This year for an incentive trip for a confidential cosmetics company, we designed a trip program that showed off all that the state of New York had to offer. This trip was a blend of the beautiful countryside skiing mixed with the excitement and glamour of the Big Apple.
On the first day, we stopped in bustling Manhattan for a scavenger hunt complete with a stop to one of their stores. Lots of photos throughout the city and stops at the landmark sites made this day a lot of fun. At the end of the day it was time to head to the country and we loaded up the coaches and headed to Mohonk Mountain House. If you’ve never been there, you’ll want to take a peek at www.mohonk.com It is a hidden treasure. Don’t expect televisions in the rooms, it’s all about rest, rejuvenation and relaxation. It was perfect for our group.
After checking in to their rooms where they found a welcome gift and letter, everyone met for a group dinner in the hotel and a relaxing evening of camaraderie. It was the lead-in to the next day, when everyone enjoyed a spa day and relaxed.
That evening, after dinner the group went for a human bowling experience on ice (a ton of fun) and then gathered around a campfire with a guitar player to enjoy the evening finished of with S’mores. It was a true mountain experience.
The next morning, the group headed to Hunter Mountain where in the morning, beginner skiers took some ski classes and the other more experienced skiers took to the mountain for some great time on the slopes. After lunch all of the guests went tubing on the mountain.
For the final evening, a quiet dinner and then into a private room with a roaring fire for desserts to review photos of their scavenger trip in Manhattan and to award prizes to the winning team.
