Rocky Mountain Getaways travel agency?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

Checking if anyone has ever heard of or used this company? I was surprised to find zero results while searching for them on epicski.

 

I've had some back and forth with one of their agents and so far they seem legit. I'm comparing it to the (hours upon hours of) independent research I'm doing and if they can put a competitive package, why not?

 

They're not BBB-accredited but are listed with an A+ rating. According to the page they're based on Breckenridge and been in business since 2004.

As far as RMG is concerned. I have friends who have used them before. They are legit as far as i have heard from them. I just found that i could find better and cheaper deals by setting it all up myself. However, that being said. If you don't want the headaches and spending hours looking for lodging, lift ticket deals, airline tickets and all of the rest of the stuff that needs to be taken care of and you have a decent size pockets...then RMG is the place for you.

One more note. I am not saying that they are way above normal costs. I have talked to them several times on multiple trips. I just found that i could do it cheaper with a little extra work on my part. If you spend a little time here on EPICSKI, you can and will get the info you need to make a really good trip and more than likely cheaper as well. That is my $.02 worth.

RMG only makes sense with a package deal involving multiple people and multiple services (lodging, lift tickets, equipment rental).  I have used them twice and have been happy with the deals I was able to get at both Steamboat and Aspen.  Lately though, there seems to be something amiss within the organization as I have on at least three occasions requested price quotes for trips and RMG completely dropped the ball by not following through.  While I did get an initial e-mail asking for additional information, I was never given a price quote and I ultimately did things on my own.  Of course, I still get their e-mails.  Not sure why I haven't unsubscribed yet...

Well, we do need a complete package, but I'm already the type to spend hours (upon hours) researching everything myself. With me they were good and responsive (the rep was David), and had a bit of a discount on lift passes, but were unable to compete with VRBO lodging prices. Unfortunately in this trip we have to be careful with our budget, so the ~$200 price difference was significant. But from my experience I wouldn't have a problem recommending them or giving them another try in the future.

Used Rocky Mountain once about 8 years ago for a trip to Snowmass. I think it was only to book a condo and maybe lift tickets. I had FF miles, so booked the flights myself. Luckily it was a really nice condo since my wife spent the week there after tearing her ACL on the first day of the trip.
