If you are planning a businesses meeting in Colorado, look no further than Creekside Chalets.

Taking employees out of their routine and into a different environment keeps the team focused and ready to contribute. Rather than holding together team loyalty and drive with t-shirts or swag, why not give your employees what they will value over all of these?  An experience. Bring your employees along for an adventure!

Salida is a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts.  It shares with Crested Butte the distinction of being the birthplace of mountain biking.  With such a wide variety of geological features, it is no wonder that many of the locals have been rock climbing almost as long as they have been able to walk.
