Summit Holds Leadership and Innovation Conference on Powder Mountain

Last weekend Summit hosted their annual BIG EVENT.  The Summit Series, this time called "Summit Outside".  Summit Outside was a massive event put on by a team who's goal  is to create a platform and a community that fosters collaboration and amplifies the positive impact of global leaders and innovators. Instead of renting a cruise ship for their guests, as they did in year's past, this year Summit outdid themselves this year by buying all the dirt underfoot before the bash... In fact, they bought the entire mountain.   Powder Mountain that is, all 7000 acres of it!

Summit Series Purchases Powder Mountain and Brings Entrepreneurship to the Ogden Area

It has recently been announced that Powder Mountain ski resort has been purchased by the Summit Series, a group of young and passionate entrepreneurs. 

The Forbes article describes the Summit Series' intentions for purchasing the ski resort, "The Summit group, co-founded by Elliott Bisnow , Brett Leve, Jeff Rosenthal and Jeremy Schwartz in 2008, plans to operate Powder Mountain, a long-time local-favorite, for the public just as it has been since the 1970s. The new twist will be a member-only lodge (under construction now) and an event center atop the mountain, and expanded access to adventure skiing and hiking terrain."

Techcrunch.com spoke with an investor, Tim Chang, who has worked with the Summit Series.  He speaks about the potential the group has to promote an entrepreneurial community in a ski resort surrounding. "'One of the best ways to really get to know somebody is to go outside the boardroom, go outside the pitch meeting, and get outside of just the conferences,' says Chang, who sees the new mountain village as a place to gather potential partners with an eclectic crowd for some secluded big thinking. 'The community portion — the networking, the people — that could be even more valuable than just the straight return on investment for a vacation property.'"

The Summit Series has already held several conferences and events at their temporary lodge in Ogden Valley, but are looking forward to making Powder Mountain their year round home.
