In Northern Lights one will find harmonious wall surfaces of maple & granite, Inuit art accents, a fireplace lounge and a 12 foot wall of windows that overlooks the mountain. Say your “I dos” under a sparkling sailboat suspended from the vaulted ceiling above you.

The Rose Garden is the outdoor patio of the Thistle Pub & Grille located in the Kinlochen Building at the base of the Buck Quad Lift. If you are envisioning an outdoor ceremony in the winter overlooking the slopes, this location is the one for you! The brick patio has a wooden trellis covered in rose vines and lights to add to the beautiful scenery.
