If you are joining us for the first time, you will fall in love with Jiminy Peak. If you have been here before, you know why this is an event not to miss! Paradise has never been about packing people in and collecting the mad cash, this is a place to enjoy the environment, fresh air, and setting a mood that encourages inspiration and creativity. It's one thing to take a seminar and have to wait to get home, and other to leave a panel inspired and have a painting waiting for you to attack! Book your rooms and condos asap as they are very limited!
