10 Extraordinary Things to do During Winter in Colorado

it’s time to start shifting thoughts to all the extraordinary winter…

Association Meetings

Colorado’s central location, wide range of destinations and four seasons of fun make it an ideal location for associations to convene for conventions, meetings, educational sessions, trade shows and board retreats.

Business & Corporate Retreats

If a project is too complex to fit into a two-hour meeting, a corporate or executive retreat might be the best way to hammer things out. Whether launching a product or laying out a long-term strategic plan, Colorado is a place to slow down, think differently, and find creative inspiration.

Family Reunions & Retreats

Whatever the season, colorful Colorado makes planning a family gathering easy. From toddlers to great-grandparents, there’s something for everyone to plug into at camp-like venues, high-end settings and everything in between.

Government & Military Meetings

Colorado has a broad selection of properties and destinations that offer government and military rates and have sales teams skilled in developing contracts and convenient meeting packages with government and military planners in mind.

Health & Wellness Programs

Colorado is one of the fittest states in the country. It’s a way of life that can be built into meetings and events in a wide variety of ways. Schedule exercise and spa treatments, plan healthy cuisine, and make it easy for people to work out on their own during free time.

Ideas to Help You Increase Meeting Attendance

Is a meeting or event “shower-worthy” or not? It boils down to proving a gathering’s worth in terms of networking, education, experiences and being part of something bigger than sitting at home.

Incentive Programs

Offer an excursion that your team will talk about for years to come and view as worthy for top performance, loyalty, and willingness to go that extra mile. Colorado has an abundance of bucket-list activities and desirable destinations, from mountains towns to cities.

Outdoor Meeting & Events

With low humidity and an average of 300 days of sunshine annually, Colorado is all about the great outdoors. Savor a blue-sky après ski day with colleagues or book a food hall patio, Western Slope winery, sports stadium or attractive amphitheater.

Ranch Getaways

Guest ranches and ranch venues are great places to let time slow down for a few days (or several hours), so guests can unplug from daily schedules and the steady demands of technology. Soak in the aura of the West and choose from a menu of fun activities.

Sustainable Gatherings

Surrounded by abundant natural beauty and dedicated to an outdoorsy lifestyle, Coloradoans care about recycling, utilizing local foods and products, and tapping into alternative forms of transportation. It’s easy for groups to tap into this ethos that also is a top priority for venues.
