This Year's Event

Lodging

We'll be renting the same incredible house we've had the past 2 years, with breathtaking views of Sugarbush Mountain and just a one minute drive from the hill.


Schedule

  1. Monday: Arrive, settle in, chat, order a round of pizzas, chat some more and get ready for an amazing few days ahead!
  2. Tuesday: Hit the slopes early morning and ride. Lunch at the hill. Maybe a few more runs. Afternoon attendee talks & sessions. Ordering in.
  3. Wednesday: Another morning of ski/snowboarding and lunch at the hill. Afternoon talks & sessions back at the house. Dinner out in the village.
  4. Thursday: We depart. And mark our calendars for this time next year.

Attendee Talks

We encourage every attendee to prepare a short talk (15-20 mins). Nothing fancy. Just share some knowledge with the group.

No topic is off limits, but here are some general themes:

We’ll also have strategy sessions (a.k.a. mastermind sessions) where you can share some goals or challenges and get feedback and advice from the group.

FAQ

Who is this for exactly?

If you’re a prior MicroConf attendee and you like that vibe, we’re like a mini version of that but with skiing/snowboarding. We love to hang with founders who have products with revenue or productized consulting working towards something different. We love to exchange ideas with other active entrepreneurs and learn tricks that others have discovered. If that sounds like you, this is a good fit.

Will I get my own bed and my own room?

Everyone will be guaranteed their own bed. Some rooms are single beds, some multiple beds, so some of us will share a room. Rooms/beds will be assigned before arrival.

What if I can’t make it at the last minute?

We’d be totally bummed. Our refund policy works like this: If you cancel anytime between now and the conference, as long as we find a replacement for your slot, you’ll get a refund. If you cancel at the last minute due to a flight cancellation, you’ll get a refund or a partial refund, as long as funds are available after the trip is over.

How can we meet and network before and after the trip?

All attendees will be invited to join our Slack chat. That's where we can post intros and other messages before, during, and after the event. We'll send you your invite once you're registered and paid up.

Can we arrange carpools from the airport or from elsewhere?

We do encourage this. The attendees list below indicates where people are traveling from. Feel free to reach out to individuals on Slack or to us at bigsnowtinyconf@gmail.com to coordinate a ride share.

What kind of ski/snowboarding skills do I need?

We're all at different levels and we all ride at our own pace. To our knowledge, there aren't any complete beginners, but no olympians here either :)

Should I pack my own food?

Only if you want. We'll be doing a large grocery run to stock the house with breakfast, snacks, drinks (alcoholic & non-alcoholic). All of this included with your registration fee as is the pizza dinner on Monday night and the take-out order Tuesday night. But if you want to bring your own stuff, you're welcome to do so.
