New Non-Attending Partner Package (#3)
For the first time, the Odyssey offers attendees the chance to bring along one non-attending partner. Partners enjoy the benefits of the chartered bus, and room, board, and full amenities at Huus Hotel. While the academic program is mostly excluded, partners may attend Saturday’s Welcome & Introduction, Keynote Address, and evening of music. Partners are also welcome to join the stretch classes and coffee breaks, and to opt in to all Odyssey excursions. This is all not to mention the opportunity for their immersion in the elemental alpine beauty of the Saanen-Gstaad region!
