Black Mountain Lodge

Arapahoe Basin's mid-mountain chalet, Black Mountain Lodge, provides the perfect rustic and romantic venue for your Colorado wedding or event. Inside the mid-mountain lodge, high vaulted ceilings supported by immense raw cut timbers rise above the spacious dining room where towering windows offer you and your guests incomparable views of the Continental Divide. Outside, the lodge's spacious deck extends above the mountain terrain and is the perfect setting for you and your guests to enjoy light hors d'oeuvre or for you to hold your entire wedding ceremony - all at 11,550 feet above sea level. Black Mountain Lodge can support up to 200 guests.
