Lumière with Inspirato in partnership with Telluride Ski & Golf announced a new collection of small group experiences, the Forum Retreat Packages.

The experiences are specifically designed for members of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), a not-for-profit global network of young chief executives. The retreats are seasonally inspired to give groups a true taste of Telluride in both the winter and summer. As both a renowned ski resort and a summer festival capital, Telluride is appealing for organizations looking to incentivize prospective attendees.

The Forum Retreat Packages include accommodations for three nights at the newly renovated Lumière with Inspirato, culinary experiences at Telluride’s premier local restaurants, a private chef for breakfasts, massages at the award-winning Spa at The Peaks, and VIP black car transportation.

The seasonal packages also include custom VIP experiences for going out-on-the-town. Summer groups can explore the year-round adventure destination on a RZR tour, fishing tour, or guided Via Feratta experience. Winter groups will get access to early morning snowcat tours, first tracks experience with resort executives, and hand-picked private ski instruction. 

On Nov. 1, global hospitality group, Benchmark added Manor Vail Lodge to its Colorado portfolio. Established in 1965 and situated at the base of Vail Mountain’s Golden Peak, its location offers picturesque views, yet is within walking distance from the ski slopes, shops and restaurants, giving guests the perfect mix of fun and relaxation.

 

A wise ski instructor once said his favorite resort was the one with the most snow and the least people. When it comes to bringing a group up for the day from a nearby city or going all-in and planning an event in a ski resort’s base village, there are several mountains that fit that description across the West.

Tourism and skiing didn’t give birth to many of the West’s sweetest mountain towns. Instead, mining and early-day settlers were the drivers behind development that left behind character-filled downtown districts that are the community treasures of today. It’s important to note that sometimes downtown lodging properties don’t have enough guest rooms or function space to host groups, but options are typically available nearby (frequently ski resorts) for a win-win combination.
