Mountain Retreat in Breckenridge

When ETHDenver is over, the fun doesn’t stop! We’ll head to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado for 4 days/3 nights of skiing, chillin’, libations, and blockchain nerdery. This year we’re headed to Breckenridge! Located under two hours west of Denver, this former mining town is now a world class ski resort destination that still holds true to its Victorian roots. It’s your retreat and you can relax how you want to, but we will also have a general event schedule you can pick and choose from. NOTE: The logistical details in this documents are subject to change. The dates of the overall event, however, will not change. We will do our best to communicate material changes as they happen to those who have registered.
