Situated 20 minutes south of Livingston and less than 35 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, the new Sage Lodge in Pray features 50 guest rooms in the form of a 34-room lodge and four 2,800-square-foot cabins that sleep up to 16. Sage Lodge’s event facility, The Barn, includes the Yellowstone Room that can host receptions for up to 190 and three smaller breakout rooms with space for up to 30 each. The Barn’s indoor-to-outdoor design allows events to spill onto the Lodge Lawn and Yellowstone Lawn. Amenities at the property include a full-service spa, more than a mile of Yellowstone River access, hiking and biking trails, and more. Sage Lodge also offers unique adventures á la carte, including tours of tours of Yellowstone National Park, horseback riding, llama treks, snowshoeing and more as well as multiday itineraries and all-inclusive programs such as fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, alpine skiing and riverbank yoga.

On the culinary side, The Grill, led by executive chef Brian Sullivan, serves a menu featuring craft cocktails, wood-fired meats and regional fish, with most of the cooking done over an open wood-fire grill. The restaurant has seating for up to 80 inside and an additional 30 on a covered patio overlooking the Yellowstone River. In the main lodge, The Fireside Room seats 50 inside and 24 on the patio and serves daily breakfast for guests, brunch on the weekends, and an all-day menu for quick bites and beverages. Sullivan and his team also offer programming for meetings and events, including cooking classes.

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.
