Transportation Between UU and Snowsport Resorts

Resorts with four minivans. The drivers

Paper presentations are scheduled to be 30 minutes long, except that Ph.D. students’ presentations are limited to 20 minuets long. Each paper presentation will be followed by a discussant’s comments/presentation for up to 5 minutes leaving 5 minutes for Q/A and transition. Each panelist’s presentation will be up to 10 minutes long leaving the balance of the session to Q/A and discussion.
A notebook will be available for PPT presentation. Please bring your presentation on a flash disk or send it to Zhuo Yang (email@example.com) or me by email in advance.
o Ski Rental – we recommend renting skis/snowboards for multiple days at Breeze. You can rent for March 3rd and 4th only but pick up after 2 pm on March 2nd. Please reserve at the foothill location only. To obtain 20% online rental discount, 20day advance reservation will be required. For single day rental, it would be most convenient to rent at the resort of your choice on your snowsport day.
o Climate/clothing – the high of day will be in the high 40s to low 50s on March 2nd and 3rd dropping to low 40s on March 4th. The temperature at the base of the lifts is likely to be in the 20s for the high. It is expected to be windy with snow on late Friday and throughout Sat. Please prepare warm snowsport clothing. I cannot say this will be the best snowsport weather but the company will be first-class!
o Snowsport lessons – please visit websites of the ski resorts – www.skibrighton.com, www.deervalley.com, and www.parkcitymountain.com/winter/index.html for information on lessons. Please coordinate your ski rentals based on whether your lessons include rentals.

for beginners to learn and become confident.
Advanced skiers will also find enough challenging courses there. Parking and getting around is fairly
convenient there. Lucky snowboarders pay
The Park City Mountain Resort is a popular world class resort. A wide choices of runs. You can access some lifts until 7 pm dependent on your lift tickets.
o Lift tickets – discount lift tickets will be available for regular conditions – e.g., regular full day and all lifts. For half-day, long-day, beginner areas, or child lift tickets don’t have discounts and have to be purchased at the resorts.
