Rental Car Option: Rent a car and valet park your car for $10 a night at the hotel.

Colorado is notorious for its changing weather, sometimes we experience multiple seasons all in one day! October in the mountains will most likely see cooler fall days and chilly nights (highs in the mid-50's and lows in the upper 20's). Make sure to bring a sweater and a jacket. Layers are always a good idea in Colorado as the weather changes throughout the day.
The conference, group activities, and Sunday dinner will all be business casual. Feel free to wear branded gear! We recommend comfortable walking shoes to explore the Avon/Vail Valley area. We suggest the dressier end of business casual attire for Monday night’s Awards Dinner. If you’re stressed on what to pack, chat with your FRM.
