For those of your coming from out of town, there are all the usual options in the form of hotels, VRBO, B&B’s, etc. in the area. No need to reiterate the choices here, start by Googling for options in Whitefish, Kalispell, etc.
Whitefish Bike Retreat is a new option and of course very appropriate to the ride. It’s located in a great setting just north of Whitefish. Cricket – the owner – is offering a 10% discount to Cino participants, and will shuttle you to and from the Cino start. It is also an opportunity to meet our Guest Rider who is staying there. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 406-260-0274, or click here to see their website.
Per usual, Reed is offering an invite for self-contained types to camp on his property, which is only a couple miles from the start. You may get roped into some Cino organization duties. Call 406-270-0590 or email email@example.com if interested.
There (Hot Springs)
Alamedas Hot Springs Resort is the center of activities. The rooms are generally booked before each year’s Cino is even announced, but they do offer camping and the majority of participants camp there with access to the facilities for a small fee. See their website here for more info.
Symes Hot Springs Hotel is the other “major” accommodation available. It’s very close to Alamedas, and they have the hot pools you’re going to want to try. They do book up, but generally not as early as Alamedas. Click here for their website.
