Sharing Lodging or Carpools - 2016 Aspen Gathering - Page 2

post #31 of 46

I purchased the 4-day Aspen Classic Pass, so I am committed to going. Traveling alone from the Front Range, my dates are pretty flexible.

For Front Rangers, we could carpool, or if you are coming from out of town, I could pick you up from DIA.

One of the perks of the Aspen Classic Pass is that they are offering $29 lift tickets for pass holders through December 18, 2015, so I plan to go up for a couple of days to ski in December and do a little scouting around.

If anyone is interested in sharing accommodation, please let me know.

I would be interested in sharing a condo: Feb. 2nd - Feb. 6th. (4 nights).

Well, looks like I procrastinated too long and the St. Moritz hostel rooms are booked up.  

 

I am looking for a place to sleep Feb. 6,7,8 &9.  Condo, hotel room, closet...

 

I am mostly clean and mostly quiet.

Blue Streak is staying with me and my son in the condo I've rented.  MattL told me privately he has a spot.

Any other updates?

Here is a private room Airbnb on the bus route for $100/night.  https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7633177?checkin=02%2F06%2F2016&checkout=02%2F10%2F2016&s=Hm9SbnYG

 

Snowmass Inn is showing $120 with AAA or AARP (grumble, I qualify and IIRC so do you).  I posted a discount awhile ago in another thread, but it has probably expired.  Probably worth finding it and trying.

 

Remember to check all three of VRBO, Airbnb, and Flipkey if you want to go that route.

 

Maybe PM some of the people posting above and see if anyone wants another body, or is still looking.  Unfortunately there was not a lot of followup here as plans developed.

That must have been someone else. I couldn't find any people to share a condo, everybody I knew was already committed. I hooked up with a room mate and we are doing airbnb, staying with a local couple in town.

I would try Airbnb. My room mate and I are staying right in town with a cool young couple for $50 each per night.

I'm not 100% committed to attending the Gathering as I can cancel my Southwest flight until the beginning of Feb. and get a credit, but if I do attend, I should have room to give at least one person a ride from Aspen to DEN on Monday 2/8.

 

BUT, if I've already used my 3 free MCP days at Aspen, I would prefer to leave early on Monday and ski somewhere on the way to airport. Breckenridge would be my top choice as I only have one day lifetime there (and also at Keystone), but any of the Vail resorts are possible and I could provide you a discount ticket from my pass. If two-fers or other very reasonable tickets are available, Copper Mountain is also possible, but I have 5 free days at the Vail resorts in CO and UT to try to use.

 

Would be willing to do it for a place to stay Super Bowl night in Aspen (couch would be OK) or gas or meal(s). Cost would be a lot less expensive than shuttle. My flight leaves Den at 9:55 PM so skiing Aspen also works, but would want to quit a little early, especially if there is any weather predicted.

 

PM me if interested.

 

P.S. Rental car rates have finally dropped. I had booked one before Christmas for $214 and booked another today for $135 for the 7 days I need. SUVs would be a lot more, but sometimes that is all they have.

Hi - I can offer a twin bed in a shared room with a shared bath in an Aspen condo.  Feb 2 through Feb 9.  Great location - 4 blocks to the Gondola.  Seems to be a pretty typical ski condo other than that.  

 

The master suite is occupied and private.  

 

PM for additional details and consideration.  This is not a party house or a flop pad.  Payment via PayPal on Venmo in advance.  If you are cool, mature, and need a bed for the Gathering this is a good opportunity.

 

-Matt

Ride needed DEN to Snowmass 2/2 afternoon. I'm arriving DEN 2/2 12:05p on Southwest Air from LAX. If anyone has room in car for an additional passenger and bags, please PM me. Will pay for all gas and dinner.

Will work better if we at least know mutual people on this forum smile.gif THANKS!!!

I'm working out details but there's a good chance I may be able to pull off my first Gathering in a few years.  Anybody coming from Denver either 2/3 or 2/4 and leaving 2/8 or 2/9 that has room and would like to split car rental costs?

All said, I'm willing to take on the admin and coordination for the event.  I've heard from a few board members who are interested.  Time to start making commitments.  Here's what I'm thinking:

 

The condo is available as early as 2/1, but I'm pricing 2/3 - 3/8 (5 nights)

 

Total Price:  

$1947.75 + 87.64 cancellation insurance = $2035.39

 

Total Price 2035.39 Share Total Price per night
  King BR / Bath 40%  $    814.16  $ 162.83
  Twin / Shared Bath 30%  $    610.62  $ 122.12
  Twin / Shared Bath 30%  $    610.62  $ 122.12
  Pull Out Sofa ? ? ?
       $ 2,035.39  

 

I am leaving the pull out sofa open / crash on the floor option open.  If someone is interested in this option, I'm thinking $50/night with the 1st 4 nights ($100 each) going to the twin beds and $50 going to the King BR or for general condo libations.  

 

Parking will be a bit of a challenge.  Once settled, I'm not sure there's a huge need for a vehicle, so perhaps we can shuttle 2 or 3 of the vehicles off site.

 

Interested parties, hit me up.  For integrity purposes, I'm willing to share LinkedIn and AirBnB profiles.  

Think Snow!

Hey Fellow Epic Skiers !

 

I'm flying from SFO to DEN on Fri 02/05/2016 so I can join the fun for the week-end. 

I'm looking for lodging options for 2 nights in the Aspen/Snowmass area. checking in on Fri 02/05, checking out  on Sun 02/07. 

 

If you have an extra room or bed to rent out that week-end then I'd be happy to pay you for it. Any other lodging related advice is welcome. Actually, do you know of any group discounts we might have in the nearby hotels for this event ?

 

Cheers,

Riad.

Welcome to EpicSki, Riad.  I moved your thread/post into the ongoing thread for folks looking for lodging or rides for the Aspen Gathering.  EpicSki Groups are . . . a little odd in how they work.  Threads that are outside the Group tend to work better.

 

There is no group lodging set up for this Gathering.  In general, usually people set up their own travel arrangements.

 

Where do you usually ski?  Have you found the Roll Call thread yet?

Thank you, Marc !

I have added myself into that page, wooo hoo, it's going to be fun I'm sure.

 

Riad.
