Alta Spring Ski Meeting

March 19-23, 2023

   Speakers:  Drs. Jim Lavely and Kristin MacDonald 

Diehard shredders and powder hounds rejoice! Winter lives on in Alta, UT where you can bask in some of the finest spring skiing in all of North America. Situated high atop Little Cottonwood Canyon, Alta is less than an hour's drive from the Salt Lake City airport, (Catch an early morning flight from the East and be there for lunch and an afternoon of skiing.) Alta has something for everyone, from steep and gnarly chutes and trees to smooth corduroy groomers and a top-notch ski school.  Also, for those who want to venture further OR bring their snowboard (still not allowed at Alta!) there is a connector to Snowbird, Utah. You can even buy one ticket and ski both.  Or, both are on IKON pass!  Snowbird's famous tram is a must-do at least once.

Our meeting site is the Alta Peruvian Lodge located at the base of Alta. The lodge features every amenity you could hope for including a comfortable great room, outdoor heated swimming pool, party-size hot tub, on-site ski rental, and for those with any energy left, a busy saloon that’s one of Alta's hotspots. For a quieter venue, drop into the library after dinner for a full-length movie or just curl up by the fire with a good book.

To put back some of those calories you burn off skiing, you are going to need some poolchow and the Alta Peruvian offers some of the best in the canyon. The day begins with the famous AP buffet featuring a variety of breakfast foods including made to order omelets and freshly baked breads and pastries. Lunch consists of a selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and occasionally light entrees; however, if you just cannot bear the thought of leaving the slopes at midday, they’ll pack you a bag lunch at no extra charge! Dinner (supper if y’all come from the South) is an elegant table service affair with your choice of entrees from a selection of meats, fish, pasta, and poultry. (Ostrich or Elk, anyone?) The best part? It's all included in your meeting fees!

This year's lectures will focus on neurology and cardiology, and we are lucky to have Drs. Jim Lavely and Kristin MacDonald as our speakers.  We will have lectures 7-9ish and 4-6pm for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with the full day in between to play in the snow  (total of 12 credits of RACE-approved CE). Thursday is a bonus day, catch first chair or sleep late.  Limited attendance so book now!
