Flying or driving into the Salt Lake Valley, you will be enchanted with the snow capped mountain ranges that lie to the east and west of the valley. Salt Lake City lies between the steep Wasatch range to the east and the Oquirrh Mountain range to the west. The Great Salt Lake sits to the Northwest of the city.
Our convention site at the Montage at Deer Valley is approximately 30 minutes east of the airport. The Montage Resort is located just outside of Park City, Utah which has become known annually for the Sundance Film Festival. In fact our convention in February 2013 will be just a week or so after the 2013 Film Festival.
The Park City/Deer Valley area is an outdoor winter paradise. Deer Valley, Park City Mountain, and the Canyons Resort are within a few short miles of each other. If you are not a skier, there are plenty of activities to do. The U.S. Olympic training facility is located in Park City where they still actively use the ski jump hills, as well as the bobsled/luge/skeleton course which is a thrill to see. You may actually get to see some Olympic athletes training for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games while you are there.
Park City has many great restaurants and shopping opportunities. It is a casual winter wonderland of fun. We invite you to join us for the 2013 WIA convention. The Montage is a beautiful resort that offers plenty of activities for the entire family. If you are a skier, you will enjoy a true “ski in/out” location to the Deer Valley Resort (Ranked Americans # 1 Ski Resort) with the added benefit of impeccable service from the Montage staff.
If you are lucky, you might even get to spend some time with Monty, the canine ambassador of the Montage, a two year old Bernese Mountain Dog!
Bring your family and come and join us for the 2012 WIA convention at the Montage!
