A marriage heading downhill doesn't have to be a bad thing. Now couples who say "I do" at Keystone Resort between November 30, 2009 and November 30, 2010 receive two complementary season Summit Passes good for skiing and riding at Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin for the 2010-2011 season through the new Wedding Pass Promotion.

"The couples who say their vows at Keystone often have strong ties to the area and to skiing," says Paul Jeppson, Vice President of Hospitality at Keystone Resort. "The Keystone Wedding Pass Promotion is a special gift from us and what better way for newlyweds to spend time together than on the slopes at Keystone."

The passes are valid during the ski season following couple's event. Also, Keystone now offers tiered pricing for mountain tip weddings with packages starting at $75 a person.

In addition to the passes, couples who marry at Keystone also receive a night of free lodging with champagne and strawberries, a dedicated catering manager to help plan their big day, discounted lodging rates for their guests, a complimentary six inch one year anniversary cake, and more.

Keystone Resort offers ten iconic Rocky Mountain wedding and reception venues including historic locations like the  Keystone Ranch and Ski Tip Lodge as well as mountain-top venues including The Summit House, Timber Ridge and the Alpenglow Stube as well as other locations around the resort. Green weddings are also an option at the resort allowing couples to limit waste, compost, recycle, and provide sustainable and organic food if desired.

The bride and groom are privy to Keystone's award-wining chefs including Executive Pastry Chef, Ned Archibald. Chef Archibald creates uniquely designed wedding cakes or desserts personalized to the bridge and groom. Ned listens to interests and hobbies, observes dress patterns and invitations, makes notes on life stories and adventures as he plans designs for special wedding cake.
