68th Annual Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Institute

July 21-23, 2022 | Vail, Colorado

Join us for our first in-person Annual Institute since 2019! Remember how much you enjoyed Monterey three years ago? Come to Colorado for a similar experience in the high mountains!

Vail in the summer is a stunningly beautiful alpine setting, with amazing weather for wildflower hikes, backpacking, cycling and mountain biking, tubing and whitewater rafting, canoeing, high-elevation golf, gondola rides, nature walks, jeep tours, and so much more. Shopping and restaurants abound, along with some of the top spas in the Rocky Mountain region. And the entire family can enjoy Epic Discovery at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, with adventure courses, ziplines, a mountain coaster, tubing hills, a climbing wall, bungee trampoline, and other options.

The Annual Institute will open with a General Session on Thursday morning. That afternoon and for the remainder of the conference, attendees can choose among various sessions, which will include Oil & Gas and Landman’s, Mining, Renewable Energy and Electricity, Public Lands and Indian Law, Water, Environmental, Corporate Counsel, and International. We are planning for a blow-out hosted reception on Thursday night, along with a Young Professionals event, an In-House Counsel event, and a babysitting option on Friday night if you want to get away and enjoy the town or separate private events. We are also planning to hold a number of specialized lunches.

We expect to open registration in late February or early March. In the meantime, reserve your rooms as soon as possible! We negotiated highly discounted room prices five years ago, and since then, hotel rates in Vail have skyrocketed. In fact, our headquarters hotel, the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort, recently finished a $40 million renovation and reopened as The Hythe, a Luxury Collection Resort by Marriott. We have a wide variety of accommodations throughout Vail available at the best prices possible. 

We look forward to seeing you next summer for an excellent Annual Institute!
