Event Description

Is your team looking for a uniquely thrilling experience? Our Build-A-Sled outdoor team building event offers hands-on creativity and design only achievable by communication and collaboration. Everyone NEEDS to do his or her part and play a role or the team will get stuck in the snow. Teams that practice good communication, teamwork, and listening skills are the ones who will glide across the finish line.

During Build-A-Sled, teams are charged with the challenge of building a cardboard sled from a limited supply of resources. At first, they may be surprised by the materials they have to build with but with some genuine teamwork and leadership, anything is possible! And there are roles for everyone, which means your whole group is engaged at the level that works best for them. If teams collaborate well and work cooperatively the sled will soar down the mountain with speed and precision.

This is a highly engaging and “hands-on” outdoor team building event where teams are justifiably proud of the outcome. It makes the best of winter weather while also making the best of your team!
