Our Take: As we’ve been saying for years, this is one of the best deals of the seasons and one of the most reliable. Michigan is the big winner in 2012 with a majority of the ski areas. We were definitely disappointed to not see anymore Idaho or Washington ski areas. Guess we need to head down to Colorado.]]>
From the Loveland website:
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. The runs leading back to the base area from this point are beginner and intermediate. The after party will start at 1:30pm at the base of Loveland Basin.
Guests to the wedding still have to pay the $59 daily lift ticket price. For those of you looking for a lot less commitment, head to Mad River Glen, Vermont where all you have to do is kiss your honey at the ticket booth window and each of you get $14 tickets. Wait, cheap tickets and I don’t have to get married. Phew.]]>
