Woods Walk

Nestled in the aspens, just steps above the Town of Crested Butte, the Woods Walk is our most popular wedding site. It is also our own winter venue option. In summer and fall, a groomed trail leads you on a short walk through the woods from the Kebler Pass Road. Crested Butte Mountain sets the backdrop to this site, where summer’s wildflowers grow tall and fall’s golden aspens dance around you.

To reach the Woods Walk in the winter, you will cross a groomed ski trail that is maintained by Crested Butte Nordic. All guests are required to either use snowshoes or cross-country skis to get to and from the site. We also suggest that you contact CB Nordic to notify them of the date of your wedding and consider providing a donation.

Peanut Lake

Resting on the shores of the lake, the Peanut Lake wedding site is open, with grasses, willows. Located just off of Peanut Lake Road, this wedding site is convenient to access, and great for larger wedding parties (up to 100). Stunning, 360-degree views await, with a serene lake in the foreground. Note: Peanut Lake venue is not available in winter.

Gunsight Bridge

Resting on the banks of the Slate River, the Gunsight Bridge wedding site is tucked in the forest, with incredible view of Paradise divide on one side and Mt. Crested Butte on the other. Accessible by Slate River Road, this wedding site is convenient to access, and great for small wedding parties. It is great combination of stunning views and a beautiful river setting. Note: Gunsight Bridge venue is not available in winter.

If a wedding site appears on the calendar, it is already booked for that date; only one wedding per venue site is allowed each day. For example, if you see a reservation for Woods Walk on a certain date then that date is no longer available for that venue. If your date and wedding site are available, please continue to steps 3 and 4 to complete your reservation contract and payment. The calendar is updated as soon as reservations are confirmed.

Please take the time to read the entire contract to determine what is allowed on Land Trust conserved venues, then download and complete the contract. You will be prompted to upload your completed contract and select your venue of choice in the final step. Note for all venues – parking is extremely limited; only acoustic music is allowed; receptions are not allowed.

Wedding Venue Contract

A $2,000 deposit is required at the time of booking for scheduling a wedding venue, $500 of which is a refundable deposit to ensure the property is left in a clean and natural condition; you will receive a tax donation receipt letter for the remaining $1,500 donation. The property will be inspected by the Land Trust after the gathering to determine, at its sole discretion, whether the deposit shall be refunded. If for any reason the ceremony is cancelled, there will be a $250 non-refundable administration fee. If the cancellation is within 24-hours of the ceremony, we are unable to offer any refund.
