    The National Conference on Wilderness Medicine The National Conference on Wilderness Medicine Document Transcript

    • Twenty Eighth Annual National Conference on Wilderness Medicine Snowbird/Alta, Utah Ranked #1 Ski Resort in the USA by Skiing Magazine March 5-9, 2014
    • National Conference on Wilderness Medicine “The premiere course on man’s interface with the environment.” Welcome to Snowbird/Alta! Snowbird and Alta have widely been acclaimed as “some of the best powder snow on earth”! Tucked away in Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon, Snowbird was named by On The Snow Magazine as the Visitors’ Choice Award for Best Overall Resort. Located just 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, visitors can easily fly and ski “the Bird” on the same day. Although famous for its abundance of dry Utah powder and steep runs, Snowbird offers a wide variety of terrain (27% Beginner, 38% Intermediate, 35% Advanced) that caters to all ability levels. Its 125-person Aerial Tram whisks visitors an impressive 2,900 vertical feet from base to summit in only seven minutes. Off the slopes, guests have four slopeside lodging options, as well as plentiful dining and nightlife opportunities. Even so, Snowbird didn’t win this award for its village; OnTheSnow readers chose it best overall because there’s nothing quite like a week in the canyon, with nothing to do except enjoy great snow, great skiing, a nice meal and a soak in the hot tub. Snowbird shares the canyon with Alta Ski Area to the east. Both resorts offer a joint day pass allowing full access all of the terrain on both mountains: 26 ski lifts and tows and a skiable area of 4,700 acres (19 km2). The Baldy Express lift allows access to Alta from Snowbird. Snowbird is the most accessible world-renowned four season Mountain Resort in the USA. Only 29 miles from the SLC International Airport.
