Times

WinterCAMP starts promptly at 7 am each morning and ends around 10pm each evening. Participants are expected to be engaged during these times. Make arrangements with your office so you are not disturbed during WinterCAMP hours. (And don't think you are going to be able to get work done after 10pm. You will need your sleep.)

Dress Code

Come dressed to engage, not to impress. Daytime activites will take place outdoors. March tends to be fairly warm (mid 30's) during the day, however higher elevations can be quite chilly when the wind picks up at 11,400 feet. with over 8,100 skiable acres there is plenty to do and you wouldn't want to miss any of it!  See our Surviving at 9,100 feet link.

Meals

Breakfast at the house is provided each morning.

Lunches are not provided. Some people pack their own, others choose to use one of the on-mountain restaurants.

Dinner is on us and our generous sponsor, Dow Building Solutions, Tuesday - Thursday for those who earn it.   

Cocktails and other libations are provided at the Monday night party.
