The Imagine That team spent last Saturday at our teambuilding event at Aspen Canyon Ranch. Teambuilding is vital for any company big or small. Getting to know your co workers outside of work and forming tight relationships allows you to improve your collaboration on team projects.
Here at Imagine That we value our team ethos very highly and can point to it as being the most important element to our continued success. This is in part down to teambuilding activities like last Saturday at Aspen Canyon Ranch.
The team met down at the Ranch early on a sunny Colorado morn. The Ranch is nestled between the Rockies about 26 miles from Silverthorne Colorado and is home to horseback riding, fly-fishing, ATVing, Skeet Shooting, Rafting and Hunting.
After a brief but hard fought Table Tennis battle between the Big Cheez and the Shamrock Kid (which Ireland won) we had our growth strategy meeting in the authentic Western Lodge to discuss our continued growth in the front range.
After the meeting concluded it was time to saddle up! The Imagine That team assembled at the stables to saddle their mounts for the winding mountain trail. Our excellent guide John led the team up a narrow winding trail through the forest and to the summit of the peak over looking the ranch.
The horses were very well trained although our Web Wizard Jeff Mcelhattan’s horse Ice had a strong temperament and didn’t like being passed! Jeff’s daughter Ivy was riding for the first time and was a natural falling in love with her placid mount named Kansas.
After trekking up mountains, through forests and forging rivers the Imagine That team were ravenous and we tucked in to delicious cheeseburgers and veggie burgers back down at the lodge.
After lunch it was time to ride something with slightly more “horsepower” (pun intended) with Polaris ATV’s being the vehicle of choice. Aspen Canyon have miles of trails stretching up through the mountain passes and it is an exhilarating experience to fly through the Colorado wilderness on their state of the art 4 wheelers. The guides at Aspen Canyon supplied us with wet gear and helmets and we set out to discover the Colorado back country in our ATV convoy. Yvette Wendy and Helena took to the ATVing instantly and were the most disappointed when the torrential downpour meant we had to turn back early!
The day was ended with a team dinner of Teppanyaki at the local Japanese restaurant. We would like to thank Ryan and the team at Aspen Canyon Ranch for the great hospitality and reiterate that everyone of the team had an amazing time!
