As Course Director of the Colorado Review of Anesthesia, Surgi-centers, and Hospitals (CRASH), the decision to hold an in-person conference in 2022 has been made with your health and safety as a top priority.
For the 2022 conference, the University of Colorado is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival at the conference. More detailed information will be provided in the coming weeks and months about the process.
This will be a terrific opportunity to attend CRASH since our meeting in 2020, and an extraordinary opportunity to reconnect personally and professionally with colleagues and friends. This conference will offer not-to-be-missed educational sessions that
will renew, update, and expand your knowledge of clinical practice, new procedures and techniques in all subspecialty areas.
The CRASH Planning Committee has made significant enhancements to the 2022 conference in order to improve, add value, and advance our specialty in 2022 and beyond. For more information, see the Program & Accreditation page of this website. We look forward to connecting with you in Vail.
Please be assured that we’ll continue to monitor the COVID pandemic situation closely and provide updated information to all registrants as it becomes available.

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!
The CRASH conference, located at the Vail Marriott at Lionshead Village, is family-friendly and enables attendees to obtain the most CME while still enjoying a plethora of outdoor activities within walking distance to the Gondola Ski Lift, very competitive room rates, and group rates on lift tickets.
Most mountain conferences have lectures in the morning and afternoon and not much else to offer. We offer lots of options for several reasons:
