WSL is a local, family owned business operating in the Roaring Fork Valley from Aspen to New Castle. We specialize in exterior holiday and Christmas lighting installations, wedding and event lighting, and commercial cafe lighting. Carbondale resident Zack Smith opened West Side Lighting for business in 2012 and has been expanding ever since. 


We are the only business in the Roaring Fork Valley that exclusively specializes in exterior holiday, event, and cafe lighting. Everyone involved with West Side Lighting lives by the work hard/play hard doctrine. If we are not working we are outside enjoying our local mountains. We are passionate about what we do and strive every day to do our best. This means paying attention to every detail, clearly communicating with our clients, and executing the job in a safe and timely manor. Almost all of our jobs involve work at height. This may mean working from a ladder, rigging complex ropes on a 70 foot spruce tree or even utilizing specialized equipment to access the exterior of a tall building. We have built a solid reputation in the Roaring Fork Valley for our advanced access techniques and quality of work. All of our staff are experts and safety is our number one concern.  For tree work we use our professional arborist team. We always take our time to protect your trees, home, or business from any damage and we are fully insured.




Our most popular option for holiday lighting on buildings is the energy-efficient LED C9 bulb in a warm white color. For trees we typically use LED "mini-light" string lights in a matching warm white. It looks elegant, classy, and inviting. You can trust us to maximize the visual quality of your home and trees without sacrificing taste and subtlety. For weddings, events and commercial cafe lighting projects we have a wide variety of choices. All of our products are commercial grade and are guaranteed.
