Winter has a magic all its own. It starts with billions of snowflakes in as many different shapes, falling gracefully through day and night to form piles of pillowy soft fluff. Radiant white snow drapes from store awnings, makes street sign-shaped snowmen, and beckons kids and adults alike to come play in it.

There is lots of magic at Utah’s Snowpine Lodge, more than 500 inches of it every winter, attracting all manner of exuberant snow lovers who come to frolic in The Greatest Snow on Earth. Indeed, the rugged Wasatch Mountains are tireless hosts delivering guests unforgettable experiences from the slopes to idyllic mountain towns, packed with opportunity for exploration, reflection, and inspiration.

Lovers of another kind also adore the area for its palpable romance and postcard-perfect setting of dramatic mountains, soft snow in fifty shades of white, and blindingly blue skies. If you’re planning a winter wedding, make your memories at Alta’s Snowpine Lodge.

Historical Legacy, Romantic Luxury

Many people see Alta like a dream come true, that keeps happening every day! And the best place to live that dream is Snowpine Lodge, perched at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Snowpine is but a young ‘un, opening its doors in January of 2019 on the same site as the original lodge built here in 1941, when the town bustled with mining activity and comings and goings of hardy mountain folk. The mining boom transformed into a ski boom and the community still holds true to its roots.

Today’s version of the original lodge proudly carries on its lineage, while adding a large helping of luxurious touches from the rustic lounge area to rooms with breathtaking balcony views of the canyon and surrounding mountains. Alta’s first marquee luxury resort also offers top shelf service, dining, and ancillary facilities all within sight of some of the West’s most gorgeous alpine scenery.

I do, in Style

In the world of destination weddings, the options are only limited to your dreams and what better way to unite family and friends than a location as stunning as the moment? Snowpine Lodge hosts the highest level of service delivered by a seasoned and caring team to make your big day the best it can be.  

And it all happens in a luxuriously appointed lodge with the perfect blend of rustic and modern. The ballroom features an authentic hardwood floor and enormous windows from one end of the room to the other, showing off otherworldly mountain views, and of course the scene doesn’t get much better for an elegant dinner and lively dancing at the reception.  

You and your guests will enjoy every imaginable convenience and amenity to make your stay comfortable and unforgettable.  

More than Just a Resort

With nearly 500 mountain-based resorts in the US, why choose Snowpine? Choosing the right destination for your special day can make the event shine, or leave you with what might have been. It goes without saying that if any of your guests or members of the wedding party are skiers or snowboarders; they’ll love Snowpine’s slopeside accommodations for instant access to the powder and Alta’s laid back vibe. The lodge also offers two restaurants boasting mouth-watering fare; a lively, music-soaked bar; heated pool; hot tubs; movie room; fire pits, and lots more.

Looking for apres-ski pampering? The Stillwell Spa is the area’s only full-service facility, with six separate treatment rooms, steam room, sauna, indoor grotto, and oxygen bar. Don’t miss a soothing massage, wrap, or facial in an addictingly comfortable setting.

Your guests can appease their gastro urges before and after the grand wedding dinner at Swen’s Restaurant and The Gulch Pub. The former features regionally-sourced American cuisine and hand-picked wines and beers, while The Gulch offers a casual scene, with traditional comfort foods, bar selections, and popular craft beers and cocktails.

Imagine fresh white snow on a commanding mountain backdrop, with a perfect blue sky above. Now put you, your new bride or groom, and a dapper wedding party in the middle of it all. There won’t be a dry eye in the house, and you won’t want it to end.
