Staying at the Hotel Ruby? SPOT bus now has a pick up right across the street from the Ruby which will take you to the Schweitzer shuttle system to avoid all driving! A specially scheduled concert bus will be heading down the mountain at 1am so you can stay and party till after midnight! After stopping at the Park and Ride lot at the bottom of the mountain, the 1am bus will continue on to the Hotel Ruby located on Hwy 95 in Ponderay so party goers who’ve booked rooms at the hotel can get a free ride all the way to their rooms! Hotel Ruby is offering rooms at great rates for the night, plus an onsite restaurant and bar — what a great deal! 


The VIP seating option is back again this year for guests looking for a more exclusive experience. For an additional charge, a limited number of guests can say goodbye to 2019 with reserved table seating in the exclusive “10 Barrel VIP Corner” of Taps. The 10 Barrel VIP Corner guests will have their own private bar and bartender, 2 free drinks per person, exclusive appetizers, reserved seating, and their own 10 Barrel or champagne delivery for the toast at midnight.
