Perfect partner for a magical mountain wedding

Do you want to have stunning views with an epic party guided by the best coordinator team in the biz? Then you must have your wedding at Skibowl. Shannon, Cheyenne, and the whole team were truly a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We had a 200 person wedding at Skibowl that went off without a hitch thanks to their attentiveness, flexibility, and commitment to making the day super special for us. They had a very clear pricing guide and worked closely with us to make sure we could personalize our wedding while also being budget-conscious. They helped us accommodate dietary needs, planned non-alcoholic beverage options for us, and were always prompt in fielding our endless questions. Highlights included them assisting us in wrangling our somewhat-unruly wedding party for the rehearsal, hosting a private tasting for us after we missed their tasting party due to COVID, and bringing us cocktails at the base of the alpine slide prior to our grand entrance. We’re really grateful to have gotten to work with the Skibowl team for our wedding; they were awesome!

Best day best staff best venue

We knew the moment we met Cheyenne and Shannon that Ski Bowl was the right choice!
They were so welcoming, low key, and inviting. They made the planning, and logistics of our Wedding day the easiest and most memorable experience we could wish for. I am not sure how people put on a wedding that is NOT at Ski Bowl!
It was everything we could've wished for. Not a single piece out of line just hours of fun with your guests. It was the best day of my Wife and I's life. We would re live this day 10000x over and Ski Bowl played a MASSIVE part in that. I mean it when I say it, we had absolutely no stress in the process of getting married at Ski Bowl. Every aspect of this venue is DIALED. We got SO many complements from our guests on the food, atmosphere, event space, and full on experience they got to be apart of.
Mt. Hood holds a special place in our hearts, and now Ski Bowl has just added to a long list of love and memories on that mountain.
I cannot recommend this venue enough. The staff, service, cost, and just over all support you get is absolutely unbeatable.
The wedding industry can be tough to navigate, but Ski Bowl makes it a breeze.

Mt. Hood SkiBowl

It doesn't get any better than Mt. Hood SkiBowl for a wedding venue! For all those outdoorsy couples who have a special place in their hearts for the mountain, this is the most magical place to get married. Truly. The intimacy of the mountain, the playfulness of the alpine slide, the FUN that is SkiBowl - I'm not sure there's anything better really (I may be biased but still) :) Also, it's much more affordable than some of the other venues in the area and can accommodate a large number of guests. They checked all our boxes!

Cheyenne and Shannon were incredible to work with and so helpful throughout the course of planning and day-of coordination. They are both professionals who were great at answering all our endless questions, helping us make the best decisions within our budget, and offering creative ideas that made the day all the more special. Also, they are just wonderful humans who are incredible to share the best day of your life with! I couldn't have asked for a better venue or people to work with.

If you love the mountains and are hoping for a playful, authentic wedding that feels like home away from home - this is the venue for you!

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I love all things outdoors! With over twenty five years in the hospitality industry, coordinating weddings with Mt Hood Skibowl was a natural fit. I love working with couples from the beginning to the end. My goal is to make the day seamless, fun, and exactly as you dreamed it would be.

My expertise lies in high-end service and food & beverage. I love to help build menus, pair wine and libations, and execute each couple's unique vision. I look forward to working with you!

I am Originally from Wales, UK but now call the Pacific Northwest my forever home.
I love the variety of things to do in this breathtakingly beautiful part of the world.
There are not many places where you can Surf at Sunrise and Ski until Sunset on the same day.

After finishing my Degree in Tourism, I focused on learning and gaining as much
Hospitality experience as possible. I've worked in Five Star Ski resorts and have had the privilege of being a part of many prestigious events.
After years of hard work, I can most certainly say that working as a Wedding and Event Coordinator can be considered an absolute passion of mine.

Who dosent love, love? It brings me joy to meet those who have a vision for a Ski Bowl Wedding as it is such a unique place to get married.
Myself and the team can help capture your unique vision, no two weddings are the same and that's what makes it so interesting and exciting.

It’s an honor to help you create such special memories that last a lifetime.

Thank you for considering Skibowl!
