I have some connections with the Comfort Suites in Dillon and have arranged a discount rate for folks attending the Gathering. From April 1 through April 10, $75 a night will get you a room with either two queen beds and a sleeper sofa, or a room with a king bed and a sleeper sofa. This rate is PER ROOM, not per person, so the more folks in the room, the cheaper it will be.
The Comfort Suites is one of the nicer choices in Summit County. It's two minutes off I-70 and perfectly located as a hub to get to all the mountains on the Gathering schedule. A full breakfast is included. The hotel has an indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi, fitness room, free WiFi and free parking. No pets.
Here is the web site so you can see it:
To book a room, just call the main desk (NOT the central reservations number) at 970-513-0300. Tell the desk agent the type of room you would like and the dates you'll want it. Say you are booking under a special $75-a-night rate arranged by James and the listing is under "Epic Ski Gathering" in the computer. You can ask VERY NICELY if any of the rooms with Jacuzzis in the living rooms are available!
The hotel dining room is usually available in the evening if folks want to get together to socialize and plan the next day's activities. There are several decent ski rental/tuning shops in the immediate area, a supermarket, and numerous restaurants ranging from very nice to fast food.
Any questions, just ask here or PM me. I'll probably guide a group at Copper where I instruct and hope to join you at some of the other mountains. Hope this is useful!
All the best,
