Family Reunions


This is an amazing place in the Colorado mountains to have your family reunion. It is a safe environment, where we take care of all the details. Our staff can help you custom design a multi-day gathering, according to your individual interests. Your days can include leisurely hikes led by guides specializing in birding, geology, and botany, with a sack lunch in the field. Alternately, some members of your family may choose more adventure-based activities: hike one of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks, go rock climbing and mountain biking, or ride the zip line! And, there is fishing in the area. Many enjoy an evening trip to our observatory to explore the night sky through one of the state's largest telescopes. There is also plenty of space for relaxing and enjoying the incredible nature that the Colorado Rockies offer, as well as time to socialize with family, or read a book in an aspen grove. The choice is yours!
