Group Ski Rate
The Holiday Inn Express & Suites has discount ski passes available for Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton. Their Ski Super Pass is available for hotel guests, and includes UTA Ski Bus transportation to the base of Wasatch, where each resort has a shuttle bus. They also have a discount on rentals available.
Attendees can also purchase discount lift tickets and save 25% off ski/board rentals at Ski ‘N See / ARCS (“arks”). Use Travel Agent Code HIESAN25 on the online rental form for your discount. ARCS is just one street away from our hotel. You can pick up where you reserve and return to any of their shops, no transfer fee.
There is a UTA Ski Bus that leaves from the nearby Trax station frequently during the day (schedules aren't published yet). The cost is $9.00 for a round-trip ticket. The hotel shuttle should be able to transport any hotel guests to the bus stop if needed, but you'll need to let them know at the front desk ahead of time.
If you plan to ski with your fellow PHPers after the conference is over, we recommend that you stay Saturday night (and Sunday night, if applicable) at the conference hotel. You can then catch the early ski bus up to the slopes each morning, and return in the evening. We've arranged for the group rate to extend through Saturday and Sunday nights.
