Weddings & Group Events

The Wallowa Lake Tramway Summit on Mt. Howard is a beautiful location for your wedding!

The Tramway offers a site with a wedding arch (which can be decorated by the wedding group) and up to 25 guest seats. Additional standing room is available for weddings with more than 25 guests, please call so we can advise.

We can assist in finding indoor and outdoor facilities for receptions and a list of caterers. However, the Edelweiss Building at the tram base area is no longer a suitable alternative. Our rates for the wedding are $150 and each guest must purchase a gondola ticket for the day of the event. Special group rates are available.

Common Questions

Q: How long will it take to get my group to the summit?
A: The tram has 19 rotating full 4-passenger cabins which embark every 90 seconds for the 14-minute ride to the summit. A group of 25 will take around 30 minutes to all arrive at the summit depending on waiting time to load. Please inform your guests to form in groups of four to expedite getting your guests to the wedding site in a minimal amount of time. Also, guests are welcome to go up early during our standard operating hours to avoid a last-minute rush.

Q: Which dates are available?
A: The venue is available from early June through September. Contact us with your requested date at and we will respond ASAP. We also have information for alternatives available for catering, reception venues, performers, and wedding venues for inclement weather.
