How do I pay?

You pay online as you complete your registration. If you require a different method of payment, please contact [email protected].

Can I bring a guest?

Yes. Due to limited conference space, guest attendees are not permitted to attend the conference sessions, including keynotes, general sessions, breakout sessions, the expo hall, conference meals, and other organized conference activities. However, we highly encourage attendees to bring friends and family to enjoy the slopes and everything that the resort has to offer.

All cancellation requests must be received in writing. No refunds will be given after 12:00 A.M. MST on February 27, 2017. As Snowbird is prepared to handle any inclement weather, no weather-related cancellations will be accepted.


How do I reserve a room?

Register here or call 800-453-3000 and use code BAM418.

Are there special rates for the BambooHR Summit?

Yes, we have negotiated special room rates for Summit attendees ($156 single; $166 double), but space is limited, and we recommend you book as early as possible directly with Snowbird. Negotiated group rates are available to extend your stay up to two days before and two days after the conference. Please note that once our negotiated room block fills up, room rates will increase to their regular cost.

How do I cancel or change my room reservation?

You need to contact Snowbird directly to cancel or make any changes to a room reservation. You can reach them online at or call them directly at 800-453-3000. (NOTE: Snowbird has a 30-day cancellation policy. Any cancellations received by Snowbird within 30 days of the event will be charged for two nights.)

Where can I get more information about Snowbird?

Visit to learn more about their world-class accommodations and activities. Please note that some seasonal activities will not be available during the BambooHR Summit.


What is the weather like at Snowbird?

Weather in late April can vary from warm spring-like weather to heavy snow. We suggest that you check the weather forecast regularly and bring both winter and spring clothing options.

Which airport is closest to Snowbird?

Salt Lake International Airport is the closest to Snowbird (32 miles). Limited service through Allegiant Air is available in Ogden (60 miles) or Provo (44 miles). Prearranged ground transfers to Snowbird are available from Salt Lake, but they are not available from Provo or Ogden.

How do I arrange ground transportation from the airport to Snowbird?

From the Salt Lake International Airport, the easiest method is to sign up for airport transfers when you reserve your room with Snowbird. There are other services with desks at that airport, such as All Resorts. Prearranged ground transfers to Snowbird are not available from the Provo or Ogden airports. You can also rent a car, but you'll want to get a 4-wheel drive in case it snows. Please note that you will not need transportation within the resort.


What is the dress code?

We're pretty casual at Bamboo. Many attendees wear business casual attire, which is fine, but we strongly encourage all attendees to wear comfortable clothes (especially comfortable shoes). However, if you use the pool or hot tub, make sure to change before attending the conference.

What clothing should I bring?

Since Snowbird is one of the world’s premier winter resorts, we recommend you pack warm winter gear, including but not limited to a winter jacket, gloves, hats, scarves, sunblock, and winter boots. However, the event is during the springtime, so we recommend wearing layers in case it’s warm outside. The conference itself is in a comfortable hotel so bring your regular clothing. (Also, there’s a swimming pool and hot tub at the hotel so you may want to bring a swimming suit.)

Wondering when to book your flight and room?

The BambooHR Summit will begin first thing Wednesday morning (April 25) and will conclude at approximately 5 PM on Friday (April 27). More detailed agenda information will be released leading up to the event.

What if I want to arrive early or stay after the conference?

Our special group rate extends to two days before and two days after the event. Contact Snowbird directly, and make sure to tell them you're with BambooHR. Just be aware that if you stay too long, you will probably fall in love with the area and be forced to move there.

Will meals be provided?

Yes, all meals are provided from Wednesday morning through Friday’s lunch. See below for dietary requirements. And don’t worry, plenty of coffee will be available throughout the event.

What about dietary requirements?

You can make dietary requirements known on the registration form. If you have a dietary need not listed, please contact us at [email protected].

Who do I contact if I have questions?

If you have any questions not listed here, please contact us at [email protected].

Will I get to meet the panda?

Rumor has it he'll be there!
