Alta Peruvian Lodge Wedding Info

Welcome to a ski resort of yesteryear. Alta Peruvian Lodge has the rustic charm of Utah’s ski resorts of the past. Here it is all about the mountains and the preservation of the landscape. But while you won’t find fancy amenities, you will find an enchanting space that will feel cozy to you and your guests even though you are surrounded by the vastness of the great outdoors. 

Alta Peruvian Lodge is open to weddings from June through September.

Wedding Ceremony Sites

The prime wedding ceremony site at Alta Peruvian Lodge is a large meadow off the side of the building at the base of the mountains. Here you can look up at soaring granite cliffs that possibly will still be touched with snow as you say your vows. 

You also can wed on the pool deck with similar views, though there is less room for guests.
