Team-building opportunities include scavenger hunts, cardboard boat races, field sports, croquet, badminton and bocce ball. Come winter the resort boasts its own ski-in/ski-out chair lift, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding and broom ball.
With all of the outdoor activities, special wellness offerings and healthy meeting options also are available. From integrating spa elements into a function, outdoor hikes and more, the team at Resort at Squaw Creek can develop custom packages for any type of function.
