On March 31st-April 2nd out there on the west coast we have Winterwondergrass which runs a festival in Colorado and California both. They are returning following two sold out years in Tahoe and since this is truly one heck of a fine Bluegrass lineup I thought I would dwell upon this festival as I have in the past. This portion is directly from their website:
“TO CREATE SIMPLE AND AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY GATHERINGS FOR THE ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT, CONCENTRATING ON QUALITY OF THE EXPERIENCE OVER QUANTITY OF ATTENDEES WITH A FOCUS ON DEDICATED ARTISTS, SUSTAINABILITY, LOCALLY SOURCED PRODUCTS AND SUPPORT OF NON PROFITS.”
WE CREATE GATHERINGS WE BELIEVE IN. THOSE THAT INSPIRE US and DRAW US INTO THEIR FOUNDATION AND CONTRIBUTE TO OUR ACTIVE ADVENTUROUS LIFESTYLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS IDEALS. WE PLACE RESPONSIBILITY ON OURSELVES AND THOSE WE SEEK TO DRAW INTO OUR FRAMEWORK AND FESTIVALS AS NOT MERE ATTENDEES, BUT PARTNERS ON THE JOURNEY.
WE SEE TRUE CONNECTION AS A SPARK OF ART, A CATALYST FOR INSPIRATION. WHAT WE BELIEVE IS LOST IN THE SUBTLE VOIDS OF CYBER COMMUNICATION AND MEGA FESTIVALS IS THE UNDILUTED ESSENCE OF EXISTENCE — THAT WHICH IS SEEN, INTERPRETED AND SHARED THROUGH THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
CULTIVATING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WILD NATURE, RAW ORIGINAL MUSIC AND THE PROTECTION OF OUR PLANET. GIVE RESPECT, GET RESPECT.
WE HAVE INCREDIBLE APPRECIATION FOR OUR COMMUNITY!

So now as always with ALL my festival series articles here are some lodging options for this festival in this area.
I look at all the websites and also do my own searching before I publish these.
The Christie Lodge
The Charter At Beaver Creek
Plus HERE is a whole page of more lodging options for you to book a room right from your home off my website for this event.
One really nice thing I have read about this particular festival is that any designated driver can register at any of the bars for FREE N/A beverages. I also wanted to point out some very nice things for this festival concerning the use of single serving water bottles.
