February 22 - March 1, 2014 Aspen Ski Trip

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

February 22 – March 1, 2014 => Aspen Colorado Ski Trip => $1790

 

I know, I know – golfing, hiking, biking kayaking, grilling – what to do when the snow is gone. BUT, I haven’t skied now for 10 days and am already getting the itch for next season. Counseling has been ineffective so to satisfy my jonesing I am planning a western to Aspen Colorado – skiing mecca of the stars. Unlimited nightlife plus outstanding skiing for all abilities awaits those who dare.

 

The base trip is $1790 which includes air from Rochester, NY on United to Denver, ground transfers, 7 nights at the Gant (www.gantaspen.com) => 4/two bedroom suite, 6 day lift good at Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass, Buttermilk and a welcome reception at Finnbar's. Single supplement is $595 and subtract $300 if no lift tickets are required, $60 for a 5 day lift ticket and $405 if you will obtain your own air. Note - if you obtain your own air you must match our flight times to use scheduled ground transfers. Trip insurance will be available for approx. $133 but must be obtained by the participant from http://www.csatravelprotection.com/ or http://www.travelguard.com/. I can help with flights from other cities but suggest you book your own on sites such as kayak.com

 

Our flights are:

 

Westbound:   Date Flight  #                Departure       Time       Arrival    Time

             2/22/2013    UA5837           Rochester       6:15       Dulles      7:34

Dude, you have 27 people committed to this trip already?? Must be some sort of record. Or are you running a scam with a nursing home? :-)
For comparison, the Utah gathering just settled on a date after 2 months of polling to herd the cats.

For the last 8 years I've picked a place I want to ski then put together a western trip. Starting this past season and going back my trips have been to Whistler/Blackcomb, Steamboat, Jackson Hole, Park City including Deer Valley/The Canyons/Snowbird/Snowbasin, Aspen, Whistler/Blackcomb, Panorama/Fernie/Kicking Horse, Baniff - Lake Lousie/Sunshine/Kicking Horse.

 

Many who join me are repeats as I do not take any comps rather split any received with my group. At Steamboat I met and hiked with fellow Bear Finndog.

 

This year IS A RECORD for having the majority agree so quickly on a location AND committing to go . 

 

As of today I have 2 on my waiting list & all I need is 2014 snow !!!!!!!!!!

Maybe you and your magic could get involved with the 2014 Mammoth gathering?
As of now there's not a date other than March or April.

Once all is a bit more settled and details finalized I would be more then happy to share with my distribution lists from present and past trips. 

 

I've added another room to Aspen now having 31 with 3 on my waiting list needing a 4th to expand to 35.
