Get married at Arapahoe Basin
Tie the knot at 11,500 feet! Whether you're an avid skier/snowboarder or just want a unique Colorado mountain wedding, Arapahoe Basin offers a scenic, intimate, and unforgettable setting for your special day.
The beautiful deck of our Black Mountain Lodge is our main wedding venue and is located at mid-mountain, accessed primarily by chairlift. The building is surrounded by the towering, 13,000-foot peaks of the Continental Divide and overlooks large fields of wildflowers.
Black Mountain Lodge accommodates up to 200 guests. Vaulted ceilings, timber and stone design elements, and floor-to-ceiling windows adorn the interior of this romantic wedding venue. Our lodge provides convenient spaces for your ceremony and reception, eliminating the stress of switching venues during your day. Transform our open room to your specifications—leave space for dancing or create a special space to cut the cake. Cocktail hour can be held outside on the front patio next to your ceremony space.
Travel to and from your venue via the Black Mountain Express chairlift for your procession, a quiet moment with your spouse after the ceremony, or load your entire wedding party for a unique photography session.
Black Mountain Lodge was ranked one of the top "out-of-the-ordinary" wedding venues on The Huffington Post and is a multi-time "best of" pick by The Knot.
