Canyon give us the best attention! The food was so good, my guest were talking about for days. I will pick canyon a thousand times, they were caring and make us feel relax through the process. Thanks you guys for everything you did for us! ❤️

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Canyon Ski Resort in August 2022 and it was absolutely amazing. Robyn and Aaron were both very helpful throughout the entire process, not to mention they are the loveliest people! We got so many compliments on the food and venue! The bartenders were fabulous and were able to shift gears quickly when the keg we brought in wasn’t working. Great value for your money – you will never feel like you are overspending because it’s all so wonderful! Highly recommend!

We are so glad that we chose to have our wedding at Canyon! Every one of the staff that we had the pleasure of dealing with was friendly and beyond accommodating. Canyon let us plan the wedding of our dreams and did everything they could to help make that happen. The venue was terrific, the food was heaven and the scenery was stunning! Our guests commented on everything from how amazing the venue was, to the delicious food, the wonderful bar and wait staff and the beautiful location. Our day was absolutely perfect! Thank you all!

August 2022

We had our wedding August 13 2022- it was so beautiful. Canyon was the perfect spot, it felt like a destination wedding without the price tag. Robyn and Aaron were awesome to deal with and were able to answer any questions we had leading up to the big day. I had zero stress the whole time and the food was beyond amazing!!

August 2022

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at Canyon Ski Resort. The day of was incredible, and went off without a hitch. The staff were attentive and approachable, the food was EXCELLENT, and the venue was beautiful. It was absolutely beyond anything I had envisioned. The entire process of planning was so easy – made seamless by Robyn and Aaron. They were responsive, flexible, always professional, and went out of their way to accommodate any and all requests to make it the most special day for us. My husband and I had the best day of our lives, and we got so many great compliments from our guests. Some even said it was the best wedding they’ve been to! From the bottom of our hearts thank you!!

August 2022

Everyone loved the food and the venue offered everything we needed. Perfect day!

July 2022

The staff was spectacular to work with from the first tour to the big day. They were flexible, accommodating and professional. We went big and they nailed it. This is even more impressive as it was the busiest wedding weekend of the year, (3 weddings in 3 days) and we felt like we were the 100% focus. The venue is beautiful and the food… My god the food. I’m an admitted food snob and it was absolutely delicious.

July 2022

Our wedding day was perfect ! Canyon ski is a great place to book your wedding.
We had our wedding there in June of 2022. The price is affordable, the food is delicious and the staff was wonderful.

June 2022

My husband and I’s wedding was almost a year ago now and we sill have not stopped talking about how absolutely perfect our day was. The venue, staffing, food and MORE was phenomenal and I would recommend Canyon to anyone getting married!

June 2022

This is a hidden little gem in Central Alberta. Absolutely beautiful location for photos and I love that I was able to have a the ceremony and reception at the same venue (ceremony was outside next to the ski lodge). The owners are incredibly personable, down to earth and easy to work with. The catering company the venue uses were great! Food looked and tasted amazing, all my guests were impressed. We did not use them for the cake/desserts though so I cannot speak to that. Overall I would definitely recommend this venue, it is very affordable especially for how gorgeous the location is, you don’t even feel like you’re in small town central Alberta!

June 2022

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.

October 2021

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.

October 2021

We had such a great experience getting married at Canyon Ski Resort! It’s truly an oasis and does not feel like you are in central AB. Pricing is very reasonable in comparison to other venues in the area. We especially liked that catering and bartending were provided on site so we didn’t have to hire additional vendors for these services! I would recommend paying for an extra bartender to help manage drink line as it can get backed up. Robyn and Aaron were great to work with and very accommodating! We wanted to give our guests the opportunity to stay on site and hang out between ceremony and reception and the large patio was a perfect place for people to sit and visit. They also set up a bar for us on the patio which was perfect!
I would definitely recommend!!

Canyon is such a beautiful venue! It holds such value to my friends and family. And it’s truly stunning. Canyon was beyond accommodating and worked with us to ensure the day was exactly what we imagined.

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.

September 2020

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!

September 2020

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!

July 2020

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!!
