Wyoming’s Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole has introduced the results of a major renovation in time for summer season. All suites, guest rooms and public hallways have been fully refreshed utilizing subtle colors and earth elements such as woods and metals. 

The room and suite renovations include all new vanities and mirrors, furniture, artwork, beds, lighting, wall coverings, carpet, and private bars. Those working while on the road are sure to be pleased by the fact that there are well-defined work areas within accommodations and top-of-the-line new technology for both communication and entertainment. The latest renovations complement enhancements made to the on-site Westbank Grill and Ascent Lounge in recent years.

Groups also can book the 10,900 square feet of meeting and event space at the property—with the largest being a 3,860-square-foot ballroom—and tap into all sorts of great mountain experiences that can be organized by the Four Seasons. 

In Colorado, The Pad is offering a new type of lodging and meeting property in the form of a boutique hotel/hostel partially built from 18 upcycled shipping containers and with a prime location on the Blue River in Silverthorne. Not familiar with Silverthorne? It’s the gateway to several ski towns in Summit County like Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone and is becoming a destination for groups with the addition of new venues like The Pad and the recently opened Bluebird Market nearby. 

The Pad features 36 rooms (both shared and private with a total of 101 beds), 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space, and Silverthorne’s first riverside and rooftop bar. A-BAR serves up munchies, craft cocktails, and selection of local craft brews, wine and kombucha from 26 taps.

Looking for something a little different to plug your group into and a venue they will be talking about long after a gathering concludes? Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the winter home and laboratory of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, might be the solution with its Sunsets and Sips and Wellness Series

 

Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”

 

For someone who cringes at simply popping a cork on bubbly, sabering offers an alternative, as long as skillfully hefting a heavy sword is doable. It’s certainly impressive enough to watch, but how does someone add this skill to their repertoire?
