2014 Summer Weddings & Events Keep Mount Washington hopping

Warm, sunny weather made for a pleasant summer season for Mount Washington Alpine Resort.

It also made for some record-breaking wedding memories for close to 30 couples and their entourages.

“We hosted a record number of weddings,” said Don Sharpe, Director of Business Development and Marketing at the Resort. “We’re becoming known as a popular place for marriage celebrations.”

Nearly 30 wedding parties took place in the summer, with both the Alpine Lodge and Raven Lodge being used. As a result of such a busy year, Sharpe said the Resort will have a couple of dedicated photo locations for the summer of 2015.

All the summer events, such as Tapped, the Alpine Wine and Food Festival, Bearclaw Inv. Mountain Bike Event and Mudd, Sweat and Tears Adventure Race were sold out.

The Mile High Chairlift also saw increased business because of the weather. “We’ll look at doing some new things next year, stand by for what those will be,” he said. The Resort also spent $200,000 on summer grooming to prepare runs for winter snow.
