Ski for Free: Mountaintop Matrimony at Loveland Ski Area
February 14, 2017 marks the 26th year for Mountaintop Matrimony at Loveland Ski Area in Colorado -- So, you know, if the chairlift speed dating thing goes really well for you...
Every year, the ski area with a name appropriate for celebrating love, turns into a wedding venue for couples who want to tie the knot (or renew their vows) at 12,000 feet on Valentine's Day.
You also get a 2-for-1 lift ticket for a day, so if you were looking for the silver lining in saying 'I do' to lifelong commitment and monogamy, there you go.
'The ceremony is a “mass wedding” done for all couples at the same time and lasts approximately 30 minutes. At the conclusion of the ceremony, all participants and guests will ski or snowboard down the mountain for a casual after party with cake, music and prizes. ' source: skiloveland.com
Pre-registration for this year's event ends February 12. You can sign up here.
