Today, begin your morning with a breakfast buffet in the hotel’s Columbia Ballroom, followed by the start of your agenda of corporate meetings. Following a lunch buffet, enjoy a leisurely afternoon and let your group enjoy the resort’s many amenities and get outdoors for a hike, mountain bike ride, or helicopter adventure.
This evening, transportation for your group will be provided to nearby Crow Creek Mine. With an estimated production rate of 700 ounces per month, Crow Creek Mine is one of the largest producer of placer gold deposits in the state of Alaska.
The Mine provides a unique opportunity to relive the Historic Gold Rush of Alaska. Established in 1896, the mine is one of Alaska’s most renowned hydraulic gold mining operations. Crow Creek Mine offers a unique blend of historical buildings, antiques, rare mining equipment, beautiful gardens, amazing mountain scenery, hiking trails (including the Historic Iditarod Trail), and access to explore and prospect on the mines’ original claims.
After your visit to Crow Creek, a catered dinner will be provided for your group while you enjoy the sounds and songs of a local Alaskan band. Your guests can dress up as a prospector or pose with an Alaskan dog sled for photos printed right on the spot. There will even be some Iditarod puppies provided by another Iditarod Trail Sled Dog race veteran and four-time champion Martin Buser. Throughout the evening your guests will have the opportunity to pan for gold and strike it rich! Guides will be onsite to teach them how to be a successful prospector!
