Marry me and ski for free at Loveland
There's nothing quite as romantic as tying the knot on Valentine's Day, and nothing quite as fun as saying "I do" on a ski slope while dressed in your wedding attire over your thermal wear. Imagine sharing this special moment with hundreds of other couples, either getting married or renewing their vows, all while surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the mountains. To top it off, participating in this annual event, the "Marry Me and Ski for Free" promotion, now in its 32nd year, comes with the added bonus of a free lift pass! The ceremony takes place at the appropriately named Loveland ski area at high noon on Valentine's Day.
Lifts of Love Mount Norquay Ski Resort, Banff
"Lifts of Love" is a unique spin on speed dating, where eligible singles have the opportunity to ride the chairlifts and mingle with new people in a ski resort setting. The concept is simple - each ride up the chairlift serves as a quick speed date, giving individuals just a few minutes to strike up a conversation and see if there's a connection. At the top of the lift, guests have the option to continue their conversation or move on to someone new. The excitement continues with an Après Ski Mixer, featuring a live DJ, at Norquay's Lone Pine Pub, making it the perfect opportunity to make new friends, socialize, and maybe even find love on the slopes!
Hot air balloon ride in Aosta
What could be more romantic than to float over Europe's tallest mountains in a hot air balloon with your loved one. As you float in the air, the only sounds you'll hear are the gentle breaths of the burner that keeps the balloon aloft. This extraordinary and peaceful experience offers a 360-degree view of the Gran Paradiso and the stunning Aosta valley below.
Lapland Snow Village , Levi
If you’ve never exactly played by “the rules”, and like to use special occasions as a chance to tick items off your bucket list, make the Snow Village near Levi a stop on your Valentine’s adventure. Hewn entirely out of ice, the hotel, restaurant, bar, slide and chapel here melt every summer and are carved anew in different and impossibly intricate designs. It’s like Narnia, with Tom Collinses. Bring your beau for winter magic (sans Santa); a romantic weekend on ice that’s lit up like the Northern lights which, incidentally, are just a sleigh ride away.
Tiroler Zugspitz Arena
Tiroler Zugspitze Arena in Austria’s picturesque Tirol region is a great choice for romantics. Besides the extensive skiing on wonderful ski slopes surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery you can choose from a long list of low-key activities where you can really enjoy your time together. A hike by torchlight, a spot of ice skating or perhaps an evening with a good meal and traditional Tirolean entertainment in a mountain hut.
