83rd Annual Western Snow Conference

Grass Valley, California, April 20-23, 2015


Members and Friends of the Western Snow Conference,

Please join us April 20-23, 2015, for the 83rd annual Western Snow Conference in Grass Valley, California. Grass Valley is in the Sierra Nevada foothills and about an hour from the Sacramento Airport.

The 2015 conference will have a general theme of hydrologic forecasting and water management under drought conditions. The South Pacific Committee will compile a full agenda of oral and poster papers, a Monday short course, and a Thursday technical tour to explore historic water resource development in an area renowned for its gold mining and hydroelectric activity. Information will be posted on the WSC web page as it becomes available.

The conference will be held at the modern Gold Miners Inn, a Holiday Inn Express hotel. The hotel is downtown and within easy walking distance of restaurants, saloons, and a historic hotel. Brew pubs are in the neighboring town a short distance away. For accommodation information, please visit http://www.thegoldminersinn.com, or to reserve a room, call 530-477-1700 and specify the Western Snow Conference Group. Hotel rooms will meet federal per diem rate for Grass Valley, and although the specific rate has not yet been fixed, it is expected to be less than $97 per night plus taxes and fees, and includes breakfast and two happy hour drinks per day.
