About

Looking for a destination wedding in the heart of the Rocky Mountains? You’ve found the place! The Black Diamond Lodge offers on site catering options, on-site lodging, and full service coordination for the couples looking for an all-inclusive experience, but also offers flexibility for couples looking to plan their own unique event.

Located just 45 minutes from Downtown Durango in the beautiful Hermosa Valley near Purgatory Ski Resort, The Black Diamond Lodge aims to provide a ski lodge, event venue and bar for wedding parties, families and businesses looking to create memories in the mountains!

The Black Diamond Lodge, formerly The Silverpick Lodge, transitioned ownership in 2022 and the new owners are excited to continue the memory-building, celebration-having legacy of the past few decades. With new offerings and a brand new killer staff, the building is getting a full remodel prior to the 2022 wedding season to launch into the summer with a fresh, clean updated venue.

Accommodation

The Black Diamond Lodge can accommodate up to 48 guests, with 12 bedrooms and private baths. Lodging is billed separately and pricing varies based on season. Your lodging package gives you full private 24-hour access to our spa with two hot tubs, a steam shower, and a sauna, as well as our game room, movie room and community kitchen and dining room that can sit up to 80 people. Adjacent condominiums can host up to 100 guests in a variety of two and three-bedroom guestrooms. From hiking in spring and summer and skiing in winter to local restaurants and bars, there is plenty to see and do from this unique location.

Capacity

The Black Diamond Lodge can accommodate weddings of up to 115 guests.

    Excellent all in one wedding event location

    The Black Diamond Lodge is an amazing venue for anyone thinking about doing a Colorado wedding. I loved that the ceremony, reception, and lodging were all in one location so I didn't have to worry about transportation. this also allowed me and the guest the time flexibility to get anything done that they wanted. It's only about a 30 minute drive into town to get anything that you may have forgot or to pickup/have delivered anything that you want/need for your perfect wedding. The team at the Black Diamond Lodge were extremely flexible and I ended up changing my ceremony location the day of because I wanted a perfect view of the mountains. There are plenty of amenities for all of your guest to keep them busy and brand new beds a/o 2022 to ensure that everyone sleeps comfortably. It was the absolutely perfect location of the mini wedding that we wanted and exceeded all of our expectation.

    Exceptional

    The Black Diamond Lodge team was the most amazing team we could’ve asked for from their assistance to finding everything to their details and making it happen the day of. Not only was the team amazing but the location is breathtaking and perfect as well! I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone! You’ll get everything you dreamt of and more!

    Perfect venue for the semi-DIY couple!

    The Silverpick Lodge was the PERFECT venue for a weekend wedding. Chris, Neal, and the rest of the staff are incredibly skilled at what they do. We were able to do as much as we wanted to ourselves and they assisted when necessary. The lodge and meadow are absolutely gorgeous and nearly everyone attending the wedding was able to stay on site or nearby at Purgatory Resort. We had our reception dinner at The Sow’s Ear and the food was amazing. If you’re looking for a truly incomparable experience for your wedding definitely check out the Silverpick. We can’t wait to come back for our anniversary!
