Departure to the St Regis at Deer Valley, let the Incentive Trip begin.....

We were very lucky to be able to hear the Tabernacle Choir before our transfer to the St. Regis.  It was outstanding, such a grand theatre style room, and the perfomance was broadcast live whilst we sat and listened.

We then chatted and learnt about our surroundings during the short walk back to our hotel ready for our onward journey.  I took these pictures as we walked.

Michelle with Shannon West

And here is the Convention Centre, just right opposite our hotel which was great, although it meant that we didn't get to see much of SLC due to our 24hour delay.

Paul and Paula, such a gorgeous couple

We boarded the coach and soon, way up in the mountains we were greeted with our stay for the next 6 nights......

The St. Regis at Deer Valley is one outstanding hotel, set in the midst of a ski resort, stunning views and surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife.

I arrived before Jay as he had flown separately and inside the hospitality suite were oodles of sweet jars, delicious chocolate and caramel coated popcorn, sandwiches and fruit skewers.  We were told to drink as much water as we could during our stay due to the altitude and boy did we need it, it was so hot.  We sat outside and ate our snacks, amazed by our surroundings.

When Jay arrived I had to go for seconds on this popcorn, it was just too good!

Michelle, you are soooooo naughty, we've only just got here!!!

Once my room was ready I went up for a sneak peak and gosh, it was lovely.  Our name badges and sweet boxes were there waiting for us along with a snack basket on the bed.

On our first night we had dinner at the hotel which was lovely, beautiful food, surroundings, company and table treats too!!  We sat until the sun went down behind the mountains.  I sat next to Nate, Shelli's son-in-law who is a Director at Stampin' Up! so our chat was very interesting!

We didn't stay up too late, Jay was pooped from his flight, bless him, his blinks were getting longer and longer! 

The gorgeous table decorations and place settings

and the lovely people I was surrounded by

Quite a busy day but more exciting things on the agenda for Day 2
