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. 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.

The team at Telluride Ski Resort made our wedding the best and most memorable event. Gorrono was perfect for our wedding, with the deck, dinner, & dancing areas, and rustic Colorado feel. The team was absolutely flawless in making this happen, doing everything smoothly behind the scenes while keeping my husband and I posted throughout the process. They continually checked to make sure that we were alright, feeling comfortable and relaxed, with champagne in hand. And when the cake vendor forgot the groom's cake, the venue team worked last minute to try and create us a replica of the planned groom’s cake. That willingness to go above and beyond to make our wedding everything we'd dreamed stood out to me so much as a testament of how hard this team works and how fantastic they truly are :) All of our guests raved about the food, some saying it was the best they've ever had at a wedding. Overall the wedding was fantastic and everything we'd wanted, and that's thanks to the team at Telluride Ski!
