The OP's much more likely get that extra day of skiing in Aspen, than Summit Co.  

No Denver traffic, no rental return, no rental car shuttle bus, no airport train.

And those are all solid reasons why Aspen is a good destination (though I guess many might dispute whether Buttermilk really constitutes a resort for non-beginners/park rats).  I just think it's a bit much to piss all over the OP's idea just because he hadn't considered Aspen.  Aspen's good, no doubt that's why it was voted for the gathering, but the "Vail is flat, Breckenridge is insanely overcrowded" meme is a bit overplayed.  They are popular for reasons above and beyond the very keen season pass pricing after all.

  I just wanted to make him aware that the Gathering is taking place at the same time.

 

They call it Boardermilk for a reason and it's awesome!

I would actually encourage the attendees to try Buttermilk!  Especially if they get a high wind day.

 

 

Sorry if I pissed in anyone's Cheerios.

Fair enough it's a good call.
