If you are looking for a proposal idea, consider U.S. ski resorts as a possible destination. Wherever you live, you are likely to have ski resort within a fairly close proximity. From Massanutten and Wintergreen in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to Breckenridge in Colorado, there are ample opportunities for snowy mountain adventures this winter.
Best Places to Propose at a Ski Resort
1. By the Fireside
It doesn’t get much more romantic than sitting together in front of a crackling fire together. Whether you are bundled up and sipping hot chocolate together in a private corner inside the ski lodge or cuddling in your own private chalet, a proposal by firelight offers warmth and ambiance for your winter wedding proposal. Just bring an inexpensive diamond engagement ring to the U.S. ski resort of your choice to set the mood.
2. On the Slopes
One of the best places to propose at a ski resort is on the slopes. Although the thick ski gloves make it a good idea to leave the inexpensive diamond engagement ring home until later, there are many different ski slope proposal thrills to be had. Perhaps holding hands while riding up the side of the mountain together on a ski lift, perhaps standing at the top of a slope ready to head down together, or maybe even shouting out your words of love while racing downhill in the middle of a run appeal to you for your ski resort proposal.
3. At the Spa
Many ski resorts offer a wide variety of services besides simply ski rentals and ski slopes. From exercise facilities to excellent food to spas, a trip to a ski resort is often a full body experience. For a more sensual proposal experience, consider popping the question in the hot tub or during a couple’s massage.
