Black Mountain Lodge

Black Mountain Lodge accommodates up to 200 guests for your special day. Vaulted ceilings, timber and stone design elements and towering windows adorn the interior of this romantic mid-mountain venue. Our lodge provides convenient spaces for your ceremony and reception, eliminating the stress of switching venues during your day. Transform our 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.

The Ceremony Site

Celebrate your union outdoors on our spacious Black Mountain Lodge deck with stunning views of wildflowers and the Continental Divide serving as your backdrop. Travel to and from your venue via the Black Mountain Express lift for your procession, a quiet moment with your spouse after the ceremony, or load your entire wedding party for a unique photography session. Our dedicated wedding coordinator and event staff are available to manage your itinerary, organize you procession and set up your ceremony and reception areas.

Getting to mid-mountain

You and your guests travel to mid-mountain via the Black Mountain Express chair lift. Stretching from the base area to mid-mountain, the Black Mountain Express lift can carry four people per chair and slows at each terminal to allow for ease of loading and unloading. The chair can also come to a full stop when needed. Your site fee includes use of the chair before, during and after your ceremony and reception for a total of five hours, allowing your guests to arrive and depart at their leisure.
