Housing accommodations are now available for WCBR 2023. 

The WCBR Room Block at Snowbird resort is now full. Should cancellations occur and rooms become available, they will appear within the online booking link. At this time, WCBR recommends reserving accommodations at one of the following off-mountain options. Designated blocks are not established at these recommended overflow hotels, so general reservations should be made. Please note that these hotels are approximately 20 minutes from Snowbird Resort.

Residence Inn Salt Lake City Cottonwood
Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Cottonwood

Transportation will be provided in the morning and late evenings to and from Snowbird Resort and the hotels listed above (Residence Inn and Hyatt Place). Ski bus service through UTA is available for attendee trips during the day. Final designated WCBR transportation times are still in determination, but will provide transportation early and late enough for full conference attendance with no charge to the attendee. If you are staying off-mountain and are seeking accommodations at locations other than the Hyatt Place and Residence Inn, please email info@winterbrain.org and identify your stay location. WCBR will work to arrange pickups at nearby hotels wherever possible, but they are not guaranteed at this time.
