Please join us for the 40th Midwinter Symposium on Practical Challenges in Otolaryngology. This premier meeting, the first otolaryngology meeting of its type, consistently draws an enthusiastic audience, both nationally and internationally.
Each year’s meeting is designed to reflect current, state-of-the-art, practical information on the management of problems in major areas in the specialty of otolaryngology. Individual presentations are always open to interactive questions and discussions.
We look forward to welcoming back those of you who join us in Snowmass each year, and welcoming those who will be new attendees in 2016. An exceptional faculty, program, and conference venue awaits—we hope you won’t miss it!

Located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, approximately 220 miles west of Denver, Snowmass Village is only five miles from the Aspen Airport (ASE), nine miles from Aspen, and 68 miles from the Eagle County Airport (EGE). Flights from across the country fly into both airports.
Snowmass is one of the largest and finest ski resorts in North America. Designed as a ski-in, ski-out resort, most of the accommodations in Snowmass are slopeside and nearly everything is within easy walking distance. A total resort, Snowmass offers miles of cross-country ski trails; heated outdoor swimming pools; sleigh, dog sled, and hot air balloon rides; and child care centers.
One Lift Ticket, Four Mountains
Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk combined offer 5,547 acres of world class skiing, all accessible with a single lift ticket. With twenty-one lifts providing access to over 3,362 acres of ski terrain, Snowmass offers a variety of slopes to challenge every level of skier and snowboarder — cruisers, steeps, glades, off-piste, terrain parks, superpipe and the longest lift-served vertical rise in the United States. Long, groomed intermediate runs offer unparalleled cruising, while experts can experience back-country terrain. Click here to view trail maps.
