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 susceptible 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 destination. 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.

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.
