Where to Stay

Keystone Resort, situated in the mountains of Colorado's beautiful Summit County, will again be the venue for our Twelfth International Programming Conference, Colorado Software Summit 2003.

We urge you to secure your accommodations as soon as possible: a block of rooms close to the Conference Center and at special rates is being held for Colorado Software Summit attendees, but only through August 2003. If you book your room after August, you may farther away than you would like from the Conference Center (there are free shuttle buses to get you there). Although Keystone has plenty of rooms for all of our attendees, they will not hold those rooms beyond the end of August, and it is possible that you might not be able to reserve a room at Keystone at all if you try to book your room later than August.


Keystone Resort has village studio condominiums for $120/night single occupancy or $135/night double occupancy, and one bedroom condominiums for $139/night single occupancy, $154/night double occupancy. Children 12 and under stay free. Additional guests are $15/day.


Keystone Resort also offers a hotel-like setting in the Keystone Lodge at $120.00/night single occupancy or $135/night double occupancy.

To make your reservations, you will need to contact Keystone Resort directly. You can download a Keystone room registration form (Adobe Acrobat PDF), and fax it to the Keystone Resort or call them with the information. Be sure to mention our special Colorado Software Summit group code: CB3CCS1. The phone numbers at Keystone for room reservations are:

800.258.0437 U.S.A. & Canada
970.496.4242 International
970.496.4343 Fax

Keystone is one of Colorado's premier ski resorts, owned by Vail Associates, which also owns Vail, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge.

Simply ask for travel information when booking your accommodations, and compare the air fares offered to your locally obtainable rates. Keystone can also make arrangements for you for the shuttle from the Denver International Airport.

Summit County, Colorado

When you are not immersed in Colorado Software Summit activities, we hope you will enjoy the natural surroundings, friendly western culture and opportunities for things to do. Keystone Resort has information on hand and is available to help you plan excursions of all types.

A word about climate . . .

Colorado mountain weather is, at best, unpredictable. Temperatures can easily range from sunny and 60°F (16°C) to snow, all in one week – and often, all in one day! Because of Keystone's closeness to the sun, at almost two miles (or 3.2 kilometers) above sea level, it usually feels warmer during the day than the temperature would indicate. However, as soon as the sun sets, the temperature drops with it. The range between the daytime high temperature and the nighttime low temperature is typically about 30 degrees Fahrenheit, so a daytime 60°F (16°C) is likely to become a nighttime 30°F (-1°C). Best advice: bring comfortable, casual clothing that can be easily layered.
