2018 Conference - Planning your Trip

Planning Your Trip


Historic average temperatures are highs of 84󠆓° and lows of 50° for 21-24 June in Midway, UT.  Of course, it is always hotter or colder than the averages, but at least you can probably count on sunny weather.  It cools down quickly at dusk, and being on the shady side of a mountain, that will come early even though sunset is not until 9 pm.



All conference sessions and activities are casual or business casual dress.  Bring a sweater to sessions in case the air conditioning works better than at home.  You should feel fine in shorts for all daytime outdoor activities, but in the evenings, altitude and shade require a jacket.


Transportation - SL International Airport to Zermatt

TRAX from the airport to downtown SLC ($2.50) and the SLC-PC ($4.50) route 901 bus will get you to the Kimball Junction Transit Center near Park City, but still doesn’t get you to Midway.  However, from Park City you can Uber on to Zermatt Utah in Midway for about $20.  Not too convenient.

Canyon shuttle can be scheduled by visiting www.canyontransport.com or by calling (not toll free) 801-255-1841.  One to three people can divide the $135 one-way base fare.  Additional passengers are $45.  Pickup and return may be scheduled in advance.

One-way, up to 4 person traditional taxi ($116), up to 4 person Lyft or Uber X ($57.80) or up to 6 person Lyft Plus or Uber XL ($79.87) can be obtained.

Find a rental car starting at $33 a day at www.carrentals.com


Around Midway

It’s about a mile to “downtown” Midway where you can find nice local restaurants.  Remember, it is a small, rural place.  If you call Uber, they’ll likely have to come to you from Park City, about a 20 minute drive one way.  But actually, everything you need is probably at the Resort – restaurants, snack bar, gift shop, spa, and activity outfitters.
