WHAT IT’S ABOUT

The 2017 Outdoor Recreation Summits will convene at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort and Ruby’s Inn in Bryce Canyon National Park. These annual gatherings bring together outdoor industry leaders, county and city officials, user groups and public land managers to focus on Utah’s outdoor recreation. The northern and southern summits feature scenic settings, innovative thinking, and informative breakout sessions.

This series brings together all those that care about maintaining and improving Utah’s outstanding resources. In 2016 we took the summits around the state to better focus on regional needs. This tactic brought nearly 600 people from manufacturers to students and federal land managers to local government. The 2017 series will build upon this moment, to further expand stakeholder networks and help us improve the experience for our residents and visitors.

On October 3rd, summit attendees can take shuttles from Ruby’s the Grand and Ebenezer’s to the rim of Bryce Canyon for dinner, beginning at 6 pm. Buses will shuttle people to and from the Rim area for the pre-summit dinner.

Red Canyon Transit will provide two buses for a dinner shuttle on October 3rd.  The buses will start shuttling at approximately 6:30 PM, and be done by 10:00 or 10:30 PM.  The drivers will report at 6 PM that day, to be ready to load at 6:15-ish, and go at 6:30 – or as directed that evening.  We will shuttle as needed out and back to the Rim area. Loading at Ruby’s and Ebenezer’s.

Then Join Our Summit!
