Dates & Location
The 26th Annual Meeting of the VESS will take place February 4-7, 2016 at Park City Mountain Resort (formerly Canyons Resort) in Park City, Utah.
Located in the heart of Utah and only a 35-minute drive from Salt Lake City International Airport, Park City Mountain Resort is home to over 7,300 skiable acres with a good mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain. With dozens of non-stop flights from over 70 cities arriving daily at Salt Lake International Airport (SLC)-and a short 35-minute highway drive-Park City is by far the quickest way to start your mountain adventure.
