Training & Retreats Located one hour southwest of Jackson Hole, the all-new Star Valley Lodge opened in December and is situated in an open valley bordered by two mountain ranges and within close proximity to the Salt and Snake Rivers. Surrounded by Bridger Teton National Forest, Star Valley Lodge offers a place for corporate training, reward excursions, product demonstrations, and leadership and team-building growth by combining the latest technical and learning support with customized outdoor experiences such as hiking, mountain biking, fishing, ATV riding, archery and target shooting. The property has a main lodge with six bedrooms and cigar bar and an adjacent lodge with four additional bedrooms. Dan Rees, Ph.D. professor emeritus serves as training director, bringing an extensive consulting and coaching background in leadership and organizational training. Stacy Robinson has been appointed general manager and Cindy Rowland as marketing/sales associate.

When you want to escape the lingering Texas heat for a few days in the fall, but you don’t really want to head north to more blustery conditions, Sonoma or Monterey, located northeast and south of San Francisco respectively, are fabulous options for short retreats or group getaways. And, lucky for you, if you live in or near Dallas, both destinations have direct flights from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, making your trip stress-free.
