Fly to Denver Colorado and either rent a car or use the Colorado Mountain Express, a shuttle company that services the Dillon/Silverthrone area.
If you need to ship your bike via bike flights or Fed Ex, contact cindy and she will send you her address and receive your bike and drive it up to camp for you. You can also fly with your bike Colorado Mountain Express can accommodate it.
Where to Stay:
If we have enough interest we will rent a camp house that you have the option to rent a room in. This is a huge part of the fun of camp and these rooms will be first to purchase, first to get. If you don't want a room in the camp house look for lodging in Dillon or Silverthorne, there are many places to airbnb or vrbo. Rooms for the weekend in the camp house tend to range between $299 and $499 for the room size and sharing status :)
Aim to bring your lunch each day to eat during the lunch lectures. We will head out to dinner each night or you are welcome to hit the town on your own.
What to Bring:
We recommend checking the weather the week leading leading up to camp. As a good rule of thumb, bring layers. Colorado can be quite chilly in the mornings and warm to hot during the middle of the day. Rain can be a factor as well. We will not ride or run during lightening storms. Safety is always our first factor.
Swimming: All swims are open water swims in mountain lakes. North Pond can be cold (Mid-60s) and perfect prep for cold water races such as 106 West. Bring a well fitting wetsuit and booties, neoprene caps and ear plugs are also recommended.
Biking: You will want arm warmers, knee warmers, hat, gloves and a rain coat. A riding coat might also come in handy.
Running: All of our run sessions will be outdoors. There will be lots of single track and some bike path running. The footing can go from soft dirt to heavily rooted. Trail shoes are encouraged, as is a way to carry your hydration, whether it's a hand bottle or a hydration pack. It's best to bring layers for early morning runs.
