Together As One

Mountain Adventure Couples Retreat


Join Jackie and Kevin Freiberg for a weekend in the Wasatch Mountains for an experiential couples retreat to grow your friendship, deepen your love and rise stronger AS ONE.

A time to ReflectRefreshRe-ImagineResurge

During the weekend you’ll have enriching opportunities to REFLECT, REFRESH and RE-IMAGINE how you complement, strengthen and complete one another, and then, RESURGE into a happier, stronger, more vibrant relationship.

Based on the work of the Gottman Institute, the Freiberg’s hard-fought insight from 34 years of marriage and a Christlike understanding of love, this retreat will invite you to engage in a lifetime of discovering and rediscovering each other.

Six Enriching Conversations

If you are like most of us, you want to be loved and accepted as you are, but you don’t want to stay the way you are. You want to change, grow and live a big life. Making your marriage or relationship a true source of joy requires intention and attention.

On the mountain, we will begin the re-imagine journey by unpacking six specific conversations that are crucial for loving and appreciating your partner more deeply. Think about it, if your marriage or relationship is on auto-pilot, it’s also in atrophy.

You’ll be invited to “dial up” your curiosity and never stop exploring one another. At the conclusion you receive a play book for making these conversations an ongoing part of growing and enriching your relationship.

What This Is Not…

It’s not therapy, it’s not for couples who are broken and need to be fixed. And this is not a quick-fix retreat or a one and done approach for living and loving more passionately.

This is an invitation to future-proof your marriage or relationship by engaging in conversations to grow your connection, strength and resilience together.

Who Should Come

The engaged.
Couples deciding whether to commit to a future together.

The starters.
Couples who are newly married and want to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of success.

The seasoned.
Couples who have been together for years and want to deepen and strengthen an already-great relationship.

The stale.
Couples who have fallen into auto-pilot and want to rekindle something they’ve neglected. Couples who want to transform routine and neglect into passion and vitality.

Wherever you are in your relationship, you are not too early or too late. If you are seasoned and don’t want to go stale, or you’re just starting and want to become seasoned, this retreat is for you.

A Romantic Setting

Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains at the end of a gorgeous box canyon, Sundance, UT is an arts community with world-class recreation—a place where creativity thrives, discovery is abundant and growth is inevitable.

This one-of-a-kind venue has a way of arresting you with the majestic beauty of 12,000 ft. Mount Timpanogos and then consuming you with its natural charm and rustic elegance.

It is the perfect place for couples to reflect, refresh, re-imagine and begin a resurgence journey.

Dig Deep and Play Hard

Our facilitation/discussion will take place at the Freiberg’s home, located five minutes above Sundance Resort.

Each morning we will dig deep and unpack two of the six conversations. Then, you will engage in some of the most exciting adventure activities the mountain has to offer. Here’s what you can expect…

Sundance Zip Tour

Get ready to soar over 2100 feet of vertical drop at Sundance UT. The Sundance Zip Tour is recognized as one of the most exciting and scenic zip tours in the world and one of the highest and longest zip lines in the United States.

After a 3-2-1 count down, you’ll launch and ride side-by-side on the zip line’s double cables.

While fully in control of your own speed, you can go full throttle at speeds of 65 miles per hour or you can stop mid-line to take in the breathtaking vistas. The experience is exhilarating. The takeaways are priceless.

Scenic Chairlift Ride & Lunch

You and your partner will hop on two different lifts, sit back, relax and enjoy the colorful, panoramic views as you ascend to the top of Sundance Mountain. There, you will have a casual, yet epic lunch at Bearclaw cabin.

While enjoying refreshments, tacos, burritos, or a heaping plate of nachos you’ll feel like you are on top of the world as you take in the spectacular 360-degree views of Heber and Utah Valleys.

Your adventure continues by riding the lifts back to the base of the mountain for more breathtaking views of the Wasatch mountain range.

Fall Colors Hiking

The Fall colors of Sundance never disappoint so grab your partner, set your pace and have your camera ready as you make your way through scenic trails, mountain forests and open meadows.

You’ll gear up and head out for a three-mile out-and-back hike to Stewart Falls, one of Sundance’s most popular hikes and one of the most scenic and photogenic waterfalls in northern Utah. The Falls are over 200 feet high and spill over in two tiers.

The brave at heart always slip under the falls for an epic refresh and recharge!

ATV Adventuring in the Wasatch Mountains

As the saying goes, play together to stay together. And since Utah is celebrated for its recreation and adventure, this is your chance to play hard on dusty trails as you navigate the Wasatch and Uinta National Forests.

Get ready for an afternoon of high adventure. You’ll saddle up, side-by-side, in a two seater and roar through the backcountry taking in scenic vistas, crossing river beds and climbing hills on ATVs.

If you are new to ATVs, you’ll be amazed at where these machines can go.

Kayak the Provo River

For this afternoon’s adventure you’ll strap on a life jacket and hop in a tandem kayak. Together you’ll float the mild rapids and paddle your way down the Provo River. Known as one of the iconic fly fishing rivers in the west, the Provo in the Fall is spectacular!

Kayaking the Provo River is a refreshing and rejuvenating way to take in Provo canyon and float above what is considered to be some of the best trout fishing in Utah.

Your Weekend Hosts & Facilitators:

Drs. Jackie and Kevin Freiberg

We are not marriage and family therapists. In fact, we have spent our entire careers writing books about, speaking to and advising business leaders. We are entrepreneurs and partners who have been working, writing, speaking and raising children together for more than 34 years.

Our desire in putting this weekend together is simple. In the fourth quarter of our lives we want to keep growing and make our marriage stronger, more adventurous and more vibrant than it was in the first three quarters.

We have a successful marriage, but it has not been easy or perfect. Understatement of the day, right?

We have struggled and grown stronger together through serious disillusionment, pain and conflict. We have taken risks and tested our boundaries on adventures together. And, we have enjoyed celebrating many of life’s incredible blessings… together. Through it all, we have a deeper respect, stronger admiration and a more robust friendship than when we were first married.

Like many of our friends, we can honestly say, we are wiser about love and more in love than we were way back then. But we haven’t arrived. So, we’d like to share some of that hard-fought wisdom with you and learn from you while enjoying a kick-ass time on the mountain we’ve come to love—a place we consider our sacred space.


The mountain suites at the resort offer a variety of choices, from a single studio bedroom ($293 + tax) to a 3 bedroom loft that can accommodate three couples. All of the rooms are very comfortably decorated—and most are fully self-contained.

Or, two or three couples who come together have the option of staying in one of several mountain homes just minutes from each other.

Restaurants & Bar

We will enjoy meals in one of two award-winning restaurants at Sundance, the Tree Room and the Foundry Grill.

We will also hang out at a bar built in the late 1800’s. The world-famous Owl Bar, a place where you can easily re-imagine Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid planning their next heist.
