Incentive Trip Part 1

I haven’t had a chance to blog some piccies from the Incentive Trip!  So over the next few days, I”ll get it all completed.  Just so hard to choose what to post!

Stampin’ Up! put us up in an amazing location – The St Regis at Park City.  In the winter it’s a ski resort, which I find hard to imagine as it’s just so amazing and beautiful in the Summer as well!

The lobby when we entered the hotel was beautiful.  And in true SU style, there were lots of goodies available in all parts of the “hospitality room”.

The view from our room was amazing.  You could see the ski tracks between the trees.  The pool below looked inviting and the gazebo there, I later realised, was being set up for our evening meal!

A little welcome box waited on our bed:

After settling into our room we did a quick exploration of the hotel and came across this:

We had no idea what a Funicular was!

It is a glass “carriage” that took you down the steep hill to the lower part of the resort and the chair lifts etc.  The view from the Funicular was pretty cool too!

It was soon time to change for dinner and when we came back down we were greeted by a pretty floral display!

Dinner was divine!  We were greeted back in our room with an exciting parcel of Stampin’ Up! Goodies before collapsing into bed!

The next morning, Stampin’ Up! had arranged a private breakfast for the Incentive Trip attendees and it was the perfect start to the day – to sit, eat and admire the view from the Terrace:

I don’t know how many times the thought “I can’t believe I’m here” went through my mind over the course of the Incentive Trip.  Every element was just amazing!

Our second day was unscheduled – so we were able to take our time.  A group of us headed off to Utah Olympic Park for the morning, which was the site of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics 2002!  We rode the chair lifts up, Ziplined down the mountain, rode the chair lifts some more, rode down the mountain again!

And then we hit the Outlet Shops!  Woohoo!  The shopping was fantastic!  Bec and I even found a little shop we’d been hearing about for years:

Though I have to say that we were very reserved – nothing truly compares to Stampin’ Up! 🙂  We had the most amazing Burger, sweet potato fries and wine at the Red Stone complex, before stumbling back “home” on the shuttle that Stampin’ Up! had arranged for us all to come and go as we liked!

That evening, the demonstrators were able to attend our “swaps and sweets” events, but as I was a little early coming downstairs I discovered that the hotel did “smores” by the fire each night!  So I suppose I had sweets, swaps and sweets!  My first ever “smores”!

We collected our swaps – which were samples we all made and “swapped with eachother”  It was fantastic to be able to swap with other demonstrators from around the world this time!’ We also left one of each of our swaps for SU to display on the swap boards… here’s just a tiny selection….

 and you know what!  I totally forgot to take a photo of my own swap to show you!  I will have to make up another over the coming week to share with you!
