Gorrono Ranch is a truly 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. Recently renovated, today Gorrono is our 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 snowcatdrawn sleigh, winding through spruce forest, with the majestic San Juan Mountains illuminated by a star-filled sky.
At Gorrono Ranch, our superb Executive Chef can accommodate virtually any menu requests, and will be pleased to customize a menu just for you. We pride ourselves in serving the highest quality meats, seafood and produce, using organic and local produce whenever possible, and our menus change with the seasons. Choose your style: Gorrono’s can offer everything from a rustic western BBQ to an exquisite multi-course candle lit dinner with select wines.

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony at San Sophia Overlook and reception/dance at Gorrono Ranch on the Fourth of July. We worked closely with Holli Owen throughout the planning process. Holli is easy to work with and promptly responded to any questions we asked via email or over the phone. We also had several special requests and Holli worked diligently to ensure everything we asked for was taken care of. We worked with Lacey Downing a bit closer to wedding and she was great to work with as well. TSG has everything you need for an amazing wedding from awesome coordinators, gorgeous views, delicious food, and exceptional service staff! As we've caught up with our guests after the wedding they have raved about the venue and food. Honestly we couldn't have dreamed of a more amazing beginning to our happily ever after!
Working with Telluride Ski & Golf and Lacey specifically was very smooth. It was easy selecting our menu, alcohol, setting up our food tasting, etc. Since this was our first time (and hopefully only time ever!) planning a wedding, we had a ton of questions and Lacey always got back to us right away, which we greatly appreciated. The walk through of the venue was also extremely helpful. We absolutely loved our venue, Gorrono Ranch, and wish we could go back to the wedding day and do it again. Looking forward to seeing our professional pictures to see how everything came together that day!
