As snow returns to Colorado’s high country and anticipation of the upcoming winter season becomes evident among locals, there are some fun announcements of interest for groups from mountain towns and those surrounded by mountains. These are just a few of the many new highlights shared by our friends at the Colorado Tourism Office.

The Osprey at Beaver Creek is offering three new snowshoe adventures—Winter Wine Excursions, Fondue + Shoe and Women’s Walk + Wine—that combine a fun outing with gourmet après snowshoe after the exercise is over.

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park has added a new “Illusions of the Passed” theatrical séance, led by in-house illusionist Aidan Sinclair, who was featured on America’s Got Talent. The historic hotel also partners with REI Adventures to offer a special Outdoor School series such as campfire cooking and survival courses.

Five hot springs destinations in the western part of Colorado—Chaffee County, Pagosa Springs, Ouray County, Glenwood Springs and Steamboat Springs—have formed the Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop with 19 unique facilities. Each of these communities has a ski resort in town or nearby.

The new Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience in Cañon City features a collection of interactive displays, full-scale dinosaur fossils and a multi-story ropes course.

Tahoe-based Basecamp Hotels has brought a totally new approach and look to Boulder's former Quality Inn Boulder Creek with 50 mountain-themed rooms, including a suite with green turf, a mural of Boulder’s Flatiron Mountains and four sunken twin beds. Basecamp Boulder also features an indoor climbing wall, deck with fire pit complete with make-your-own-s'mores kits and a lounge for groups to gather.

Get your base and outer layers, sporting gear and adventurous spirits ready for a fabulous Colorado winter.

Colorado Springs was named one of the top 10 emerging destinations in the world by Tripadvisor in 2021—and for good reason. It is hard to find a community in Colorado (let alone in the United States) that has launched more major projects since the start of this decade.

City for Champions

 

It’s that time of year when groups are readying plans for holiday events, and employers are looking at how to celebrate their teams. In the fall 2022 issue of Colorado Meetings + Events, we looked at the state of holiday gatherings and found that they indeed are on the rebound. Some gatherings are going big after two years of not getting together or generally scaling back, while others are opting for in-office parties, small dinners, or community service projects. 

 

Uncharted Society works with outfitters across the globe to give groups and individuals the opportunity to try motorsports on BRP-certified vehicles. Teams can bond in some of the nation’s most beautiful spots on a wide range of nature tours offered on land, snow, and sea. Check out these three examples from Colorado and Utah.
