will get the location and rate for our group as it will sell out given this is peak season.

We are offering a variety of lodging choices (Doubletree, Village Hotel & Condos, Mountain Thunder Lodge, and River Mountain Lodge) with group discounts adjacent to our après ski area at the base area of Peak 9.  Here you’ll find the Quicksilver lift, equipment rentals, and the main location of the town’s restaurants and shops.

Note: Prices listed do not include various fees depending on the property such as $25.00-35.00 daily resort fee or 12.28% taxes and may incur a cancellation fee.  DoubleTree does not charge a resort fee but does charge $35.00 parking if you park a car.  There is no overnight free parking in any public lots that are walkable to the town. Condos generally have a 3-night minimum stay.

Transportation
• To Breckenridge on Friday after the conference

Ride up to the mountains with the group and make some new friends along the way!  Our group will depart via bus from the Sheraton Denver to Breckenridge on Friday February 22, 2019 at 1:30 pm on a motorcoach with only people from the conference. Our departure is after the symposium concludes at 12:00 noon.  We’ll provide refreshments on the bus, and you can sit back and not worry about traffic on 70 West, driving on snow-covered roads, or finding overpriced parking. Meet in the hotel front lobby/driveway with your luggage. You won’t be returning to Denver until it’s time for you to head to the airport for departure.  The bus will unload everyone at the lobby of the Village at Breckenridge, our headquarters location, where your lodging will be ready for to check in.  The bus ride is approximately two hours in length.  Bus is restroom equipped and is supposed to offer power and USB outlets at every seat, and wifi (sometimes equipment swaps happen that are beyond our control and we may be missing power and wifi).  Choose the number of seats you need, and pay here. Cancel for refund by 2/14/19.

• To Denver International Airport DEN or Vail Eagle County Airport EGE

To get back to the airport, we have arranged discounted rates of $61 one-way to Denver Int’l Airport with Colorado / Epic Mountain Express.   For the discounted rate, you must book online via this link.  When you book online, choose one way transportation to the airport you need (Denver, Eagle County/Vail, or Aspen), enter your pickup location and your departure flight date and time. It will suggest a departure time from Breck to get to you to the airport in time for your flight.  This allows you to decide how long you want to stay in the mountains and not have to bother with a rental car, parking fees, gas, winter driving, etc. CME is a shared ride service similar to Super Shuttle, and is owned by Vail Resorts.  You can arrange for CME to pick you up at whatever location in Breck you choose, so it’s easy to ride up with the group no matter where you are staying.  Be aware of the earliest pickup time available the morning you plan to leave when booking your flight to leave Colorado.

You can also call CME at 1-970-754-7433 (SKI-RIDE), but the discount only works when booking online.  Or you can reserve your CME ride with Vail Resorts group reservations when you make your lodging reservation, but they don’t have access to the group discount either.

Lift Tickets - Available till 2/13/19
Lift tickets are good ANY DAY Feb 21-25 and distributed in Denver, so if you’re skiing on your own, you can still get the discount.

Deadline for advance purchase of lift tickets is 2/13/19.

Enjoy a day skiing or boarding at Breckenridge with discounted lift tickets.  Tickets are valid on February 21-25, 2019.  Choose the days and tickets you need and pay with the shopping cart here.  Rates are $151 per day for adult and $98 per day for child, cheaper than tickets available in advance online.  There is a better discount if skiing 3 days, but 3-day tickets cannot be shared; they must be used on any 3 different days during Feb 21-25.

Equipment Rentals
Our group has equipment rates discounted 25% from Breck Sports booking via rentskis.com.   The discount is valid February 20-25, 2019 if booked 14 days in advance.

There are two convenient locations where you can pick up your equipment, depending on whether you’re staying at the DoubleTree or at the Village hotel/condo area in the Peak 9 base area.  Regardless of pickup location, you can drop off right next to our après ski area for Saturday. Breck Sports (via rentskis.com) will record your ski and snowboard preferences, height and weight, ski ability, and your equipment will be waiting for you as soon as you arrive. You can pick up as early as 3:00 pm the day before your rental, or pick up the morning you ski. You can store equipment overnight with them free.
