During the ski season special arrangements can be made to rent part of the lodge while we are open, or the whole lodge when closed.  We are an operating ski area on weekends and some school holidays from whenever there is enough snow to open, until mid-April.  Additional road plowing costs may apply.


We have special weekday rates and shoulder season rates: a Deluxe 24 Hour Package, 12 Hour Special, or hourly packages can be booked at a discount Mondays through Thursdays, and all events in May and September. 12 Hour Specials booked for weekdays and shoulder seasons also include all standard equipment (tables, chairs, wedding arch, canopies, stage pieces) at no extra cost!

Alpenglow Lodge has additional equipment and furniture available as an add-on to any package: $1250 to add on to the Deluxe 24 Hour package, and $2000 to add onto an Hourly or 12 Hour Special package.  We offer a dance floor, white padded ceremony chairs, a bar package (four built-in taps, high tops, bar stools), a small sound system, and a large variety of decorations. All items are also available individually – please inquire for more details or see the 2018 rate sheet. Please note that prices for 2017 events may vary.

We can also provide a complete venue package, including decoration, setup, and cleaning service. Add this service onto any package for $1500.
