We invite you to the 30th annual Steamboat Weather Summit, the longest-running mountain meteorological symposium in the ski industry. This unique conference brings together weather specialists and meteorologists from around the country to spend a week in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to discuss the latest industry issues and trends while broadcasting live and creating stories for their viewing audiences back home.

Each year, a select group of meteorologists from the top television markets in the country are invited to join us in Steamboat to learn more about the meteorology field and trending issues that interest their broadcast audiences. Designed as a hands-on and interactive exchange of information, ideas and experiences for broadcast meteorologists, the Steamboat Weather Summit has gained a national reputation for excellence over the years. Conference sessions are held each day with additional time allowed for feature production, live shots and, of course, powder research. The Steamboat Weather Summit is eligible for AMS points.
