Annual Conference Presented by SMI Snomakers

Mon, Tue & Wed, April 8 – 10, 2024

Park City, UT

CCSAA  announces early details of the in-person Annual Conference scheduled for April 8-10, 2024 in Park City, UT.

The Annual Conference is an incredible opportunity to spend time with other owners, operators and suppliers from around North America and enjoy skiing, education sessions, grooming demos and social events.  Networking is the key to the CCSAA Conferences and this conference will be no different.

Park City will be an amazing location for the CCSAA Annual conference.  The venue is located in the heart of ski country and the historic mining town with a quaint downtown area with shops and restaurants.  Come for the conference, stay for the skiing, shopping and food.

Not to Miss

We are working on additional elements for our group to do while at the conference, details to come, but being discussed is:

  • Fantastic Skiing in town as well as day trips to Bonanza Flats
  •  Alf Engen Ski Museum and George Eccles Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum.
  • Visit to the US Ski Team’s Center of Excellence
  • High Noon Brewery
  • Visit to Rossignol Ski Facility in Park City
  • Numerous great restaurants
  • More…

The primary benefit of the CCSAA conference is having time to talk with other industry professionals! The information gleaned from the presentations is fantastic, but secondary to having time to focus on detailed discussions with folks that are doing the same thing I am every day.

Getting to Park City

Salt Lake City International Airport is your only air option to getting to Park City, but it has connections to all the major US West Coast airports plus Honolulu. It’s a hub for Delta Airlines, so that’s probably where you’ll find the most convenient schedules. Southwest also flies there and is generally cheaper, but with fewer direct flights and some occasionally bizarre routing. It is exceedingly rare to see weather-induced interruptions in Salt Lake.

Social Events

For years, Conference attendees have agreed that time spent together on the trails, over lunch or at a social event is one of the most important elements of the Conferences.  PistenBully will be sponsoring a series of social events at the Conference this year that will not only be great fun but will allow attendees to have that time over a drink build those critical relationships.  Details to come.
