Destination meetings or retreats often provide a great bonding experience for your team. Bringing them out of their element to discover the magic Steamboat Springs is a great way to bring people together.
First, determine a time of year as every season has its perks. Schedule time for hiking and biking in the summertime will help to break up your days or check out the wide range of activities beyond skiing to satisfy your winter retreats. Take advantage of the offseason pricing, lodging discounts, and dining deals in the spring or fall.
Next, find a venue. The size of your group will determine the location for your retreat. Larger groups should opt for the ease of staying at the Steamboat Grand, offering multiple options for meeting rooms of varying sizes to accommodate conference space and break out-groups. Smaller groups can consider the Holiday Inn and the Lodge at Steamboat, both of which have meeting space, or renting a large home from Moving Mountains or Pioneer Ridge.
If you are based at the Steamboat Grand, consider having your group dinners in one of the banquet halls, or choose from one of the excellent dining options on the mountain for a more unique experience. Smaller groups have the luxury of choosing from a wide variety of establishments all over town.
Each season has a great selection of team building activities. For thrill-seeking excursions, you can check out the amazing biking, skiing, or rock climbing. Alternatively, for a more of a relaxing retreat, pamper your team at one of the many spas, enjoy a soak at the local hot springs, or indulge in the shopping and art galleries downtown.
Regardless of the size or industry of your group, Steamboat Springs is a great place to make your meeting feel more like a vacation. The endless list of activities and options make Steamboat a perfect fit for everyone in your group.
