FOR UPCOMING MEETINGS

Aspen Anesthesia Seminar

January 30 - February 6, 2021 at the Viceroy Snowmass Resort

When flying to attend the Aspen Anesthesia Conference there are three destination airports that are commonly used by our attendees:

1. Aspen Airport
The Aspen airport (ASE) is 8 miles from Snowmass (about a 15 minute drive), and is now only served by United and American Airlines, so it's more important than ever to book your airfare early to get the best rates and help ensure availability! Most United Airlines flights require a transfer in Denver, but there are direct flights from LA, San Francisco, Chicago, and Houston. American Airlines offers direct flights from Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth. If you have the choice, we really recommend booking United instead of American flights, as United has better odds of landing planes than American, American cancels more flights than United and more often diverts flights to Grand Junction where busing over is involved, and United has many more flights a day so if weather causes rescheduling you have a lot more options. Winter storms can delay arrivals & departures, but that is less of a problem since the airport systems have been upgraded and is usually better than driving in inclement weather. Most Hotels/Condos offer courtesy shuttle transportation to/from the Aspen airport, making this a convenient option. A free transportation system in the area allows the option of not renting a car.

HERTZ offers excellent discounted rates for those of our group arriving in any of the regional airports.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION IN ASPEN/SNOWMASS
While in Aspen/Snowmass, there is no need for a rental car. Snowmass Village has a free shuttle service that begins at 7:00 am and runs until after midnight.

Excellent free shuttle bus transportation is offered between the four ski mountains through the Roaring Fork Transit Authority (RFTA), which provides free bus service between Aspen and Snowmass from 6:15 AM - 2:15 AM. Using the free bus transportation eliminates having to deal with parking hassles, so it is a highly recommended and great option. Taxis are also available. Taxis will be waiting at the airport and can be found in the streets of Aspen, but in Snowmass you need to call ahead. On busy nights call 30-60 minutes in advance. It is even recommended to call 15-20 minutes ahead in Aspen to avoid waiting. Call 970-925-TAXI (8294) or 970-925-2400.
