Your group will be saying “Delizioso!” after a pasta-making class at TRIO. Executive Chef Jeremy Loomis shares his passion for traditional Italian cuisine by teaching your team how to make pasta from scratch. The class—held inside TRIO’s Uptown Palm Springs location—includes hands-on instruction for making gnocchi and a signature sauce, recipe cards, and a small bag of gnocchi to take home. This culinary experience is a fantastic way to build team spirit and create lasting memories.

In just 10 minutes on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, your team can soar 8,516 feet up the stunning cliffs of Chino Canyon to the pristine wilderness of Mt. San Jacinto State Park. There, it’s about 30 degrees cooler than on the desert floor, making it a perfect day outdoors. Enjoy two restaurants, observation decks, a natural history museum, documentary theaters, a gift shop, meeting rooms with stunning views, and over 50 miles of hiking trails. It's an ideal mix of team bonding and adventure.
