It's Valentine's Day today and what better way to spend it than on the slopes with your loved one? In the midst of a snowy winter wonderland, with the fresh mountain air and the endorphins flowing, this is the perfect chance to celebrate your relationship with the love of your life. Here are 5 reasons Valentine's Day is best celebrated with a ski holiday.
As we learned in Ed Sheeran’s music video a few years back, a picturesque ski resort in the Alps is just the place to relax and unwind with your other half. Enjoy the winter wonderland, go night skiing on torchlit slopes, catch snowflakes with your tongues, tuck into a fondue together and then snuggle up in a cosy alpine chalet... is there anything more romantic in this world?
Some ski resorts pull out all the stops for Valentine’s Day, others just happen to have opulent luxury hotels available all season long! These hotels offer an incredibly romantic experience to couples who are looking for something to spend their life savings on. If you’ve ever needed an excuse to splash out on a posh hotel, Valentine’s Day 2019 just might be it!
There’s no better day than Valentine’s Day when the endorphins are flowing to introduce your loved one to your favourite sport. Any other day you might get frustrated with each other but today you’re obliged to be in a good mood! Plus, there’s always the promise of a foot massage or a relaxing soak in the hot tub afterward to make it up.
From a romantic soirée in a cable car at Val d’Isère to a festival at Courmayeur in honour of St. Valentine, the patron saint, Valentine’s Day is an excuse for many ski resorts to crank it up a notch and show their best faces in celebration of all the happy couples around the world!
Breakfast in bed? Lunch at a scenic mountain restaurant? A romantic selfie with an alpine backdrop? However you choose to go about it, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to express your love, and the Alps are the perfect place in which to do it! If you need inspiration, check out more ideas for showing your loved one just how much you care about them.
Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
