Low Carb Vail 2016 – The low-carb event of the winter


It’s been nine full months since most low-carb experts in the world gathered in Cape Town for the inaugural LCHF conference. Hopefully there’ll be a follow-up conference in London soon, but nothing is definitive yet.

Luckily another event has suddenly exploded onto the scene. Suddenly everyone seems to be headed to Vail, Colorado.

From Friday, 26 February 2016 to Sunday 28 February you’ll be able to meet and listen to presentations from a highly impressive group of low-carb experts, at the Lion Square Lodge in Vail. As a bonus four hours during the middle of every day is unscheduled, making it possible to enjoy some of the best snow sports in North America.

I’m not a skier but I’ll be there with a few coworkers to present, report and interview people. Perhaps I’ll put on skis at some point and provide some entertainment for the other guests.

Tickets for the event are $154 per person + travel and living expenses. If you want to go I’d suggest picking up a ticket quickly because space is quite limited and this impressive event could sell out quickly.

  1. Andreas, looking forward to seeing you, Simon and the rest of the media crew in Vail. It's going to be an fun and informative.

    For those who missed the Cape Town LCHF conference, this will be the next best thing in 2016. Socializing, networking and spending quality time with others is what these conferences are all about.

    Hope to see everyone there!

    I'd like to know why these conferences continue to invite Mr Jimmy Moore who is clearly struggling to keep his weight down with keto and paleo lifestyle - is this not counterproductive of the message being spread here? Not judging but look at his picture on his website. All the talks he makes standing clearly show a fellow with a rather big waistline. Would be interested in knowing if he is facing any challenges on LCHF and what he is doing to overcome them, maybe that can help other people too facing the stubborn waistline especially those that are diabetic.

    Thank you in advance for clarifying.

    I live near Denver and was soooooo excited to see this conference coming to Vail! And the conference seems fun and full of great information. ! I've been doing LCHF under my drs. supervision and find it AMAZING! Being 60 I never dreamed I could find something where I don't fixate on food. How I feel is so dramatic as well! I keep repeating, "This is forever." And I'm still surprised that for the first time, I feel like it is a forever change.

    But when I looked into the hotels in the area in February I was priced out of the event. Even in nearby towns. The height of the ski season just doesn't make it an option. :( Just a thought for next time.

    So just like the guy above, I am super excited about this conference in Vail. I've been following Jimmy Moore and several of the doctors that he has interviewed for 10 + years now. I was so excited that I actually purchased tickets for the conference before getting lodging. I'm a school teacher, so probably can't afford the expensive prices up there during the ski season. I'm hoping to find people with similar interests that know of a place we could share for a reasonable price. I'm also interested in getting together with a group of people after the conference that might be interested in long-term fasting with me. Maybe a five or six day stay in a sweet lodge up in the mountains with some fellow fasters would help me stick to it!!! :-)

    Doctor, are you going to offer the taped presentations for purchase after the event for those of us who can't attend?? Low Carb South Africa 2015 offered same. Thanks.

    I think they'll be available, if not here then on the Low Carb Down Under page. Some will be here.

    Can't miss this exciting event. We'll be there!

    I'm from Colorado Springs and new to LCHF; just started 11/2016. So excited when I found out about this conference. Lodging is a huge problem, so I'm probably not going to be able to go.

    You can stay in Eagle, Colorado which Is about 35 minutes west of Vail on the I-70 Interstate at about 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of staying in Vail. The Comfort Inn in Eagle is only about $150 per night with AAA discount.
