Romantic Ski Resorts You’ll Both Love

1. Taos Ski Valley

Taos, New Mexico

Romantic ski resorts

While skiing or snowboarding may be at the top of your to-do list in Taos Ski Valley, the resort has so much more to offer. After a day of shredding on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, relax with your loved one at the spa & wellness center for a couples massage, facials, and more. Finish your day with an intimate dinner at 192 at the Blake – an intimate setting with a blend of European and New Mexican decor and cuisine. 

If you’re blessed with an especially sunny day, consider taking a long drive like you may have in your early days as a couple. If conditions permit, visit the scenic High Road to Taos. This 56-mile stretch winds through desert, mountains, forests, and even Pueblo Indian Villages.

2. Telluride Ski Resort

Telluride, Colorado

Romantic ski resorts

Enjoy some romance in the Rockies with a getaway to Telluride Ski Resort. Like many other cities in Colorado, Telluride first began as a mining town. But today, it’s now home to one of the most romantic ski resorts in the U.S.

Take your love to new heights at Alpino Vino, America’s highest-altitude restaurant, standing at a whopping 11,966 feet. Or, take a free 13-minute gondola ride from Telluride to Mountain Village and enjoy stunning alpine views from 10,500 feet.

3. Killington Ski Resort

Killington, Vermont

As the largest ski area in the eastern U.S. with the largest vertical drop in New England, it’s easy to see why Killington Ski Resort is referred to as the “Beast of the East.” But, don’t be put off by its rugged reputation, because Killington is easily one of the most romantic ski resorts in the country.

Warm-up with some small mountain skiing at historic Pico Mountain. Or, jump right into shredding the 73 miles of trails at Killington Resort. After a day on the epic playground, turn up the romance with a visit to the Grand Spa and close out the day with a drink or two at Wobbly Barn – the aprés hotspot of Killington.

4. Windham Mountain

Windham, New York

Romantic ski resorts

For a taste of New York without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, consider a weekend getaway to the slopes of Windham Mountain. Just a two-hour drive from New York City, Windham serves up 732 acres of skiable terrain, 54 trails, and six terrain parks.

And if you need some indoor activities to thaw off your hands and feet, take your pick from indoor golf, theatres, and more.

5. Stowe Mountain Resort

Stowe, Vermont

Romantic ski resorts

Snow, cider, cheese, wine, spas – is there anything else you could need on an enchanting winter getaway? Stowe Mountain Resort offers all of these and more which is why it’s largely regarded as one of the most romantic ski resorts in New England.
