The 2020 meeting of the GSA Rocky Mountain Section will be hosted by the Department of Earth Science at Utah Valley University and held at the Utah Valley Convention Center in downtown Provo, Utah, USA. Provo Center Street, site of the Convention Center, is a pedestrian-friendly, four-block cluster of restaurants, shops, and bars. Provo is less than an hour from the Salt Lake City International Airport and has been ranked by Outside magazine as one of the best places to live in the United States. Downtown Provo is just a couple miles from the nearest Wasatch Range trailheads at Slate Canyon and Rock Canyon, and less than a 25-minute drive from the spectacular Sundance Mountain Resort. Provo is about 45 miles from the historic mining town of Park City and the high alpine resorts of Snowbird and Alta. You can combine your visit to the 2020 Rocky Mountain meeting with a spectacular vacation by setting out on a road trip to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks (just over three hours away), Zion National Park (about four hours), or Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (about five hours).
