The hikes are scheduled for mornings because summer storms generally happen in the afternoon. Hiking is completely optional, although interesting discussions usually occur during the hikes.

Location and Lodging

Crested Butte is a small resort town located at about 9000 feet, near the continental divide. It is known for its skiing in the winter and hiking and mountain biking in the summer.

We hold the event in town, and free buses run up to the ski mountain every 15 minutes.

One of the most popular things to do for conferences is to rent houses together. You can do this through the conference mailing list -- often one person finds the house, and then others come and fill it up.

This site is probably the most well-maintained reference to hotels and restaurants in downtown Crested Butte (where we hold the event -- note that you should try to stay downtown and not on the mountain, so you can just walk everywhere). Note that site only lists hotel-style lodging; there is also a very nice hostel, and numerous AirB&B's and VRBO-style spaces available.

You can also find further (albeit outdated in some places) details about lodging and how to get to Crested Butte, but if you're in a hurry you can just call the Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce at (800) 545-4505 and they will help you make a reservation. Remember to ask for a reservation in the town of Crested Butte, and not on the mountain, in order to be close to the conference location. However, in the Summer there are always more rooms available on the mountain than in town, and the bus is very convenient to get from the mountain to town.

If you're on a budget, try the hostel or ask the Chamber of Commerce about camping.

Here's a page of Airline tips.

High-speed Internet is available in the conference location and at several locations within easy walking distance of the conference location. Many lodgings provide Internet access but you should ask to make sure.

Restaurants: This is a reasonably accurate list. There are also a few restaurants on the mountain, including the popular Django's.

Often people stay the day after the conference or for the weekend; informal gatherings have been known to happen.
