The Lodge at Red River Ranch is a four-star western hotel with 15 suites and an impressive great room, sitting just below the red cliffs of Thousand Lake Mountain in southern Utah. Each participant will be provided with a private suite, complete with bedroom, bathroom, parlor, and fireplace. Upon arrival at Salt Lake City International Airport, participants are met by an Institute representative and escorted to a chartered plane where they embark on a 45-minute flight to the Wayne County Airport, just outside Torrey, Utah. At the conclusion of the symposium, participants fly back to Salt Lake City International Airport in time to make connections to all points.


Participants arrange for personal travel into Salt Lake City International Airport. Participants are transported to and from the Lodge at Red River Ranch in Torrey, Utah.
