The Lowdown Venue Setting
Gorrono Ranch is a unique mountain venue perched on the side of the San Juan mountain range. Named after the family that built the ranch, Gorrono was a Basque sheep herder’s farm in the 1800’s. Gorrono is a mid-mountain ski lodge and our main dining venue for skiers and snowboarders. During the summer months, Gorrono is accessed by a mountain road and is a popular choice for destination weddings and corporate dinners. Gorrono has multiple outdoor decks—one that is typically used as the ceremony and reception site, with the Wilson Mountain Range as its backdrop. In addition to the main lodge, there are two smaller historic cabins that can be used as private bride & groom dressing rooms, gaming rooms, a venue for scotch/cigar/wine tastings, or your own cabin for private winter luncheons during the ski season. Within the main lodge, there are two large dining rooms, cozy stone fireplaces and plenty of space for bands, DJ’s and dancing. Gorrono can accommodate groups up to 200 guests.
For a truly singular winter dining event, Gorrono Ranch can transform into a private mountain lodge exuding rustic elegance, its large stone fireplaces crackling a warm welcome. Guests are transported up the mountain in a snowcat-drawn sleigh, winding through the spruce forest, with the majestic San Juan Mountains illuminated by a star-filled sky.
