By moving the conference up to mid-September (Sept. 18-20th) we’re guaranteed to have great weather, great special events on the weekend before (Snowmass Wine Festival and after (National Interscholastic Cycling Association Bike Races) in case you want to make a family trip out of it—and restaurants will still be open!!

The highlight for the family?

Try Colorado’s tallest indoor climbing wall in the glassed-in atrium of the Limelight.

Bring your “Outside Side” to Snowmass (things to do: and you’ll have a Snowmass Blast! See you in September!
