2019 SheLift Summit

Aug 30th - Sept 2nd


Join SheLift this Labor Day for an unforgettable weekend in the Mountains of Park City, Utah.


What to expect:

In partnership with the National Ability Center in Park City, Utah, SheLift women, young girls and moms are invited to come connect, share and cultivate confidence through group activities, workshops and story telling. This weekend retreat includes lodging, activities, breakfasts, a welcome reception and pizza party!

Who should attend?


This event is designed for all SheLift women, girls and moms.

SheLift alumna & their moms or new faces entirely!

Most activities suitable for kids 8+ years old.

Kids younger than 8 and their moms are still encouraged to come!

*Based on registration, accommodating activities will be arranged for younger participants and their moms.



For 3 nights we will be staying at The National Ability Center / Bronfman Family Ranch Recreation & Education Center

The lodge will be our home base for most activities and gatherings. This is a private, two-story facility and includes 25 double occupancy rooms with private baths. SheLift will have the entire property to ourselves!

The building features a lobby and common gathering area as well as a kitchen and dining area. In 1996 an anonymous donor provided the National Ability Center with 26-acres of pristine land minutes from three world-class ski resorts and Main Street in Park City. As the culmination of the founders’ life-long vision, the National Ability Center is a place where there are no boundaries — a place for self-discovery, and a place where everyone can challenge their abilities to achieve their personal best.
