August 2019 Wedding That exceeded our expectations!
Our Daughter's wedding at Snowbasin August 17, 2019 exceeded our expectations. I knew when I met with Kristine Cline in August of 2018 that Snowbasin would be a perfect venue since we were planning a wedding long distance and our daughter's time was limited because of being a 3rd year resident. Kristine was wonderful to work with. I have experience putting on big events and I knew Kristine and the staff at Snowbasin knew how to do a first rate event. The service the day of the Wedding was above and beyond. While family was taking photos in the wildflowers which was quite a hike in heels and long dresses, the staff was bringing appetizers and drinks out to us on trays so that we would not miss out on the cocktail hour. We never asked for this service, they just did it and it was phenomonel! Putting everything together with Kristine was an easy process. There are so many choices with no upcharge. Needles Lodge was beautiful and the wildflowers that Lund Floral provided were a perfect addition. Richie the DJ was also a wonderful MC for the evening and really had the party going. I would recommend looking at these Snowbasin recommended vendors. The Gondola ride to Needles was a special treat for our guests. Once up at Needles, the venue is private and very intimate. We had a Buffet dinner which was Wonderful. We were prepared to have a plated service if needed (depending on our final guest list number) and felt comfortable that either would be equally as good. Again, I cannot say enough about the service from Day 1 of planning. Kristine was the best and the Catering Manager Ashley was equally as wonderful that day! We are looking forward to going back to Snowbasin to enjoy a Sunday Brunch at Needles or a Sunday afternoon Brews and Blues festival. It truly is a special place. I would also recommend Lakeside and Edgewater Condos for your guest. They are about 10 minutes down the Mountain and were a perfect place to spend the Wedding Weekend.Sent on 09/08/2019

Fairy Tale Wedding!!!
I wish every bride and groom could have the experience we did for our wedding. It was truly a fairy tale. Kristine Cline and the Snowbasin staff were top notch. I cannot speak highly enough for this venue. It was absolutely perfect in every way.Sent on 04/05/2019
My now husband and I decided we wanted to get married in the mountains during the winter. We live in TN so I was a little nervous about planning a wedding from afar. I came across Snowbasin online and reached out. We spoke to Kristine Cline, the event coordinator and then scheduled a video call with her so she could show us what Needles Lodge looked liked decorated for a wedding. We loved it so much we immediately picked a date and signed the contract. A few months later we went out there and saw the venue and met with Kristine. Kristine had everything ready for us to plan the entire wedding while we were there. We had a food tasting, chose the linen colors, the layout etc. This was so nice to have most everything done in one day. Additionally, Kristine gave us Snowbasin’s preferred vendor list. We scheduled meetings and had the photographer, the flourist and the officiant all finalized on this trip as well.
Once we got close to the wedding, Kristine was on top of everything and did not miss a beat. Because of all of her preparation and organization when it came to the the wedding day everything went so smoothly. I literally could not pick one thing I would change about our wedding. I did not have to remind anyone to do anything. They were on top of every little detail including opening our hand warmers 45 mins before the ceremony started so they would be warm for our guests.
The ceremony was straight out of a movie. Some of our guests kept saying they felt like they were in a hallmark movie from the second they got in the gondola. The backdrop on the patio at Needles was breathtaking. Our officiant, Kamrin Carver was the best I have ever seen and I am not just saying that because he did our wedding.
We had a sit down dinner for 100 guests. The food was so delicious. The passed appetizers and warm fireplace were perfect to come in to after the ceremony outside. The entrees, sides and dessert were incredible. And trust me you do not need to worry about enough food, they are incredibly generous with their portions. We also had late night snacks which everyone loved. The wait staff and bartenders were so professional.
Needles Lodge was picturesque. The chandeliers, big stone fireplaces and views are among the many beautiful aspects. You do not need much in terms of flowers and decor because the Lodge is so grand that anything else will take away from its beauty. Our florist, Lund Floral did a fabulous job keeping the flowers simple and elegant to compliment the Lodge.
After dinner we danced the night away using Snowbasins DJ, Richie. He was so fun and did a awesome job. Needles has a great dance area and the lighting and equipment were great.
Most of our guests got out there on Wednesday or Thursday and enjoyed Snowbasins awesome skiing it has to offer.
The wedding from start to finish was so classy and elegant. Everyone we worked with from the Snowbasin staff to their preferred vendors were incredible and I cannot recommend this venue enough! I can’t wait to get all the beautiful pictures back from Brandon Burke!
