Snowbird requests that wedding vendors are selected from their Preferred Vendors List. If a vendor is selected that is not on the Preferred List, Snowbird asks to be notified in advance. Vendors must provide proof of worker’s compensation insurance and proof of adequate general liability coverage while on Snowbird’s premises. They must also comply with all other requirements that Snowbird deems appropriate, in its sole discretion, regarding use of function space, facilities and use of Snowbird services. Damage to Snowbird premises by the Group’s Vendors will be the Group’s responsibility.

The Summit Venue Coordinator:

Weddings at The Summit are required to secure a Wedding Planner selected from the Snowbird Preferred Vendor List.

We provide all of the onsite food and beverage. An outside wedding cake may be delivered from a licensed bakery. An outside wedding cake fee will be charged per guest. There is no additional cake cutting fee if the wedding cake is provided by the Snowbird Bakery.

Just More Details:

Tram trips will increase during guest load up times, then remain on the hour and half hour until the end of the wedding event for tram departures.
