    The word is out. The 2018 Gathering will be in Utah! With the announcement of Snowbasin being added to the Mountain Collective Pass along with Alta and Snowbird being separated, Utah just made sense. Dates are still TBA but we are looking for it to be in February. Stay tuned.

    Yes, I am The Gathermeister.

    Edit Update:
    Because of industry commitments that we wil be working around, we will be looking mid Feb (not Presidents week) or the beginning of March.

    On the Mountain Collective you now get 2 days at each instead of 2 days total at those 2 resorts.

    No, wait, this thread is a hoax. Don't believe any of it. Phil is a troll. Go about your business. These aren't the droids you're looking for.

    Never been to a Gathering. I'm thinking I should change that. Looking forward to seeing the dates.

    I've already taken care of accommodations. As soon as I get the dates I'll book my flights.

    I think you will have fun. The members who attend Gatherings are a great bunch of people. We will save you a spot once the dates get set.

    Definitely penciling this one in for next year. I keep meaning to get to Utah so this would be a great way to do it.

    Staying tuned for dates - any definite ideas on locations? I have the potential to stay with relatives in both Park City and Logan.

    Cool, thanks!

    Just got back from my first trip to Utah. Amazing doesn't begin to cover it.

    Glad to hear of the location for next year, I can finally cash in some FF miles for it! Fair warning, I'm cursed for snow conditions, so if the snow sucks you can blame me! :doh:

    The dates YOU hear may be alternative facts.

    My only ask is that for the weekend warriors out there, can you please designate which weekend we should try to attend if the week covers more than one or straddles a week? This year's was listed as Sunday to Saturday which hurt my ability to attend, not knowing if more people would arrive early or stay late.

    Following, took the bait and grabbed a Mountain Collective pass for next year.

    @Dryheat -- Note: this is my maiden Gathering, so my impression may not be representative

    If the dates ran Sunday-Saturday, I'd choose the first one. Physical energy is higher, everything is new. Utah provides several mountains to choose from, though, so the schedule may influence your choice.

    I did Monday-Thursday at Alta and didn't have any crowds to deal with, even on Monday with 17" of powder falling. It was nice avoiding the weekend crowds
