Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa, a Noble House resort located in the heart of the American West, has created a new all-inclusive group retreat program allowing attendees to experience an action-packed, motivational, and customized four-day trip in western Colorado.

After being transported to the property in the resort’s fleet of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans, guests can enjoy a welcome reception with hors d’oeuvres, live-action stations, and an open bar at the Gateway Canyons Auto Museum, which features a collection of more than 50 luxury cars. Day two can include a guided nature hike and a make-your-own team-building course including hatchet-throwing, archery, and corn hole. Attendees can also enjoy class lawn games such as giant Jenga, yard pong, ladder toss and bocce ball. The day concludes with a customized four-course dinner in one of the resort’s spacious venues, including the Mission Bell Amphitheatre, Cottonwood Terrace, or the indoor ballroom at the Palisade Event Center.

Taking advantage of the property’s location among the red rock canyons, day three of the retreat starts with a sunrise group yoga session followed by free time to enjoy a wide variety of activities such as helicopter tours, UTV rides, horseback riding at the Palisade Ranch and jeep tours. Guests can then explore the Gateway Canyons Auto Museum further and enjoy the resort’s amenities including its three swimming pools, hiking, mountain biking, and full-service spa with rejuvenating treatments. As a finale, the resort hosts a Red Cliffs experience taking place in the property’s private canyon with stunning sunset views, dinner, musical entertainment and more.

Two years ago, the Colorado Meetings + Events Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards was held at The Hangar at Stanley, a brand new venue in Stanley Marketplace, a cool new market hall that brought life back to the former Stanley Aviation factory after it sat empty for many years. It was a signal that things big things were happening in Aurora to host a broader and larger range of meetings and events and to up the ante for leisure guests as well.

 

There is a flurry of new and upcoming venues that have been announced in the Denver metropolitan area, Longmont and Fort Collins that are worthy of mention because they are distinct. There isn’t a cookie-cutter, you’ll-find-it-elsewhere space in the bunch!

 

Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976.
