Do you need a roommate? I am looking for one for the July 8-13 session. This will be my 4th year there. I'm a non-smoker and non-snorer. I'll be driving from Boulder and so will have my car in Aspen.

All transportation to concerts and other events are included in the package, making this very convenient from the beautiful base in Snowmass Village.

How do participants get from the Stonebridge Inn to the festival site? Public transportation? Transportation included as part of the program fee?

Nancy Karp May 21, 2014 at 11:29 PM

Does anyone know how far the Stonebridge Hotel is from the festival site?
Karin Bond May 22, 2014 at 04:39 PM

n answer to your question, the hotel is quite far - much too far to walk. Even taking the free bus that travels up and down the Roaring Fork Valley would mean a long hike - maybe a couple of miles - down to the bus stop - and a long, hot hike back up to the hotel at the end of your excursion. I live in the Denver area, so drove there and I did use my car to visit Aspen. The hotel is rather isolated in Snowmass which does have a small shopping area, but it's nothing like Aspen which is a fun combination of the glitzy and the outdoorsy. The center of Aspen is also a bit far from the music tent and concert hall and there is a free shuttle bus. Stonebridge was OK, but the rooms too warm in the evenings with no air-conditioning and no cross-ventilation. The program was very enjoyable, the scenery amazing. Karin

In my experience on July 2014 trip all of the above was true except the distance to the bus stop. Bus stop was steps from the hotel lobby.

If anyone is driving from Denver to Snowmass on July 9th and would like someone to share the gas, please let me know. I am looking forward to sharing a delightful and stimulating Roads Scholar adventure with you all.

The jump in one day from sea level to 8,000 ft will be daunting especially with the evening activities. I am going a day early and staying for more than the first session and needed a place to stay that was reasonable. For many years I have successfully bid for hotels on Priceline.com. This is my latest result:
3* Snowmass Stonebridge Inn 7/16-18 $70
This was the 2nd bid, the first at $65 was refused. Added to that was insurance for $10, taxes and fees $26.02 and I expect to pay about 4% resort fee on check-in. Total- $176.02. 
This excludes breakfast but does include free internet and local transportation. The best price online was $129+++.
Though Priceline is "blind" bidding for your requested star level, I knew any place in this small town would be OK. Needless to say, I was delighted to get Stonebridge Inn.

I am driving to Aspen from the Denver metro area on the 13th and returning the 20th. Would anybody like to ride with me and share expenses?
