Incredible Setting in All Seasons

When you mention “corporate retreat” to your staff, do their eyes glaze over? Changing the setting of your event can make the world of difference in getting your team excited and involved in your company’s retreat. With over 8,500 acres of authentic Western landscape nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, C Lazy U is the perfect backdrop for your team. If you’re worried that the great outdoors will be too distracting for productivity, think again – studies show that spending time outdoors can increase creativity and problem solving by a full 50%!

Colorado’s climate is as diverse as its terrain, with 300 days of sunshine per year and winters that deliver 300 inches of snow. No matter what season you visit, there are activities that take advantage of the state’s most famous attraction: the outdoors.

Seasonal Activities

In summer, you can fish the rivers, hike & bike the trails, shoot trap, throw hatchets, experience yoga with a view, drive cattle, and so much more. Take-in the stunning display of autumn leaves, and then when winter arrives, get ready to snowmobile, ice skate, snow tube, snowshoe, and explore Colorado’s 1,800 world-renowned ski runs.

Horseback Riding All Year-Round For All Levels

And because C Lazy U is an authentic Western dude ranch, horseback riding for all skill levels (with horses specifically paired to guest ability and personality) is available year-round – a unique and moving approach to team building that does away with uncomfortable icebreakers and hoaky trust exercises.

Corporate Meeting Spaces for Every Type of Team

It’s important for corporate meeting organizers to ensure attendees and guests at a company retreat don’t get bored, but serious business still requires serious meeting spaces. To compliment our 8,500 acres of land, C Lazy U has over 8,000 square feet of meeting spaces built to accommodate groups of all sizes. With wifi available throughout the property and audio/visual capabilities available upon request, your team can choose to either engage with technology or disconnect entirely, depending on your retreat’s goals. 

Easy to Access

One of the biggest gripes among employees attending corporate meetings or offsite retreats is the length of travel. Because Colorado is just about in the middle of the United States, it’s an ideal location for guests coming from all corners of the country, or for groups traveling together.

C Lazy U Ranch, located just 90 miles northwest of Denver, is accessible by Denver International Airport as well as two smaller non-commercial airports in Kremmling and Granby, merely a stone’s throw from the ranch. The drive to the ranch from Denver is so gorgeous and picturesque, it’s often worth the trip just for the sights!

Along with our other renowned ranch activities, C Lazy U has a host of options perfect for company fun and learning – options like zip lining, ropes courses, horsemanship, races, and friendly marksmanship competitions.

From the Horse's Mouth

We were immediately surrounded by pleasant young men. Smiling. Happy to help. Didn't seem hurried. Willing to talk about things around the ranch. I would love to watch your orientation process for new employees. It must be amazing. I cannot tell you how many times I was addressed in different areas by my name. How people I had never seen knew who I was and took care of things for me like managing my food allergy. Amazing.
