Booking A Trip

We would love to have you travel with us! If you’re ready to pamper yourself with one of our premier hiking packages, please follow these instructions:

Please note: For guided snowshoe trips, hiking day trips or snowshoe rentals, booking forms are not needed. Simply make reservations by calling The Warming House at (970)586-2995 or e-mail at

The Walter Tishma Way

To book the Walter Tishma Way contact us with your preferred dates and let us see if we can accommodate you.   Let us know the number of people and whether they are double or single occupancy.

If booking a double occupancy room let us know whether you prefer a room with one or two beds. Older lodges have mostly double beds if you’re booking a room with one bed. A twin room may give you more space. Also, these older lodges try to book rooms with bathrooms for us, however, if these rooms are booked, bathrooms are down the hall. This may be part of your “roughing it” adventure.

Arriving by Car or Shuttle (WTW)

On the WTW form, let us know if you’re arriving by car or by shuttle. If by The Estes Park Shuttle or Estes Park Limo, , be sure you’ve contacted them prior to your trip and made arrangements. We will pick you up on the first day of your hike and deliver you to the trailhead. Your package does not include transportation to and from the airport. It is your responsibility to get transportation reserved.

If you’re arriving by car, you will park at the Estes Park Visitor’s Center and have a ticket on your car. We will transport you to the start of the trail. We will also pick you up and return you to your car at the end of the trip.

Health Concerns

At the bottom or on a separate sheet, let us know if you have any allergies or health concerns we should be aware of. Even on a self-guided WTW trip, if something were to happen, we’re the ones who know where you are and could pass on any important information to the National Park. It’s just safer to be prepared.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation 30 days or more prior to the commencement of your trip- $150 booking fee per room.

Cancellation 14 days to 29 days- $150 booking fee and 50% of your trip costs.

Cancellation less than 14 days- 100% of your trip costs.

Having traveled and booked trips abroad for many years, we highly encourage you to be aware of the cancellation policy and to take out trip insurance. Our lodges are small and seasonal and they trust me to keep their best interests at heart. We work very hard to accommodate each request for a trip. Our time is valuable and our prices are more than reasonable. Please be responsible. As one travel company so aptly put it, “Travel insurance saves you the embarrassment of having to ask for a refund and us the embarrassment of having to say no.”
