Up for a snow match? A little personal warmth on a chilly mountain? The chance to cross skis with a potential romantic partner? Then come to Wintergreen Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14, when the “Powder of Love” takes flight with one-of-a-kind chairlift speed dating.

Between 1 and 4 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, a special speed-dating lift line on the Blue Ridge Express will be open to skiers and snowboarders. Parka-clad participants will be paired and expressed to the top of the mountain, armed with a card of conversation starters. If the two skiers don’t fit hand-in-mitten, they simply part ways at the top of the mountain and try to find a downhill date again after the next run. After that, any future binding and un-binding is up to them.

Already have a sweetheart? Check out Wintergreen’s midweek Ski & Ride More Package. The perfect escape for Valentine’s Day, the package includes double-occupancy lodging and lift tickets from 9 am on the day of arrival through 5 pm the day of departure and is valid from Sunday through Thursday nights, excluding February 19-20, 2017. Rates start as low as $89 per person.

Après ski time options at Wintergreen can include a relaxing soak in an outdoor hot tub, dinner for two at one of the resort’s restaurants, or a cozy fireside snuggle. Following an active day on the slopes, consider a couples’ massage at the full-service Wintergreen Spa, which features a full menu of treatments and services.

Wintergreen Resort accommodations include 230 villa-style condominiums and rental homes, from studio suites to nine-bedroom homes, each offering a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable living area, and most come with fireplaces and a balcony or deck.
