Few types of meeting destinations embody inspiration quite like mountain destinations, and Vail Resorts Meetings & Events is the mountain meetings expert. With world-class mountain destinations in Colorado, Whistler, Park City, Lake Tahoe and Jackson Hole, Vail Resorts offers endless possibilities for incredible experiences.

1. Unique Meeting Space

From meetings in an authentic mountain lodge to breakout sessions in a gondola, meetings held at a Vail Resort won’t be your typical experience. Vail Resorts Meetings & Events offers nearly 300,000 combined square feet of unique meeting and event space to meet your needs in 10 mountain destination resorts across five locations. In Keystone, Colorado alone up to 2,000 attendees can meet in 100,000 square feet of traditional meeting space at the Keystone Conference Center, the largest conference site in the Colorado Rockies. Or if you’re looking for a more unique venue, look no further than the Keystone Stables. This authentic Country Western setting is designed to accommodate a variety of meeting needs while providing a space for unique activities such as sipping cocktails around the fire pit, (dummy) cattle roping, or meeting with an instructor for a barn dance. The Keystone Stables are the perfect spot for guests to experience a variety of western traditions set against a dramatic natural backdrop.

2. Experience of a Lifetime

Simply put, mountains make meetings memorable. From motivating teams, to celebrating success, mountain destinations offer attendees a chance to foster meaningful connections and check off an item on their bucket list. Opportunities to step outside the boardroom and gather are just a short walk away, making the planning process easy at mountain destinations. There are endless year-round indoor and outdoor opportunities for teambuilding and group activities including ziplining, golf, nature hikes, scenic gondola rides, skiing, mountaintop cat tours, tubing and dinner sleigh rides. Whether exploring in warm weather or cold, Vail Resorts Meetings & Events offers activities that make it easy to engage, inspire, and connect.

3. Unmatched Lodging

The signature properties at Vail Resorts provide a wide variety of lodging options to meet the needs of you and your group. Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Whistler, Park City, Keystone, Lake Tahoe, and Jackson Hole all offer a mix of hotel rooms, condos and private residences for groups to rent out, and are all conveniently located to the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities found in these mountain towns. Between the 10 resorts, groups of any size will feel comfortable. Whether you’re looking for an intimate destination such as Heavenly, California where 100 attendees can discover high-octane excitement with a fun breakout session in the High Sierras, or you’re in need of a larger space for up to 2,000 attendees that can be found in Keystone, Colorado or Whistler, British Columbia, Vail Resorts has it covered. With so many accommodation options, it’s easy to find the right spot for attendees to rest their heads at the end of the day.

4. Seamless Planning

When everything from lodging, to team-building activities to transportation is all manageable in one location, planning – even if you’re coming in from out of town – couldn’t be easier. Vail Resorts is there to help you plan successful meetings and events for groups of 10 to 2,000. Because of the wide variety of venues offered by Vail Resorts, programs can be seamlessly tailored to your specific needs whether that’s engaging with the environment, exploring mindfulness, involving adventure, developing leadership or whatever else you hope to accomplish with your meeting. A dedicated team will help you find the perfect destination to suit your goals and create an experience of a lifetime.

5. Epic Promise for a Zero Footprint

The land that originally held a Colorado Springs dairy farm and gambling casino in the late 1800s was transformed into The Broadmoor, one of Colorado’s most iconic luxury resorts, with the vision and guidance of founder Spencer Penrose. The resort’s doors opened to the world on June 29, 1918, and the rest is history.
