Fall in the Rocky Mountains is a breath-taking experience with the aspen leaves changing into a myriad of green, yellow, orange, and red colors. RMBL can host large events, groups, and conferences (more than 30 people) in the fall, subject to availability. We may be able to accommodate smaller groups at other times, although our facilities are usually filled with students and scientists from late June to mid-August. RMBL is snowed in from mid-November to mid-May with access by ski or snowshoe only.

A refundable research deposit of $5,000 is required for each event. This will be refunded unless a research site is significantly damaged or if we have problems with people parking outside of the designated areas or walking off trails. If the latter happens, but research is not damaged, we will issue one warning. If we have problems after the one warning, we will ask individuals to leave and keep the deposit. If there are no issues the deposit will be returned no later than one week after all remaining charges are taking care of.
