About Steamboat Springs Weddings
Steamboat Springs is way off of the beaten path in northern central Colorado. It’s a ski resort town, so its prime tourism season is in the colder months, which makes a summer wedding here both a beautiful and an affordable option. And much like the wedding venues near other ski areas in Colorado, many of the most unique Steamboat wedding venues will offer reduced rates during the “shoulder” seasons, which can be loosely defined as early spring (April) and late fall (November). Tourism typically decreases during these times of the year, so you’re more likely to find good deals of wedding venues and other wedding vendors as well.
There are a bunch of great breweries and restaurants in town and picturesque hikes for people of all ages and skill levels in the surrounding environs. Depending on which time of the year you’re planning to tie the knot, of course! Plus, in the summertime, they construct a small roller coaster at the base of the mountain, which always makes for some cool candid wedding photos. So don’t worry if you’re not a skier or snowboarder! There are plenty of fun activities for everyone in Steamboat Springs.
And for the really dramatic views, a gondola ride to the top of the mountain for your wedding portraits is just what the doctor ordered. Speaking of the top of the mountain, you can also hold your ceremony and/or host your reception at the Thunderhead Lodge, which offers breathtaking views of sunset over the town of Steamboat Springs. Plus, all of your guests get to ride up on the gondola, which makes for a really cool and unique wedding experience. Especially for those guests coming from out of town who aren’t accustomed to being in the mountains.
