Chairlift Weddings in the Colorado Rockies
Nestled in a secluded mountain valley with chairlift access to sweeping views from Winter Park to Grand Lake, Granby Ranch is the ideal setting for an intimate Rocky Mountain wedding. Host your mountain-top ceremony, reception, and rehearsal dinner all onsite at Granby Ranch.
What do prospective brides and grooms love?
Flexibility. Couples choose from a variety of options and layer them individually, not a set wedding package or plan.
Budget accommodation. Couples can choose from buffet or plated dinner options, with offerings ranging from mountain-rustic gourmet burger stations to black-pepper-and-lavender encrusted tenderloin.
Intimate feel. Granby Ranch isn’t a mega resort, and families never feel overwhelmed or like just another wedding party.
Personal attention. Brides and grooms typically visit the Ranch several times for planning meetings, tastings, and weekend getaways. In their reviews, brides call out planners and staff by name for their outstanding care and follow-though.
One-of-a-kind setting. Brides in ski boots, grooms entering on mountain bikes? All fit the bill here. Guests ride the chairlift to a clearing overlooking the Fraser Valley and Rocky Mountains. The site is ringed with wildflowers in summer, golden aspen in fall, and snowy peaks in winter. As guests watch, the bride enters through a tunnel of ancient aspen trees.
Total package service. Granby Ranch offers multiple lodging options, rehearsal dinner venues, ceremony and reception sites and services, as well as 18-hole championship golf, hundreds of acres of mountain biking trails, lift-served hiking, cross country and downhill skiing, and three miles of gold-medal fishing waters.
Your guests will love access to golfing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, skiing, and onsite restaurants in our cozy mountain lodge. You'll love the personalized attention you'll receive from our professional planning team. They'll help you arrange the wedding of your dreams!
