luggageIf you are from out of town and would like to be hosted by a local dancer, please indicate this on your registration form. We will do our best to connect you with another dancer who can put you up in his/her Colorado home and provide you transportation to the event locations.

If you rent a car, we advise you NOT to accept the rental car company's "toll-road" option, which will issue a charge to you every day of your rental agreement whether or not you use a toll road. There is a very direct way to drive between the airport and Boulder without using a toll road. If you do not rent a car, we will try our best to arrange local dancer carpools if logistically possible (cannot guarantee it.)

If you prefer to stay in commercial accommodations, here are some suggestions:

Historic 1909 Hotel

The National Register Landmark Hotel Boulderado (~3 miles from Avalon), which is hosting our Sunday Afternoon optional Tea, is extending a discounted rate on a limited number of rooms for our weekend attendees who wish to stay in this impeccably restored historic setting. See the attached for details.

flagHistorical note: Every item of luggage was carefully labeled, either for delivery to the cabin or to be stored in the hold until disembarkation. The correct sorting of luggage was particularly important among first-class passengers since they often carried large quantities of belongings. One first-class passenger and her son, for example, traveled with 14 trunks, four suitcases, three crates, and a medicine chest!
