A happy couple celebrates Valentine’s Day at Mount Snow last year.
Dover– The procession is a ride up a chairlift, the altar is a podium positioned at the pinnacle of a heart painted on the snow, and formal footwear is replaced with ski or snowboard boots – that is the scene couples wanting to renew their vows, or tie the knot for the first time, will enjoy this Valentine’s Day during Cloud Nine Nuptials at the summit of Mount Snow Resort. It is the second year of the event, which is free to participants, following the success of the inaugural edition in 2012, during which 17 couples renewed their vows and two other couples officially got married.

The ceremony will be conducted by local justice of the peace Cyndee Frere, followed by a reception in the Summit Lodge with cake, coffee, and hot chocolate. A dozen adventurous couples have already RSVP’d to take part in the festivities and Mount Snow Events Manager Tim Dolan expects to hear from many more in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day.

“We would love for Cloud Nine Nuptials to grow and attract dozens of people every year,” says Dolan. “Last Valentine’s Day we saw how such a simple event can turn into something very special and memorable for our guests, which means a lot.”

Mount Snow is also offering a lift ticket deal for Valentine’s Day: two for $49 when purchased in advance online.
