New Gondola Transportation at Glenwood Springs Attraction

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has introduced its newest feature, the Glenwood Gondola that replaces the Iron Mountain Tramway that opened in 2003. The gondola features 44 detachable cabins that move continuously, so the ride is faster and smoother and less sus - ceptible to weather-related closures. The mountaintop theme park in Glenwood Springs was closed for several months during the gondola construction so the grand reopening was a kickoff for a full slate of summer events, including the attraction’s 20th anniversary celebration and 15 Music on the Mountain concerts, which run through early fall. To thank the community for its patience while the park was closed, free annual gondola passes were offered to residents from Basalt to Glenwood and from Eagle to Parachute. More than 17,000 people signed up!

Steamboat Springs Adds Homewood Suites

With 84 suites, the new Homewood Suites by Hilton Steamboat Springs brings more extended stay options to the popular hiking and skiing destina - tion. Developed and owned by Gray Stone LLC and managed by K Partners Hospitality USA, the property offers a combination of studio, one- and two-bedroom accommodations that are handy for groups and feature fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas. Additional amenities include a heated indoor pool, game room and fitness center.

Whether it’s the sheen of the snow-covered mountain slope in the background or the lush forest surrounding a two-story, floor-to-ceiling window spread, art is simply more sublime in mountain towns.

Napa Valley’s Meritage Resort & Spa recently debuted a new program designed to help groups gathering at the resort achieve more “Mindful Meetings.” The program, offered in partnership with Bare Health, can be custom tailored for groups and includes the following wellness-focused activities: meditation, yoga in the vineyard, sound healing, and the creation of juices, smoothies and morning elixirs at the resort’s brand-new Food & Wine Center.

 

After continually hearing that meeting planners were looking to infuse more health, wellness and sustainability into their agendas, Hilton Hotels & Resorts created Meet with Purpose in 2015. As it has evolved, the turnkey program—and its focus on Mindful Eating, Mindful Meeting and Mindful Being—has been increasingly customized to reflect each hotel and each meeting.
