Summit County Wedding Activities
Summit County is a very popular destination for a wedding, with many beautiful spots to hold the ceremony – on top of a ski mountain, in the National Forest overlooking the lake, on a deck with a view of the Continental Divide, in a historic church, or in a large private home. With all of these sites comes as much variety in the people who are able to conduct your own personal ceremony. The many fine dining establishments as well as excellent catering companies afford numerous choices for the reception. High Country Activities has a great deal of experience with weddings in Summit County and will point you in the direction that best fits your personal taste for your special day.

Whether you are planning a summer or winter wedding, your guests are traveling to Summit County and may want to come for some extra time and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Most of our summer activities and winter activities lend themselves to bookings for large groups. For an adventurous summer group, head out one of our rivers for a Class III to V Whitewater Rafting Trip. If you want to cater to your flower girl at the same time as grandma, a float trip could include everyone. You might want to offer a cattle drive, a Jeep tour, or a group could head out on an ATV tour. For your winter wedding, your guests of all ages could enjoy a snowmobile tour, mushing Huskies on a unique dog sledding tour, or tubing down on one of the lift assisted hills in the area.

The couple booked lodging for their group and High Country Activities booked the rest including transportation to and from the airport with a stop for grocery shopping, ski & snowboard rentals, ski lessons for some of the grandchildren, a spa day, tubing, and a dinner sleigh ride for their actual anniversary celebration. A photographer was also booked to take a family memento of the trip. The couple also had the option to renew their vows. If this group had been visiting in the summer, we could also have filled each day with a different summer activity.
