Planning a Winter Wedding?
Stunning winter mountain views and a cozy lodge feel
Surrounded by undisturbed snow and rich green pine trees, the lodge’s two outdoor ceremony sites offer dreamlike winter-wonderland settings. Both are within short walking distance from the lodge; cozy indoor ceremony options are available as well. Both reception rooms enjoy views of snow-capped Rocky Mountain peaks and an icy St. Vrain River.
Together, the ceremony sites and the lodge provide the ideal ambiance for a mountain winter wedding.

Activities at Wild Basin Lodge
Things to do for spring, summer, winter or fall
Guests of the Wild Basin Lodge & Event Center will find something for everyone. Rocky Mountain National Park sits adjacent to the property and offers unparalleled outdoor recreation. Fishing is but steps away on the St. Vrain River, or at Copeland Lake up the road. Short hikes lead to Calypso Cascades, Ouzel Falls, Bluebird and Thunder Lakes.
Winter brings its own activities, as the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park has some of the best cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the Rockies. For the extreme adventurer, the falls in the area are popular climbing attractions, and draw many people each year. For the downhill skier, major downhill resorts are only 45 minutes away by car.
Regardless of season, the Lodge offers some of the best wildlife viewing in the Rockies. It’s common to see elk, bighorn sheep, deer, bear, bobcat, coyote and many other animals in the vicinity of the lodge. The truly lucky will catch glimpses of moose, lynx or mountain lion that infrequently pass through the area.
