Summer/Fall

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.

If a wedding site appears on the calendar, it is already booked for that date as we accept one wedding per day per each venue site (ex. if you see a reservation for Woods Walk on a certain date then that date is no longer available). If your date and wedding site are available, please fill out the appropriate wedding contract (Step 3) to reserve! Calendar is updated as soon as reservations are confirmed.

Please take the time to review the contract for the venue of your choosing to determine what is allowed, not allowed, etc. Note – only acoustic music is allowed and receptions are not allowed.

Winter

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.
