DETAILS & PRICING
Colorado Polyamory Weekend Retreat
You must know someone in this polyamory community to be allowed to attend CPW. If you do not yet know anyone who has attended a polyamory weekend before, you can still request to register and will need to get to know the organizer before you will be allowed to join the site and register. All money received is used to pay for the lodge, food, food preparation, and a few minor expenses. We have spreadsheets showing all costs for the lodge, food, and labor. If you attend the weekend these are available on the member forums on this site and on the CPW Facebook page.
Cost is $170 to $565 per person, depending on the dates and the room configuration, this including all lodging and meals during your stay from Friday dinner to breakfast on Tuesday. Exact prices are listed for each weekend and room configuration below.
For those who would like to go but who currently have limited income, there is a sliding scale. Contact us directly about this.
We require each person who is coming to pay a $120 deposit when they register, the remainder of the balance to be paid when your group arrives (or before).
People who wish to arrive Thursday afternoon (after 4:00pm) may stay the extra night for $40 per person. This is a wonderful to time to ease into the weekend and get acclimated to the altitude. The first meal that is provided is dinner on Friday evening.
To register you will need to join this site and be approved by the admin. This will give you access to the registration page. When you register you can also be added to private forums on this page and to the CPW Facebook page for announcements and discussion (if desired). When all open spaces for the weekend have been filled we will start a waiting list.
Things to do:
The Colorado Poly Weekend is an annual long weekend retreat for polyamorous people and people in poly-relationships to hang out together in a poly-normative, accepting environment. The weekend goes from Friday afternoon to Monday or Tuesday morning (check the schedule to make sure which applies to the weekend you are attending). This retreat takes place in the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Steamboat Springs is a beautiful town located three hours north west of Denver.
Typical activities to do at the retreat are hiking, bike riding, playing board and card games, sightseeing, singing together, dancing, a discussion group, reading, relaxing, bowling, and most of all, spending lots of time with other amazing people.
The lodge has WiFi available.
There is a wonderful hot tub.
There is no smoking inside the lodge at all. There will be a designated smoking area outside the lodge.
Pets are not allowed at the lodge at all.
Children are not allowed to attend the weekend. We love children, but this is a time for people to get away from family responsibilities.
This weekend is for adults and there may be adult activities, like puns and innuendo and flirting and adult board games. It is not a pick-up scene or a swinger party. If you do not come with a partner with whom you are already sexually active, do not assume that you will find a sexual or play partner here.
This is an “Only ‘Yes!!!’ means Consent” space, and by "Yes!!!" we mean an informed, non-inebriated "Yes!!!". Anyone who violates this rule will removed from the retreat with no refund and will not be allowed back.
All meals will be made by in-house chefs. The food is served buffet style and we try to accommodate all dietary restrictions. Alcohol is not part of the meal package so bring your own if desired. Everyone coming will be asked to help do prep work and set tables once and to help bus tables and clean up after the meal once during the weekend. Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 10:00am - up until 9:00am, it is buffet with some items cooked to order, after 9:00am it is buffet only. Lunch is served from Noon to 2:00pm. Dinner is served usually around 7:00pm.
The house has stairs and most bedrooms are upstairs. If you have accessibility issues around stairs, please contact us.
There are 10 bedrooms and each bedroom has its own bathroom:
Four bedrooms each with one king bed
Two bedrooms each with two queen beds
One bedroom with two queen on bottom / full on top bunk beds
One bedroom with one king bed and one twin bed
Two bedrooms with one king bed and two twin beds (one has a trundle bed, the other has a bunk bed)
Optional "Helping Out" Tickets:
If you are in a position where you can financially help out, there are an optional tickets you can purchase one or more of for $75 each. The price of these tickets goes directly to the following causes:
Offsetting the cost of the lodge that was lost due to the 2020 pandemic lodge cancellation
Helping to pay for people who have limited income and could not otherwise attend
If you must cancel, your deposit will be returned only if and when we find a replacement for you.
If unforeseen circumstances cause the weekend to be canceled more than 30 days before the event, all deposits will be returned. If we must cancel with less than 30 days notice (basically this would only be due to severe weather circumstances), we will refund deposits based on the pro-rated refund amount returned on the lodge deposit we have already paid.
