Team-Building Experiences

In true Aspen fashion, let the outdoors be your next meeting site. Build camaraderie with fellow attendees on the slopes, in a forest or along the Roaring Fork River.

Tour the Untracked Backcountry

Approximately 10,000 vertical feet of ungroomed wilderness await on the backside of Aspen Mountain. Aspen Powder Tours guide 12-person skiing or snowboarding groups through untracked glades and runs spanning over 1,000 acres of open meadows. Untouched tracks, and an experience of a lifetime, are guaranteed. As you pause to refuel, satisfy your appetite with a gourmet lunch while cozying up in a wood-stove cabin tucked within the Elk Mountains. Terrain is selected based on daily snow conditions as well as the group’s experience level. Tours are available by reservation only.

Shredding the Competition

Skiers of all ages and abilities take to the NASTAR slopes, the National Standard Race, to compete for time against friends, colleagues and the U.S. Ski Team—regardless of when and where they race by using a handicap system. The largest public recreational grassroots ski-racing program in the world, designated NASTAR slopes are available on Snowmass or Aspen Mountain, where expert race aficionados track racers’ best times against the pacesetter’s time and handicap to establish record-breakers by age group.

Snowmobiling

Glide on snowmobiles along groomed trails between snowcapped trees and frozen crystal-blue waterfalls into the White River National Forest, to the base of the world-famous Maroon Bells or through a historic mining ghost town amid Colorado’s majestic high country. T-Lazy-7 guides you on geographically themed snowmobile tours varying in lengths and fit for all experience levels and group sizes. Warm up in the rustic Klondike cabin with hot cocoa, a grass-fed burger and a view of the 14,000-foot Pyramid Peak.

Blazing the Trail

Pioneering the whitewater outfitter community in Colorado since 1973, year-round outdoor adventures galore await with Blazing Adventures. Whitewater rafting, kayaking, SUP paddle-boarding and jeeping lead you to iconic Colorado views. Go for a scenic float or charge the waves during a whitewater rafting excursion along the Roaring Fork River, or reach top-of-the-world heights on a jeep tour through Aspen forests and alpine meadows. With over 100 trips to choose from, the local groups team is eager to assist in planning the perfect adventure, tailored specifically to your group.

The Height of Adventure

The Lost Forest leaves all possibility of adventure up to your imagination. Zip through the trees 40 feet in the air on the Canopy Run Zipline; get a grip and ascend a rugged climbing wall; drop 400-vertical-feet along turning track on the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster. Challenge-seekers are sure to leave with wondrous memories and achievements. Additionally, for those seeking adventure at ground level, there are fishing ponds, hiking trails along creeks and disc golf courses, to name a few.

Year-Round Itineraries

To inspire your meeting adventures, we have curated these year-round itineraries that promise to defy ordinary.

We invite you & your meeting attendees to own the Aspen zip code. Take over the coveted 81611 by staying across the resort and enjoying an array of experiences, all within walking distance.
