Abigail Allen, Vail Resorts

"I was able to network with new industry colleagues, attend different sessions with a new lens, and bring back resources, information and an award to my team in New Hampshire... I learned a lot about the efforts that NSAA, Boyne and Vail resorts are putting together to help with sustainability (amazing!) and Ski Area Tribal Relations."
2023 National Convention


Steven Cook, Copper Mountain

"The networking I was able to do during the conference, on and off the hill, will certainly prove to be priceless as I move forward in my career. I was able to meet with ski area managers from all over the country and talk with them about important issue impacting the ski industry."
2024 Western Winter Conference

Clarke Chambers, Ober Adventure

"I challenged myself to sit down at a different table for each meal and just ask questions with new people. Each time I did this, I found groups of passionate people that were willing to help me gain knowledge about anything with mountain biking. Hands down this conference was the best I have ever experienced!"

2023 Downhill Bike Park Summit


Penny Paris, Ski Saint-Bruno

"The best part of being on-site, meeting the people that make winter happen. Even better, having significant conversations with folks that offer solutions to current industry challenges. I am walking away with three different solutions to very different challenges I deal with on a day-to-day basis. "
