Imagine…A Mountain Wedding!
By Laurette Veres
When Texans leave our great state, we are looking for something different. Specifically,Texans crave a change in scenery and what could be more different than the majestic snow-capped mountains of Utah.
Whether you plan your wedding during ski season or prefer the warmer months, Utah abounds with truly awe-inspiring mountain views and world-class lodging. Just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, you’ll find the authentically western town of Ogden, home to the Snowbasin Resort, one of the oldest continuously operating ski areas in the nation. The Snowbasin resort plays host to weddings year-round. Summer and fall weddings tend to be most popular; however, winter weddings are steadily growing in popularity. Imagine the thrill of tying the knot at 9000 feet! Some “extreme”couples even choose to ski or snowboard down the mountain decked- out in full bridal attire. For a more classic setting, several on-mountain and indoor lodge locations are available where a traditional ceremony will still be an unforgettable experience.
One exceptional feature that makes Snowbasin stand out from all other ski resort locations: the unparalleled quality of the ski lodges. If you’ve skied before, toss out every idea you have about a day lodge. The magnificent mountain lodges at Snowbasin are unexpected treasures that rival a country club setting.
Elegant crystal chandeliers, comfortable leather chairs, cozy fireplaces and simply the nicest ski lodge bathrooms in the world, provide an upscale setting your guests will love.
