Has love taken your breath away? Feel even fainter today at 12,000 feet, when Loveland Ski Area invites people to participate in the 23rd annual Mountaintop Matrimony. The mass wedding and vow-renewal ceremony takes place at noon on the top of Chair #2 at Loveland Basin, overlooking the valley just outside of the recently renovated Ptarmigan Roost cabin.
Complete with wedding desserts and a cider toast, this ceremony is the real deal, attracting around 75 couples each year. "It is just a fun day out on the mountain with the one you love, and people love the idea of skiing and being together," says Loveland Ski Area's Duncan Maxwell. Brides and grooms are inspired to dress in "ski-wedding" attire for the frosty affair and will have a chance to win a Loveland honeymoon-getaway-weekend prize package.
