Spectacular views create an unforgettable conference venue at CMC's Spring Valley Campus

Spring Valley, located seven miles south of Glenwood Springs, is an inspiring location. It offers expansive views of the Roaring Fork Valley and a spectacular view of Mt. Sopris.  Meeting participants can "get away from it all" in the Colorado mountains, while staying close to restaurants, shops, galleries and concerts from Glenwood Springs to Aspen.

Flexibility for your group is key. From June through early-August, the campus can accommodate needs with more than 200 beds, a large cafeteria, and meeting rooms.

Team building is facilitated by a climbing wall and a challenge course right on campus.
