Getting Around Boulder

Boulder is a walking-friendly town and there are ample accommodations and restaurants within easy walking distance from Shambhala. There are several more options a brief drive (6-7 minutes) away, as well as Whole Foods and Alfalfa’s Market.

Local Bus
The Boulder Skip Bus goes up and down Broadway, stopping at the Center every 7-15 minutes. Broadway is Boulder’s main north-south artery traveling to Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall, downtown area, and many hotels.

Other in-town Bus schedules can be found here.

Boulder is an active bicycling town. Information on renting a bike at one of the many bicycle stations can be found here.
B-cycle is Boulder’s bike sharing program which allows you to rent and return a bike from various stations around town. Unlike typical bike rental, each ride is kept short, and B-cycles are returned to their stations when not in use rather than being kept and locked up. Pick up a bike at any B-station, and return it to any station when you’re done.

Other Ride Options
Lyft and Uber are both available in Boulder.
Local Taxi Service is available in Boulder. Contact Boulder Yellow Cab/zTrip or call 855-MY-zTrip (855-699-8747).

What to Bring

Below are some items we suggest you bring for your stay in Boulder:

  • Water bottle (you’ll want to be drinking lots of water, especially if you’re not used to being at a higher altitude)
  • Sunscreen and Sunglasses
  • Hat or Cap
  • Layers of Clothing
  • Comfortable Shoes for walking around town or hiking the trails
  • Notebook and/or Laptop to take notes as Jayson will be reviewing some concepts and offering additional teachings and distinctions
  • Personal Snacks
  • Any Personal Medications

Boulder has a temperate climate and receives a majority of sunny or mostly sunny days each year, and September is considered one of the most comfortable months with average temperatures around the 70’s during the day and low 50’s at night.

Average temperatures in Boulder vary drastically due mostly to its elevation (5,430 feet) and location in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Weather is subject to change quickly, so we recommend bringing layers for your stay, as well as each day of the live event, in order to be comfortable.
