The first conference was held in 1978 at Ski Butternut in Great Barrington, MA, organized by Dave Kenny, who worked for the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety.  The lift maintenance seminars have trained countless numbers of lift maintenance personnel, offering a wide variety of training sessions over the years.  Seminars over the past several years have expanded to include several tracks on snowmaking and grooming.  Over 300 attendees from over 80 ski areas and companies attend the seminar each year, which is now held in Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, Massachusetts.
