Maple Ski Ridge would love to cater your event. When we cater your event the rental fee varies, if you are
looking to have a tent event, there is an additional fee. If you cater your own party, please make signs stating that this reception is catered by; The _____ & _____ family. Signage needs to place on the buffet tables. You may also hire a caterer of your choice. We ask that your caterer supply signage clearly stating who they are and their contact information for your guest to see. We will work closely with them to ensure your event runs smoothly.  See below for some of our menu options.

 

YOUR CEREMONY
Would you like to hold your ceremony at Maple Ski Ridge in addition to your reception?
“Top of the Ridge Ceremony” Enjoy the view from the top of the ridge overlooking the Capital District and onto
the Green Mountains. Chair lift rides to the top with hay wagon rides down after the ceremony or just a wagon
ride to the top. We will accommodate special guest to and from the top of the hill. Many guests enjoy the walk down the hills after the ceremony - It’s also the perfect place for photos. “At The Base” Hold your wedding ceremony at the base of the hill by the pines, up in the cove or by the fireplace in the lodge.

 

PHOTOS ON THE RIDGE
No matter where your ceremony takes place we can transport you, your bridal party and family to all the best
photo locations. Only you and your photographer can decide what the best views are.

 

YOUR STYLE
One of the pleasures of celebrating at Maple Ski Ridge is the ability to personalize your event. Please keep
decorations as simple as possible - they are to be removed at the end of your day. Your florist, decorator or family may decorate within your 12 hour rental time, or have us bring your vision to life.
