My grandson and I are planning on attending the June 22-27th session of this program. I'm looking for someone who would be interested in a car rental with us. If this is you, please contact me at sandykristen10@yahoo.com . The cost of the shuttle will be around $400 round trip for two.

Cannot reach Alpine Shuttle in Denver (only get a recording) to find out cost of
shuttle from Denver to Steamboat Springs.
Planning for June 2015. Anyone have any
info re this? Thanks.

Susan, we made our reservations on line at goalpine.com. On their home page, click on "Leaving FROM the Airport" to go to round trip info. HINT: flights over the Rocky Mountains from Denver to/from Steamboat Springs are often delayed because of wind conditions or summer storms. We experienced delays in both directions. On our return trip back to Denver, we missed our connection and had to reschedule flight back home. I must say, however, that it was all worth it -- we had a wonderful time on the program. The instructors are super, and all the activities are well planned for an outstanding adventure with our granddaughter. I've attended 20 or so RS programs, and this was definitely a highlight. You'll have a great time!
