Let the majestic Needle Mountains and the San Juan National Forest be the breathtaking backdrop for your ceremony. Whether it is the gentle rustle of leaves in an aspen grove, the spectacular views, or a carpet of glistening snow illuminated by moonlight, Purgatory Resort provides the perfect setting to create memories that will last a lifetime. Summer or winter, Purgatory Resort is the perfect setting to celebrate, entertain, and to create the Colorado wedding of your dreams.
