Enrich the mind, body and spirit of each attendee. Some sample group and individual experiences include:

  • Get out and move to be well! The link between physical activity, fresh air and good health has been clinically and scientifically proven. 
  • Enrich the soul by giving back while coming together. Teambuilding initiatives that involve community and charitable activities for social impact enhance personal growth and group mindfulness. 
  • The art of wellness. Unleash the power of creative expression on improving health and wellbeing. Arranged painting and drawing classes for all levels of artists include everything needed including the wine and appetizers!
  • Slowing down the tempo to improve results. Planned quiet activities like meditation, breathing sessions, yoga or planned recharging stations with residential seating and natural light can reduce stress and even promote connections between attendees.

As the seasons change, so do the activities at The Equinox. Summers are perfect for falconry, fly fishing, golf, tennis, boating and hiking. Winter snows bring cross country skiing, ice skating, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. And all year long, you can enjoy going off-pavement with the Land Rover Driving Experience.

Let Your Team Play - FOUR SEASONS OF FUN

Help meeting attendees get out of their comfort zone with adrenaline-pumping experiences that expand horizons and teach new skills. The Equinox offers traditional group options such as golf and tennis, but there are a lot of non-traditional activities to explore too. Gather together for guided hikes on Mt. Equinox, axe throwing, falconry lessons, clay shooting, fly fishing or off-road driving in a Land Cruiser. And that’s just in the warmer months. The Equinox transforms into a winter wonderland and offers a gamut of fun on the snow. Try cross country skiing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling and much more, with a range of activities appropriate for all skill levels.
