Venue

The CCMVal 2005 meeting will be held in the Main Seminar Room of the NCAR Mesa Laboratory. NCAR is located in Boulder, Colorado, which is about an hour Northwest of Denver.

 


Travel

The closest airport to Boulder is Denver International Airport (DIA). Participants may travel to Boulder by rental car or by shuttle. There are two shuttle services offering regular shuttle service to/from local hotels and DIA. Boulder Express and Boulder Super Shuttle. Both can be arranged from the arrivals hall at the Airport. Round Trip fares are about $35-40 on the shuttles. A public bus is available for $20 roundtrip, but requires a transfer within Boulder to get to the hotel. For groups of 2 or more traveling at the same time, you might consider a rental car, typically available at the airport for $20-40/day (arrange in advance).
