Blue Mountain Altitude Challenge

At Summit Team Building we believe that we all learn best when we are outside of our comfort zones. This space is called the learning zone and is when we are engaged, open, inquisitive, and able to expand personal skills and to learn new things. Based on this belief we have created many different team building programs to get people out of their comfort zones and into their learning zones. At Blue Mountain Resort we have access to an amazing natural environment that makes a perfect learning space. As such we have created many great team building programs that take advantage of this natural classroom and this is precisely why you might choose Blue Mountain in the first place. We have our 7 Summits Challenge, our Reaching New Heights, and our Blue Mountain Adventure Quest team building programs and new for 2018 is the Altitude Challenge. This program will challenge your team to climb ‘Mount Everest’ represented by Blue Mountain. After a short introduction on the logistics of how to climb Mount Everest based on Summit President Scott Kress’ personal climb of Mount Everest your team will set out up the mountain. Along the way they will encounter various team challenges that have been custom designed for your group. These challenges will require teamwork, communication, creativity, and more. This is a challenging up hill program. You will sweat and you may even get a little dirty. In the end you will be excited by the accomplishment and rewarded with an amazing view of Georgian Bay from the top of the Niagara Escarpment. Our professional facilitators will help your team...

Together Summit and Blue Mountain designed a FAM that was fun, engaging and educational. 26 participants arrived on the Thursday for a beautiful reception and dinner in the village Conference Centre Atrium. This beautiful space with massive windows and a comfortable patio was set with stunning table décor and the locally inspired meal was tasty and unique. After dinner the group retired to the Silver Creek Room for desert and to be entertained by Scott Kress and his Learning in Thin Air Keynote. This gripping presentation motivated the group for an early morning hike up Blue Mountain the next morning. Setting off at 6:30 am the group hiked the Village Way trail winding through the beautiful forested hills of Blue Mountain to the top of the Niagara Escarpment. A fun and unexpected surprise was to meet over 300 participants of the annual meeting of the fitness group November Project. They welcomed us into their group as we all walked back...
