About 45 meeting planners are in Salt Lake City to become familiar with Utah's convention and meeting facilities and at the same time take some runs on the ski slopes.

Richard E. Davis, president of the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the 1991 Krisam Ski Fam is an annual event that brings carefully selected planners together for skiing and site inspection with the hope they will choose Salt Lake City to hold their conventions and meetings.They represent MasterCard International, Electronics Industries Association, National American Wholesale Grocers Association, National Association of Manufacturers, National Sheriffs Association and the Society of American Florists.

Salt Lake hotels hosting the visitors are the Doubletree, Marriott, Red Lion and University Park. They have been skiing at Snowbird, Deer Valley, Park City and Alta with equipment provided by Utah Ski Rental and the Sportstalker.
