    Highly recommend!

    From start to finish, Robyn and the entire team at Canyon were nothing short of AMAZING for our wedding day. Not only was Canyon the best value for our dollar in comparison to other wedding venues in the area, their service went above and beyond anything we ever expected. They were extremely flexible in our everchanging wedding plans throughout all the pandemic restrictions of 2020/2021. Robyn was also extremely personable, professional, and seemed to be genuinely interested in helping make our day the best it could be. She answered all of my crazed emails in a timely fashion, offered great suggestions, and really made sure everything went according to plan the day-of. There were so many things that happened behind the scenes that I didn't even have to worry about because Robyn and her team just ensured things got done!
    The meal options were endless, and the food really delicious. We loved that we could curate what we wanted to have served on our day. The bartenders were able to mix up signature cocktails of our choosing, and kept the drinks going all night long. All night they filled up wine/water glasses, cleared tables, washed rented glassware, etc... all things that were never expected but truly appreciated!

    We had the best day, and I can attribute so much of that to Robyn, and the entire team at Canyon.

    Canyon Ski Resort's reply:

    Courtney, we are so happy you guys had just the BEST DAY here! From the entire Canyon Team we are so happy you trusted us through these crazy covid times to plan the most GORGEOUS wedding. It was one that truly dreams are made of! It was a very special day and a reflection of all your hard work. Thank you for choosing Canyon and we hope you stay in touch!

    Incredible!

    We were married at Canyon Ski Hill on July 25th, 2020. It was the most perfect day! The Canyon staff was so incredible and FUN to work with. They truly helped our vision become reality. They were so flexible and understanding. We didn’t require a ton of decor because the venue is already so beautiful. The food is absolutely delicious, and they are super accommodating of allergies. The bar staff was super flexible, fun, and FAST, there was never a line up. They were accommodating to all our vendors and very helpful! We didn’t have to involve ourselves in setup or takedown, and we had zero stress. Canyon staff and our vendors did everything, and we were able to enjoy our wedding weekend. I could honestly go on and on! If you are looking for a place to say “I Do” - look no further! You will truly feel like royalty!! 😍😍

    Thanks Ashton, you and Marcus were a dream to work with as well. We wish you many years of Happiness. Stay in touch!

    A Truly Perfect Venue for a Special Day

    Canyon was truly the perfect venue for our wedding. It was a cool fall day, all the fireplaces were lit making for a cozy, romantic ambience for our ceremony and dinner. The south room is a beautiful room for a wedding ceremony, especially with the fireplace lit and burning gently. The bar room made for a cozy games area for guests to mingle while we were out taking photographs. Canyon is in such a beautiful spot along the river. With the fall colours the places for photos is limitless. Many of our guests comment on what a perfect place it was to have a wedding. Since our wedding was on Thanksgiving Sunday we choose the Turkey Dinner for our meal and it did not disappoint! It was delicious!
    Robyn and her staff were professional, efficient and genuine. Through out the ever-changing Covid world, I always had complete confidence in Robyn to navigate the way for us. It was a beautiful day and Canyon Ski Hill will always hold a special place in our hearts.

    Canyon Ski Resort's reply:

    Jaylene, thank you so much for your kind words. You and Al were such a pleasure to work with and your day was equally as beautiful! Im so glad you were happy with how everything turned out! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! Canyon Family

    Wish it had gone better for me

    I wish I could give this venue a better review but my experience was a bit disappointing. I paid for an elopement package. The ceremony was to take place outside with the understanding that it would be moved in doors if the weather didn’t cooperate and it decided to rain. Although we were fortunate that it didn’t rain, the wasps were absolutely horrendous. I’m talking TONS of them which got even worse when the food and drinks were brought out. My brother asked if we could move in doors but he was told that they couldn’t accommodate that. Unfortunately, many of my guests chose to leave early because they were that bad and I’m honestly shocked that no one got stung. I can acknowledge that the venue can’t control the wasps, however, I felt they should have given us the option to move in doors or should have treated the area prior. At the very least, a heads up would have been nice so people could have brought raid or something to keep them away. Beyond that, the arch provided wasn’t the one requested, and the area wasn’t fully set up by the time my husband arrived to decorate at the agreed upon time.

    These concerns have been passed on to canyon and I will say that the staff were nice to deal with, however, I feel it is necessary to share as the wasps really ruined my day. Hopefully future couples can inquire about this issue prior to booking. I also found there to be a lack of support on the actual day of our wedding. I inquired prior if staff would be available to help direct people on where to go, direct my husband how to get to the first look spot etc. When I arrived, no staff were present to greet me. I had no idea if my groom was at the first look spot yet or where I was suppose to go. My limo driver had to go find someone to give us that information. My wedding commissioner was also the one who directed the ceremony. It just felt like not as much effort was put in because our elopement was only 3 hours instead of a full size wedding.

    Benefits to this venue is it is a really beautiful spot with many incredible spots to get photos taken. I chose this venue because of the many wonderful reviews they received but it just wasn’t the greatest experience for me.

    Canyon Ski Resort's reply:

    Hey Sawyer,

    We are really sorry the day didn’t go as well as we had hoped for! The wasps made for quite an unfortunate hurdle and we are really sorry for the effect they had on your time at our resort. We have since made adjustments on how to better prepare for such events in the future as this had never happened before!

    As these elopements are still relatively new, we really do appreciate you sharing your experience and your review will definitely be used to help us make adjustments to improve.

    Thank you for the kind words, and we were so happy to see some of the gorgeous photos from your day!

    Hoping for the best for you and Brandon!

    Excellent choice for Wedding Venue

    Robyn and the team at Canyon Ski Resort were more than accommodating to our wedding that we had on July 3rd. Not only was her team incredibly professional, they were able to work alongside us to make sure the day went by perfect, even with the ever changing COVID restrictions. The food was incredible (Would highly recommend the Swine and Dine option) the staff and bartenders were friendly, and the venue was kept in amazing order for all our needs.

    Could not be happier with our venue choice and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a "mountain style getaway" for their wedding!

    Canyon Ski Resort's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words! It was truly an honour to be able to work with you to plan the most amazing day! So very glad you were happy with how everything turned out.

    We wish you all the best in your future as husband and wife!

    Fantastic!

    We were married at Canyon Ski Hill on September 12th, 2020. Our rehearsal evening and wedding day went smoothly without any glitches. The staff at Canyon were professional, compassionate and willing to do what was needed to make our day spectacular. The venue is beautiful and well taken care of; perfect for either and indoor or outdoor ceremony. The reception dinner was amazing! I would recommend this venue to anyone.

    Absolutely Perfect!

    William & I had an elopement wedding at Canyon Ski on Sept 11. It was the most perfect day! Absolutey beautiful!
    The venue was idyllic & has been a great talking point with friends & family. The surroundings will make you feel like you’re in a mountains.
    We wanted somewhere different & special to set us on the road for married life. CANYON SKI RESORT in Red Deer was that place, which will be forever in our memories.
    Not just the venue is gorgeous, the staff was so incredible! Robyn went beyond our expectation. She’s soooo nice and very kind. She recommended us the best photographer in town- CANDY KOATED STUDIO & the best JP- BARB FENSKE. They were great & amazing people.
    If you’re looking to elope, this is the best place! The food! The staff and perfect venue!

    Canyon Ski Resort's reply:

    Thanks so much for your review! We are so happy you choose us and that the day was beyond your expectations! It was a pleasure to work with you both and we hope to see you on the slopes!
