Looking for a destination wedding in the heart of the Rocky Mountains? You’ve found the place! The Black Diamond Lodge offers on-site lodging, and full service coordination for the couples looking for an all-inclusive experience, but also offers flexibility for couples looking to plan their own unique event.
Located just 45 minutes from Downtown Durango in the beautiful Hermosa Valley near Purgatory Ski Resort, The Black Diamond Lodge aims to provide a ski lodge, event venue and bar for wedding parties, families and businesses looking to create memories in the mountains!
The Black Diamond Lodge, formerly The Silverpick Lodge, transitioned ownership in 2022 and the new owners are excited to continue the memory-building, celebration-having legacy of the past few decades. With new offerings and a brand new killer staff, the building is getting a full remodel prior to the 2022 wedding season to launch into the summer with a fresh, clean updated venue.
"We held our annual staff party at the Black Diamond Lodge this year and it was wonderful. The lodge is beautiful and spacious. They had a beautiful Christmas tree at the entrance making the entire lodge smell of pine, which was a perfect touch for our holiday party. We rented out the entire lodge, which was a great perk, so our employees could relax, have fun, and have the option to stay overnight rather than drive back to town. They have a great game room that our younger staff got to enjoy! The rooms are super comfortable and nicely designed. The staff was very nice and helpful with any questions that may have come up. "

"Absolutely beautiful venue!! We had an event of 100+ people for one evening, plus about 30 people (adults + children) to stay in the lodge for an additional couple of days. From check in to check our BDL staff was courteous, professional, and took care of our needs/concerns. A+ for keeping the coffee pots filled! With the proper planning, we were able to enjoy all the surrounding areas (Purgatory Ski), as well as feel at home and have lots of fun with all of the provided amenities. As far as our ceremony, Amber took care of us, and stayed in communication with all parties involved to make our wedding go as smoothly as possible. We are happy to have BDL make our big day beautiful and memorable. "

"We hosted a family ski trip at the Black Diamond Lodge this year for our extended family (16) and the lodge was exactly what was advertised. Everyone LOVED it, there is plenty of room for everyone, plenty of common places for each group to socialize and hang out. The kids loved playing hide and seek throughout the lodge and the adults enjoyed the basement seating and game room. The sleeping arrangements were awesome! It’s just a short 2 minute trip to the ski lodge and Josh was amazing! He was friendly and accommodating and made our experience at the lodge even more wonderful. Amber made the whole booking process easy, she is very responsive and answered all my questions in a professional, friendly and timely manner. She even stayed and greeted our first guest when they arrived before us! I believe the staff went over and above any expectations we had to make our stay enjoyable. If you have a large family and want the perfect place to gather, I highly recommend Black Diamond Lodge! We will definitely be staying again next December. "
