Most participants will choose to book a rental homes with other attendees or stay at a local hotel in downtown Aspen. If you are looking for a cost effective lodging option, prices can be lower in Snowmass which is located about 20 minutes from Aspen.
Please note that lodging is already selling out for the summer and will get more expensive as we get closer to the event date. We recommend securing lodging early, looking at accommodations in Snowmass, and arranging group housing to help with rising costs.

Participants should book their flights into Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE) which is approximately 10-15 minutes from hotels throughout Aspen. Please plan to arrive in Aspen no later than Tuesday, July 25 in the morning and plan to depart no earlier than Friday, July 28 in the afternoon. We encourage you to consider arriving a day early to acclimate to Aspen's altitude.
During the summertime, direct flights to Aspen are available from Denver, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Complimentary airport transportation is included at many of the hotels above and should be coordinated directly with the property.
Driving to Aspen
The drive from Denver to Aspen is approximately 4 hours depending on traffic and weather with two routes available either over Independence Pass (via Highway 82) or on Highway I-70 (via Glenwood Canyon and Glenwood Springs.) Check cotrip.org for up-to-date information and any road closures.
Shuttle Transportation within Aspen
Complimentary shuttles are available to bring participants from downtown Aspen to the Aspen Meadows Resort. An event shuttle will circulate during select hours with stops at the Aspen Meadows Resort and the other hotel properties listed above. A schedule will be available at registration. Downtown Aspen is very walkable and the WE-cycle bikeshare program makes quick trips across town easy and fun!
Still have questions about travel to Aspen? Please contact Charlotte Lewis at email@example.com.
Weather and Altitude
The days should be high-70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit (21-26 C) and the evenings will be in the 40s F (5-10 C). The weather in Aspen changes very quickly and summertime rainstorms are not uncommon. Sunscreen is encouraged for all attendees.
The dress code for the Action Forum is "Aspen Casual"- attire can range from jeans, boots, and a rugged button-up shirt to khakis, loafers, and a sport coat. We recommend packing layers as Aspen can be very cold in the morning/evening and hot during the day. If you plan to participate in the hike, bring sneakers or hiking boots.
Oxygen levels are lower at high altitudes. That coupled with the dry climate can contribute to the symptoms of altitude sickness- nausea, insomnia, shortness of breath, headache, accelerated pulse or nasal congestion. You can prepare yourself by staying well-hydrated, avoiding alcoholic beverages, keeping physical exertion to a minimum and taking in additional oxygen. An oxygen bar will be available.
Activities in Aspen
- Bike from Aspen to Woody Creek Tavern – You can bike from Aspen to Woody Creek Tavern on the Rio Grande Trail. It is a flat gravel path. Woody Creek Tavern is a historic Aspen restaurant that Hunter S Thompson used to frequent. They have outdoor seating and great food/margaritas. You can take the bus and bikes back so that you don’t have to bike home too.
- Gondola Rides to the Top of Aspen Mountain - Ride the Silver Queen Gondola to 11,212 ft. to the Sundeck. Grab lunch, go for a quick hike or just enjoy the view! It's quite spectacular.
- Bike Riding with Blazing Adventures
- Shopping in Aspen
- Remede Spa - St. Regis Aspen
- More Activities - For more activities such as hot air balloon rides, horse back riding, paragliding, rafting, jeep tours, rock climbing, road biking, etc., please take a look at the Aspen Chamber's website.
