Love is in the air, especially on Valentine's Day. A romantic dinner, chocolates, a dozen roses, an "I love you" to your sweetheart. But you could give those gifts anywhere. A romantic dinner at Keystone's Alpenglow Stube or the Ski Tip Lodge, or the sleigh ride to Deer Valley's Fireside Dining or Beano's Cabin at Beaver Creek. Now we're talking mountainside romance for skiers.
But there's more to mountain loving than a romantic dinner. Cupid's working his matchmaking magic on many a mountain--and we're not talking mountain top proposals and weddings, though those are perfect ways to share the skiing love. Check out these Valentine's Day events where you could say that love is on the chair.
Everyone else has a Valentine's Day date, but you don't. Try Keystone's chairlift speed dating, the resort's way of helping singles find someone to ski with. And even if it's not love at first sight, at least you'll find someone to make turns with.
Missed one of the weekend's Valentine-themed foot races? Sharpen your skis and take to the skiing race course at Northstar. The resort has turned its EpicMix Racing course into the Cupid's Course Valentine's Fun Race for Feb. 14. Intermediate and advanced skiers and riders can race down this free course--plus the first 100 racers receive a special Valentine's Day commemorative pin.
Write a love letter to your sweetheart, but while you're at it, write one to Park City Mountain Resort. Or if you can't share your love with a Valentine, this is your way to do it. Park City Mountain Resort wants to hear stories from its skiers and riders--what you love about it, what your memories are, what you've discovered on the mountain, what you want to share in a love letter. The resort turns 50 next season and plans to collect these "Love Letters," organize them by decade and share them throughout its golden anniversary.
