The meals were on time and the food options were a hit with our youth. Things ran smoothly and everyone had a great experience. The reservation process and check-in was simple, and communication whether through email or in person was great.

The kids loved the skiing and other activities we planned for them. You have a beautiful set up for youth conferences, and we will plan to do one there again in the future.

"The cabins were well maintained, comfortable, and rustic. The youth really liked them. The conference rooms had everything we needed for ward devotionals. The food was excellent...and the meal selections were healthy. Your personnel were excellent to work with. Because of them we all felt like we had joined a rich and famous country club! Our youth made memories that will last them a lifetime."

"The food was excellent! We are very happy with our [Aspen Grove] experience, and I have passed this on to several other Bishops. It is obvious that you have done this for a while, it certainly showed in how seamless it all ran. All of the leaders in our group were so impressed and even stated that this was the best youth conference they had ever attended. You made the bishop look good!"

The facilities are fantastic and the setting provides a wonderful atmosphere for our youth and leaders to bond and have a spiritually uplifting experience."

"Trying to carry out a winter youth conference for 90 plus youth and leaders is very difficult. The staff, accommodations, and process at Aspen Grove remove these difficulties. Aspen Grove allows our leadership to just focus on providing a spiritual and uplifting conference.
