Mountain Milonga Retreat 2017

Mark your calendars for the famous Mountain Milonga Retreat:

Jul 14-17 2017, at Brighton Ski Resort, Utah.

Registration for the "alumni" is open. General registration begins on Wednesday April 19, 2017 at 10 pm MST

The plan:

9 milongas * live music * 7 classes * music jam
all meals provided * grand asado night
outdoor adventures * massages * body/mind

bunk-in tango dorms * tango chalets

Join us for a unique tango adventure in a rustic ski lodge up in Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range (only 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport).

Mountain Milonga, held at 9,000 ft elevation in the historic 1929 Wasatch Mountain Club Lodge, started out 15 years ago as a signature summer celebration of the local tango community. Great floor, great vibe, and mindblowing asado. Over the years, the “M2”, as it is affectionately known,  grew into a 3-day retreat combining a good deal of a tango marathon, a bit of a workshop, and a lot of a communion of tango friends.

In recent years, Mountain Milonga Retreats hosted nearly 100 tangueros from all over the US and Canada, coast to coast. It has become so popular that the 2016 passes sold out in just 3 days. The plans are even bolder for 2017. To overcome the immense logistical challenges, the 2017 "M2" stars a new, uniquely experienced organizer-in-chief, Jesica Cutler from Colorado.

Please stay tuned as we update you on the cast and the schedule, and please let us know if you are interested in becoming a part-time volunteer. Please like our brand-new Facebook page. Don't forget to study our Frequently Asked Questions and Maps page.
