Woods Walk

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

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.

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.

Are you interested in a winter (November – April) wedding? We offer one site for cozy, snowy ceremonies. Be prepared for unpredictable weather and deep snow!

Woods Walk

Nestled in the aspens, just steps above the Town of Crested Butte, the Woods Walk is our most popular wedding site. To reach the Woods Walk in the winter, you have to cross a groomed ski trail that is maintained by Crested Butte Nordic. In order to respect their operations, we require that all guests either use snowshoes or cross-country skis to get to and from the site. It’s a short distance (less than 1/2 a mile), but walking on the groomed trails negatively impacts the experience for other users. We also suggest that you contact CB Nordic with the date of your wedding and a donation.
