Officiated by Harry Heilman of Universal Life Church, the mass wedding will last about 30 minutes outside the cabin located at an elevation of 12,050 feet. Couples getting married must obtain a Colorado marriage license and bring it to the ceremony to be signed. Encouraged to dress in warm “ski-wedding” attire, couples may pre-register and be eligible for 2-for-1 lift tickets on the day of the event. Pre-registration ends on Wednesday.

Couples and guests must ski or snowboard back to the base after the ceremony. It is possible to ski all the way down on a green beginner trail. An after-party will be held on the Basin Patio at the base area. Wedding cake and sparkling cider will be served at 1:30 p.m. with raffles and a best-dressed contest starting at 2 p.m.

Loveland Ski Area is located along the Continental Divide on Interstate 70 at the Eisenhower Tunnel. The ski area is just 53 miles west of Denver.
