What’s included with site rental?

When you choose Crested Butte Mountain Resort as your event location, your Wedding Sales Manager will assist you with many of your planning details including menu selection, logistics, timing, and lodging setup, while providing you with options for your rehearsal dinner or welcome party, post-wedding brunch, and information regarding resort activities.


What time of year is your venue exceptionally gorgeous?

Summer, of course! Crested Butte is known as the “Wildflower Capital of Colorado,” so starting in June the natural landscapes around our wedding venue abound with all kinds of wildflowers like lupine, larkspur, columbines and wild roses, which add natural beauty to your event. There’s a saying in the mountains: “I came for the winter, but I stayed because of the summer.” Come summer time, the trails, rivers and peaks surrounding Crested Butte explode with a bevy of activity. Fishing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, golfing, or basking in the Colorado sun are just a few of the things that you and your guests can enjoy while you are here.

How far in advance should a couple book their venue?

At least one year in advance.
