About

Up to 250 guests

Located in Marysville, Montana, Great Divide Ski Area is a unique destination that can act as a couple's dream-come-true wedding reception venue. Situated above the historic town of Marysville, this getaway is just 30 minutes from Helena. The property is pleased to offer community-based options for ski areas in the winter. In the other remaining seasons, Great Divide Ski Area holds a beauty that can surely be the gorgeous backdrop a wedding needs. Wildflowers feature across the landscape in the early summer, and late summer brings wild berries, ripe for the picking. Early Fall presents spectacular views, including yellow and red foliage, that span into the horizon. Whatever the season, this destination is sure to make a lasting impression.

Facilities and Capacity

A Great Divide Ski Area, the Base Lodge offers 8,000 square feet of indoor space. This celebration area can accommodate groups of up to 250 guests. Attached to the Base Lodge is a 3,000 square foot deck. This space is perfect for dancing, especially in the summer evening hours. In addition to the floorspace, a full-service bar is available for any combination of options. This bar can be a cash, hosted, or limited bar, and specialty cocktails can be arranged on request.

From hors d'oeuvres to a buffet-style dinner, couples' occasions can be well-fed with delicious ensembles of food fare. Alternatively, off-site catering can be used for an additional fee. While on the premises, couples and their guests can enjoy free WiFi, comfortable seating arrangements, and stunning mid-mountain views.

    Incredible service, incredible views, incredible day!

    Wow! I cannot say enough good things about our perfect day at Great Divide. Rose and her team went above and beyond to make sure our day was well organized and ran smoothly. She was so patient in answering all of our questions as we solidified decor, layout and schedule for the day. It was relaxing for us, and an incredible experience for our guests. The views I got while walking down the aisle into the mountain meadow outside of Huggins Lodge will be engraved in my memory forever! We were also so glad we went with great divide for our catering! It took a lot of stress off the planning and the food was amazing (pulled pork and Mac and cheese was a huge hit!) if you are looking for a stunning, unique Montana experience for you and your guests, you have found your venue :)

    Summer wedding

    The Great Divide Ski lodge is a great place for a wedding. It was a beautiful peaceful evening. It was relaxing and organized. There was everything we needed to make this day happen. We did our communication with Rose, who was very helpful, responsive, and thoughtful. We would highly recommend this venue for its location and ease in planning.

Thanks for check out Great Divide!

While I grew up in Helena, I have meander through several states before ultimately laying down my family roots in Montana. I believe that many people don't understand or appreciate the beauty of Montana until they have spent significant time outside of the state. I am truly lucky to call Montana, and more specifically Great Divide Ski Area, my home.

I am excited to be heading up our summer operations at Great Divide, in particular weddings. Helping couples start their journey together brings joy to my world and I can't wait to start planning your wedding!
