The Observatory is truly a special place. Bridal couples love the ambiance of the Observatory for its remoteness, the millions of blooming wildflowers, the eagles soaring overhead and that feeling of being on top of the world... it rivals that feeling when the officiator finally says “You may now kiss….”

The Observatory can accommodate up to 45 people for an outdoor wedding celebration. If your wedding party exceeds 45 persons, perhaps then The Observatory is the perfect venue for the Rehearsal Dinner or a Post Wedding Day Brunch.

Please contact us to discuss the specifics for your special day.



For a special occasion, or no occasion at all – treat yourself to a memorable night. The Observatory ‘Dinner at Eleven’ is a backcountry dining experience – part adventure, part dining, and absolutely unique.

You'll depart from the town of Telluride or Mountain Village and be whisked away for an easy, guided and exhilarating snowmobile ride to The Observatory via the ghost town of Alta. Perfectly chilled wine with appetizers of choice await. A chef will be on site to prepare and serve a fabulous dinner from a wide range of selections. 

After dinner relax by the enormous fireplace, soak in the hot tub or gaze at the night sky. You'll return to reality the following morning.

This experience accommodates up to 6 people. However, additional guests may be arranged by request. Please see www.dinnerateleven.com for more information… your dining adventure awaits!
