Crystal Mountain & Mt. Rainier Lodging

Weddings at Crystal Mountain-Winter

If you’ve ever dreamed of getting married in the mountains, Crystal Mountain is your dream come true. Imagine getting married at 6872′ feet with Mt. Rainier towering in the background. Or having your ceremony outdoors in the clean mountain air, surrounded by trees and wildflowers. No matter what venue you choose, your guests (and you) will never forget your special day.

Winter wedding space is very limited on the mountain. For a smaller, more intimate winter wedding, please contact one of our lodging providers. Alta Crystal Resort can host winter weddings (in conjunction with lodging) of up to 40 in its 1920s meeting lodge, with an additional 20 in a heated outdoor tent on the adjacent deck.

In the summer, Crystal Mountain and its three hotels can help you plan the perfect wedding, rehearsal dinner, brunch or ceremony for up to 400 guests.

Crystal Mountain
Have your ceremony at Crystal Mountain Summit, on the sun deck, in the chapel or in Crystal Mountain’s main lodge. Crystal specializes in weddings of 75-400 with fine Northwest catering, slopeside and close-by lodging and ample free-time activities for your guests.
