NEW! Paradise Ceremony Site
Take a Chairlift Ride to Paradise

200+ guests
Seasonal access, July through September

If you’re the one who, after reaching the summit of a long hike, spreads her arms wide and twirls while singing, “The Hills are Alive!” then Paradise is the place for you.  Paradise truly sits at what feels like the top of the world.  Wedding guests are treated to an amazing scenic chairlift ride to the mountaintop, where they will then meander down a walking path that leads to the ceremony site. A favorite winter ski run, this site is an open, grassy area with a ceremony platform, providing panoramic views for an awe-inspiring backdrop. Receptions are held at Purgy’s (or other Village venues), located steps away from the chairlift base. Seasonal access via Lift 1. 
*Limited resort shuttle access available for those unable to ride the chairlift. Ski access only during winter, with limited size and availability.
