Once again we are organizing the airport industry ski trip for 2018 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.

The 2018 conference will be in Denver, CO on Wednesday, February 28 thru Friday March 2 at noon.  Our group ski outing will officially be Saturday March 3.  We have discounted lift tickets good for any day between Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday, March 1-4, 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.

Our last outing, 2016, we had 30-40 participants for our trip to Park City Mountain Resort.   Even if you’re not an 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.  If you have photos from the ski trip you’d like to share, send them to


Après Ski

Our group has an area set aside adjacent to the base area of Peak 9 for après ski refreshments from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday March 3, 2018.   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.


Lodging: Hotel Rooms & Condos Available

There are discounted hotel rooms and condos for our group based on availability until January 31, 2018.  We are offering space at The Village at Breckenridge, which is a complex of buildings at the base of Peak 9.  The Village at Breck is convenient to our group hospitality area on Saturday and the Quicksilver lift, equipment rentals, restaurants and retail in town.  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 it’s peak season.
To make a reservation, call Group Reservations at (888)-525-1787 and select option 2 for all other properties; provide agent with Group Code BD1GG8, for Grice Group 2018.  Be sure agent is checking for hotel rooms and not condos if that’s your preference, as they seem to offer the most expensive lodging first.  Prices listed do not include $25.00 daily resort fee or 12.28% taxes and may incur a cancellation fee.  Room and condo choices for our group are:

Village at Breckenridge

Standard Hotel Room Two Doubles (DH)  (room has a double sofabed, so guests sleep in 3 beds)
Standard Hotel Room One King (KH) (room has a double sofabed, can sleep guests in 2 beds)
Standard Hotel Room One Double ADA (HH)  (room has a double sofabed, can sleep guests in 2 beds)
One Bedroom Condominium (1P) 3 night min (sleeps 2-4 people, full kitchen & fireplace)

• To Breckenridge

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 March 2, 2018 at 1:30 pm bringing only people from the conference. This is after the symposium concludes at 12 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 equipped with 110v/USB outlets at every seat, along with restroom, wifi, and seatbelts.  Choose the number of seats you need, and pay here. Cancel for refund by

• To Denver International Airport

To get back to the airport, we have arranged discounted rates with Colorado Mountain Express.   For $10 off, book online using  code BD1GG8, or call CME at 1-970-754-7433 (SKI-RIDE) with this code.  You can also 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.  When you book online, choose one way transportation to the airport you need (Denver, Eagle County/Vail, or Aspen), enter your p ickup 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 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.

Enjoy a day skiing or boarding at Breckenridge with discounted lift tickets.  Tickets will be valid on March 1-4, 2018.  We will distribute tickets on the bus to Breckenridge on Friday.  If you are not riding the bus, we’ll get the tickets to you at the conference beginning on Wednesday 3/30/18.  Rates are $135 per day for adult and $89 per day for child.  Choose the days and tickets you need and pay here.  For example, if you need tickets for two adults on one day or one adult for two days, put two adult tickets in the cart, etc.
