    For those about to rock. 

BROOKLYN BOULDERS

FIRST ASCENT
First Ascent’s Block 37 location in the Loop is a popular spot for corporate team-building activities. So much so, in fact, that the facility has developed a series of intensive problem-solving programs that can be tailored to engage each group to improve communication, trust and leadership. 773.564.9815

VERTICAL ENDEAVORS
This location in Glendale Heights is one of the largest climbing wall facilities in the U.S., meaning plenty of space and options for groups. Crews can take private lessons, meet in breakout rooms, try out the New Heights teambuilding program or rent out a section of auto-belay machines after hours for a more independent experience. 630.784.9000

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.

 

To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
