Here’s some destination inspiration for your next active group holiday.
There are many ski slopes in the world that will rent their facilities out to groups for 24 hours. Eagle Ridge in Utah is one and the price is surprisingly inexpensive. For roughly $10 000 USD you get the facilities of the entire resort including the condos that will sleep up to 200 people, chairlifts, runs, trails, and the entire park.
The only thing that is not included is the cost of food. The ski hill is roughly a four hour drive from Las Vegas.

If you can find a group of people that are willing to work on their endurance, cardio, and train for 90 days before the trip then this is a great option. There are 7 different routes to go up to the peak and you must hire a licensed guide to go with you.
You can also hire cooks that will provide all of your meals, and porters. There are various companies which you can use to help plan your Kilimanjaro climb, and they will accompany you on your journey to make sure you are safe and have an enjoyable time. The view from the peak is spectacular and it is well worth the effort. This is a great experience for a team to bond over that will create long lasting memories.
