Join BLUE HAWK at The Westin Snowmass in Snowmass, Colorado for the 8th Annual Winter Summit. The Winter Summit meeting will be held on Monday afternoon, January 13. In addition to business, enjoy skiing/snowboarding, snowmobiling and fly fishing.

As you drive up to Snowmass Village, don’t be surprised if you feel the pace of life slowing down a bit. The serene valley where this small mountain town resides is ideal for mountain getaways where you truly want to get away.

Snowmass is by far the largest of the four mountains in the Aspen Snowmass collection. Snowmass offers the greatest options for terrain, winter activities and on-mountain dining.

You could spend your entire trip skiing and riding its terrain without covering the same ground twice. From the choice expert terrain of Burnt Mountain Glades, High Alpine and the Cirque, to the long blue groomers and impressive beginner facilities for newcomers, it is an easy choice. In 2018, Snowmass celebrated its 50th anniversary, and this year, the all-new Snowmass Base Village boasts an ice rink, climbing wall along with tasty restaurants and lively bars.

This trip is suitable for first-time skiers through advanced and everyone in between.

Not a skier? Not a problem! There is plenty to do for non-skiers.

Both rivers are designated as Gold Medal Rivers by the Colorado Department of Wildlife. Please dress in layers.  Warm, wool socks, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and gloves are recommended.  All other necessary gear and equipment is provided, including waders and boots.  Group will be divided into smaller groups of 2-3 anglers.
