Celebrate love, life and slopeside bliss this Valentine’s Day in Vail. Explore new peaks together, stay active and indulge in elevated culinary creations. Here are three heart-filled date ideas to inspire:
1. Twirl Under Twinkling Lights
A Vail village classic, the picturesque Alderhof Ice Rink at the Arrabelle is a romantic outdoor rink perfect for intimate hand-in-hand laps. Canoodle around stylish fire pits and cozy couches while taking in the fairytale European vibes and iconic ski slopes. The rink is open daily and skate rentals are onsite. Afterward, mosey over to Slope Room at Gravity Haus Vail for the finest alpine bistro flavors from Rocky Mountain farmers and ranchers.
2. KICK BACK IN A CABANA
Rent a private slopeside Gravity Haus Snow Cabana at the base of Golden Peak for the day and come and go as you wish. Ski and ride Vail’s legendary terrain and roll into your posh personal heated igloo for craft cocktails and nosh from the Larkspur Restaurant. Order from full contemporary American and elevated cocktail menus and have lunch and après delivered while you stretch out on plush, comfy furniture. Bonus: GH Members receive 50% off snow cabana bookings!
3. REV YOUR ENGINES
Get out there — way out there, where miles of powdery trails web across majestic Rocky Mountain ridges and valleys. Expert guides from Nova Guides via Uncharted Society take you off the grid and into the backcountry near Vail on high-performance snowmobiles. Ride to high-alpine ridges with views of five ski areas, seven mountain ranges and the Continental Divide. You can ride for one hour or eight hours – it’s up to you to decide how much fun you’d like to have.
Keep the Valentine’s Day buzz going and stay the night in a boutique room at Gravity Haus Vail. Sink into deep comfort, sleep in, have fireside breakfast in bed and book couples spa treatments at The Spa at Dryland Vail, where you’ll enjoy access to indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a sauna, steam room and an extensive menu of nature-infused services.
