Yes, you will find some winter dates (Jan.-March) listed as well as spring and early summer. The weather up here in Idyllwild is unpredictable, so anyone who winters down in this area (Palm Springs, Temecula, Hemet, etc.) is welcome to come on up for a retreat if the weather is fair.
I don't recommend out-of-state students flying in for a retreat until April. In any case, I always recommend purchasing travel insurance; it's cheap, and it can save you a bundle!
The cost for a retreat in 2011 is $725, with a nonrefundable deposit required at the time of registration: $225. Why nonrefundable? This is to keep folks from registering for a retreat and then backing out at the last minute. It's standard practice in the art & craft retreat industry, and again, if you purchase trip-cancellation insurance you should be able to get a refund if you find that you must cancel.
If we have really bad weather up here (not likely after March) or if I myself must cancel the retreat for some unforeseen purpose, I will refund your deposit.

Any questions? Feel free to email me and I'll do my best to answer them.
I hope to meet you in Idyllwild soon!
