Based on tremendous group feedback from our 2023 event, and reputation for strong early-season snow, we’re heading back to the Tetons! For this event we will be switching up our lodging to be a bit more luxe; but still on budget.

Last year, our group hit its largest number of attendees and we’re expecting the same for 2025. As a result, we must require that each attendee is limited to one guest at all dinner events to keep the logistics manageable. Thanks!



We will enjoy luxurious slope-side accommodations at Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa located just a short stroll from the Tram Tower, the Gondola, and The Mangy Moose! Our room block provides for Lodge King, Lodge Queen, or Alpine Studio rooms at the rate of $599/night + taxes & fees*.


  1. The above room rate does not include a 13% state tax + 9% occupancy tax + $12 per room per stay porterage fee + $7 per room per night housekeeping fee.
  2. If you’re thinking about extending your stay, the above room block rates will be extended three (3) days pre & post the event dates of 1/11 – 1/15.

Our group rate above is guaranteed for reservations made by September 30, 2024.

Please make your reservations by this date.

Make Your Reservation

Please make your reservation by clicking the online reservation button* below, or by calling 855-757-7847 between the hours of 8am – 7pm Mountain Time and reference the John Carnevale Memorial Retirement Summit.

* The online reservation portal will default to a check-in date of Saturday, January 11 and check-out on Wednesday, January 15. Please make sure to change to your desired arrival and departure dates if different.


Plan your trip to fly directly into Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) which is well-served with many direct flights from major U.S. cities (American, Delta & United are best bets).


Ground Transportation

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is an easy and scenic 35-minute drive past the National Elk Refuge, into the town of Jackson, and then on to Teton Village.

You can simply grab a taxi – all vans or SUVs and all on a fixed rate – right outside baggage claim. No need to pre-plan.

Lift Tickets


Jackson Hole utilizes a reservation system and limits lift ticket sales to avoid crowding. It is critical that you purchase your lift tickets well in advance to avoid any issues.

I (Tom Makeever) will notify you when Jackson Hole opens online lift ticket sales.

Equipment Rental

Make your equipment rental reservation in advance to receive a discount via the Jackson Hole Resort website.

As you go through the reservation process, select Teton Village Sports (closest to hotel) as your preferred pick-up location (Jackson Hole Sports is an alternative located by the Gondola).


Dinner Events

In addition to enjoying each other’s company on the mountain, the purpose of this event is to network and share business ideas. After a day of energizing skiing or other activities, the perfect time to do this is over a relaxing and wonderful meal. We will be planning group dining events for each evening (Saturday – Tuesday) to maximize our time together. 

I will provide details as the event gets closer.


As stated above, each attendee is limited to one guest at all dinner events to keep the logistics manageable. Thanks!
