Romantic Ski Breaks with your Valentine
The middle of February is when our thoughts turn to love, when we acknowledge the passion that burns within us and we lavish time and attention on those we hold dear. There’s also Valentine’s day, so if your significant other loves their skis as much as you love yours why not bring them along and make your February ski trip a romantic one?
Whichever romantic resort you choose, it’ll be chilly on the slopes, so pack your trusty S’No Queen designer thermals and jet off on an adventure with your significant other.
France – Megève
With a medieval appearance, cobble streets and beautiful views of Mont Blanc it’s no surprise that Megève was the setting for Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn’s characters to meet there in the movie Charade.
The resort was purpose-built as a riposte to St Moritz in Switzerland, so as you’d expect, there’s a charming village-like feel with plenty to keep you distracted when you’re not skiing. The Apres is a little subdued though.
The lifts can be a little on the slow side, so make sure you’re wearing your S’No Queen thermals and snuggle up to your significant other while you enjoy the view.
Switzerland – Zermatt
With picture postcard chalets, spectacular views of the Matterhorn, more chocolate than you could possibly eat in a lifetime and plenty of places to dine and shop, you’ll have plenty to look forward to once you’ve both got your fill of the days’ powder.
As with any world class resort, there are slopes suitable for all skill levels, so you’re not going to get bored either on the pistes or off them.
While you’re at Zermatt, why not check out the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge? At nearly 500 metres long and nearly 90 metres above ground level, it’s the World’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge and links Zermatt and Grächen. Even if you’re not afraid of height, it’s a perfect excuse to hold hands!
Italy – Cortina d’Ampezzo
A spectacular and quintessentially Italian locale that’s provided a backdrop for many a movie, Cortina d’Ampezzo, affectionately known as ‘The Queen of The Dolomites’ will no doubt feel like home to S’No Queens everywhere.
Despite a distinctly upmarket feel, it’s not as expensive as you’d think and many of the resort’s visitors are just as interested in the resort itself as they are the skiing, meaning that the slopes never feel crowded and if you’re sporting your S’No Queen designer thermals, you’ll never be afraid to show off your style.
