As life slowly grinds its way back to normal, many of us are still sitting shell-shocked in our chairs, wondering if the past few months have been a real or just a very bad nightmare from which we are only now slowly awakening. When you own your own business, the changes can be slower yet, but during every step of the way there have been some notable people who have stood beside you even during the most confusing moments; those people, of course, are your employees, without whom you would not be where you are today! Essential in more ways than just the pandemic, this group has gotten up every morning and reported to duty to ensure that your business continues to be a success, and if you’re looking for ways to thank them for their steadfastness, a corporate retreat to Steamboat Springs and a stay in one of our Four Seasons Steamboat luxury escapes is about as close to perfect as you can get.
Shut Away the Fears at a Steamboat Corporate Retreat
We’re all still a little gun shy when it comes to germs right now, and we want you to know that we are as concerned with keeping you healthy as you are with staying healthy. We’ve updated our cleaning routines as proof. Each property won’t just be cleaned; it will be sanitized, disinfected, and clean enough to be used as an operating room, so shut away your fears and prepare for a healthy dose of fun, laughter, and excitement.
Practice those team building skills as your employees take turns prepping meals in our spacious and cheerful kitchens. Included appliances make it easy, and the camaraderie your employees share will make it fun! Dining areas with seating enough for everyone serve multiple purposes, allowing guests to chat over coffee, play board games (Monopoly NEVER gets old!) and of course, come together for the evening meal. Grills are included for those who are less than domestically inclined, but if you want to really treat your people, conducting an epicurean journey through the beauty of Steamboat can be a wonderful way to show you appreciate them!
In the living areas, state of the art televisions can be used for watching movies, playing video games, or watching the big game. Even if everyone supports different teams, you will all enjoy the time together as your group learns it’s okay to not always win! When the sun sets over the mountains, retreating to the haven of our cozy bedrooms can give your employees relaxation and privacy.
If you’ve owned your business for any amount of time, chances are you’ve read all the books about team building and know all the exercises, but sometimes the best way to build a great team is by spending a few days just playing! Take in a round of golf at Haymaker Golf Course and enjoy a few drinks at the 19th hole afterwards in the summer, hike to Fish Creek Falls in the fall, when the trees are ablaze with a fiery beauty, or ski down the slopes of Steamboat Ski Resort on a crisp and cold winter day. These are the stories your employees will talk about endlessly around the water cooler! If you really want to wow them, the Zephyr Helicopter Company offers tours of the countryside that will change the lives of everyone who gets the opportunity. The view of Steamboat Springs from the sky is absolutely incredible!
Free Time During the Day
Depending on how long you stay, letting the group break up and enjoy their separate interests is a great idea. Hiking and biking the mountains or participating in a little retail therapy in town is always fun! Pick up something sparkly from the Jewelry & Fossil Shop of Steamboat, something artistic and colorful from Steamboat Art Company, or something quirky and fun from the Steamboat Hat Shop. All three of these stores (and many more) are located within walking distance of each other on Lincoln Avenue. Dining options are numerous and include Winona’s Restaurant for those who love an incredible breakfast, or Laundry, a renovated laundromat that specializes in unique and fine dining.
Come Together for Fun at Night
When the sun sets over the mountains, the laughter and fun continue with hot tub moments and ghost stories told in front of a roaring fire. Nights in Steamboat can get chilly, but you and your essential employees will be basking the night away in warmth and comfort. Reserve your Four Seasons Steamboat corporate retreat today!
