Provide Your Own Transportation
Boulder is approximately 1 hour from Denver International Airport (DIA). We will be driving to mountain trailheads (weather dependent) you will need to provide your own transportation. We will make an effort to car pool where possible. UBER and LYFT are reliable for transportation from DIA to Boulder, but not to trailhead locations.
FYI: In the virtual program you will be assigned a buddy/partner. Transportation maybe an easy thing to coordinate together and split a car. TBD.
Book Your Own Hotel
Recommend staying at the Basecamp Hotel in Boulder, CO. I booked my room through Expedia nightly rate $160-$170 x night. You are welcome to book a hotel nearby (there are other cheaper options).
