Colorado Review of Anesthesia for Surgicenters & Hospitals (CRASH)

February 27 - March 3, 2022 

CRASH To Be Virtual Format


Due to the current environment with the COVID omicron variant and after some difficult discussions, the University of Colorado Department of Anesthesiology has decided to pivot the 2022 CRASH Conference, scheduled February 27-March 3, to a virtual format. We have been working diligently to determine a plan to implement onsite to keep all attendees safe, but given this highly contagious variant, we just don’t feel that moving forward with an in-person event at The Hythe (formerly the Vail Marriott) is in the best interest of our attendees, staff and faculty, hotel staff and the Town of Vail.  

We understand that this is disappointing news but do plan to still provide you all with top notch presentations and the ability to earn CME credits virtually.  

More information will be coming within the next few days about the virtual registration fee, and CME credits available to earn.  

Regarding lift tickets, if you purchased an EPIC pass that is nonrefundable but can be used at all Vail Resorts across the country through the end of the ski season. Check with your local resort to find out their specific end date. If you purchased just lift tickets, those are refundable and you can contact Gloria at at 800.837-0155 to receive a refund.  

Your hotel reservation at The Hythe will be cancelled to ensure you won’t have to pay any kind of cancellation penalty.  If you decide that you would still like to travel to Vail and keep your reservation (still at our group rate), please use this link to re-book: You should wait to receive a cancellation email for your old reservation before you rebook. 

If you made reservations at either Lions Square Lodge or Montaneros, please contact them directly to cancel your reservation before 30 days of your arrival date.    

We appreciate your understanding and wish you all the best over the coming year.  Stay safe, stay well and thank you for everything you do on a daily basis for your patients and your communities.  




CRASH is a week-long anesthesia conference starting Sunday evening and ending Thursday evening. We have lectures in the morning and workshops or panels in the afternoons. We bring in top speakers from all throughout North America as well as using many of our own nationally renowned faculty. There are workshops to choose from including ultrasound and difficult airway management. In addition, we have specialized panels that cover a wide variety of topics. CRASH typically hosts over 250 physicians, nurse anesthetists, anesthesiology assistants, residents, and other health care providers, representing many countries as well as the USA. Over fifty percent of our participants return each year to gain the valuable knowledge offered at this conference!iStock-1173788698 2022 postcard pic
