Ralston among Mountain Travel Symposium speakers

The man who’s harrowing survival story included cutting off his own arm to escape a red rock canyon in Utah after a climbing accident, Aron Ralston, is one of the keynote presenters during the upcoming Mountain Travel Symposium at Beaver Creek held from April 3-9.

Ralston’s dramatic and inspirational story was recreated in the hit movie “127 Hours,” a film that garnered six Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and Best Screenplay.

The forum is the educational and training portion of the week-long symposium – now in its 36th year. This year’s forum theme is “Adaptation in Mountain Travel,” which has other notable names in the industry speaking and participating in panel discussions.

The symposium’s forum also includes small group workshops and presentations in several travel-related tracks that focus on how travel professionals can better adapt to the changes occurring in today’s economic environment.

Registration for the two-day forum is $595 and includes entrance to all three general sessions and a dozen individual workshops on issues ranging from resort branding to the newest developments in travel technology. The New Media Showcase is also included as well as lift tickets at Beaver Creek and admission to all symposium social events throughout the week.
