    Mt Hood Skibowl is a dream come true!

    Where do I begin?! Mt Hood Skibowl was THE PERFECT venue with everything we could have asked for. From the stunning views at the top of venue, to the ceremony site in a picturesque meadow, to the beautifully decorated tent at the lodge, to the mouthwatering food, everything was perfect!
    In the beginning, we worked with Becca, and she so graciously helped us navigate the unknown at the start of the pandemic. Our wedding was still a year and a half away, but Becca answered all of our questions, kept us up to date with possible pandemic restrictions, and when it was finally close enough to plan the small details, she answered our questions nearly as fast as we sent them.
    We were able to participate in a tasting, and the food was to die for. In the end, we requested pulled pork and chimichurri steak tacos, and donuts for dessert, I know, sounds weird, but they went above and beyond to accommodate our requests!
    The last few months before the wedding, Becca had to split her weddings (pandemic overflow in 2021), and we had the absolute delight to work with Shannon. Shannon was amazing! She worked so closely with Becca that she didn’t even skip a beat and knew exactly what was going on with our wedding. We are so grateful to have been able to work with Shannon, and she helped make our day perfect!
    Thank you to the both of you, thank you to all the staff that helped with our wedding, and thank you to Mt Hood Skibowl for being the dream wedding venue we could have ever asked for!!

    Amazing Venue

    You can’t go wrong with choosing Skibowl as your venue. From the jaw dropping views of Mt. Hood, the playful alpine slides, stunning entertainment spaces, our guests were so impressed! We had the best day of coordinators who helped us plan our dream wedding. The food was also delicious, our guests literally had mounds for their plates going through the buffet line and said it was the best food they have had at a wedding. We also hosted a morning after brunch at Skibowl. Thank you so much to Skibowl for hosting the wedding weekend of our dreams!

    Mt. Hood Skibowl's reply:

    Thank you, Emily! We had so much fun with your wedding party and family! It was a gorgeous day for sure!!

    A dream venue!

    We held our wedding here last weekend and could not have imagined a better day. Becca and her team were so easy to work with - food was amazing, staff was excellent and you can't beat that backdrop. We wanted our wedding to be memorable - and Skibowl definitely helped us accomplish that! Everything from the accommodations, ski lift, alpine slide and that gorgeous tent helped make our day so special for our friends and family. We can't recommend this venue enough!
