Outdoor Adventuring as a Team at Benchmark Resorts & Hotels

Spring is in full bloom and, as the weather grows warmer and the days stretch longer, it’s the perfect time to move your next team building activity out of the office and into the great outdoors. Not sure which outdoor adventure is right for your team? Here are four outdoor activities sure to boost motivation, promote a healthy work environment and foster deeper connections among colleagues:

Willows Lodge (Woodinville, WA)

Sammamish River/Burke-Gilman Trail

Rent a hybrid mountain bike and helmet from Willows Lodge and escape to the heart of Woodinville Wine Country. The 26-mile Sammamish River/Burke-Gilman Trail borders Willows Lodge and runs all the way from Bothell to Seattle, offering breathtaking views along the way. This paved, multi-use trail is perfect for a scenic walk, run or bike ride.

Skamania Lodge (Stevenson, WA)

Compete against your teammates and embrace the challenge of the Gorge Loop Fitness Trail. The 0.9-mile forested trail loop winds throughout the Skamania Lodge property and includes 17 total body exercise activities and five fitness stations complete with eco-friendly TimberForm fitness equipment made locally in the Pacific Northwest. Participants can choose from beginner, intermediate or advanced exercise options.

Aerial Park

Test your strength, balance and agility by maneuvering through Skamania Lodge’s Aerial Park – all while safely carabinered in, of course! The park consists of 19 platforms and 23 elements of varying degrees of difficulty, taking roughly two hours to complete. Your team can lead themselves through the aerial park independently with the assurance that Park Monitors will move throughout the course to assist as needed.
