Loveland Ski Area asks couples to get hitched on the hill with 20th annual Marry Me & Ski Free day

Loveland Ski Area will host the 20th Annual Marry Me & Ski Free Mountaintop Matrimony on Monday, Feb. 14. The mass wedding ceremony will be held at noon on Valentine's Day at 12,050 feet outside the Ptarmigan Roost Cabin.

More than 75 couples are pre-registered to get married or renew their vows high on the Continental Divide at this Loveland tradition. Following the ceremony, couples, often dressed in full wedding attire, will make their first tracks together down the mountain to a casual reception complete with a champagne toast, wedding cake and music.

Harry Heilman, registered minister with the Universal Life Church, will conduct the ceremony at the top of Chair 2. Couples that pre-register on or before Feb. 12 will receive 2 for 1 lift tickets and lunches for the event and free admission into the reception, which will be at 1:30 p.m. on the patio of Loveland Basin.

"We are proud that so many people have decided to get married on our hill over the past 19 seasons," said John Sellers, marketing director. "Some people think china and platinum are good gifts to celebrate 20 years, but we are partial to snow, and fortunately have plenty to share with everyone this Valentine's Day."

The reception will begin at 1:30 p.m. on the patio at Loveland Basin with Summit County's KSMT the Mountain emceeing the festivities. The highlight of the reception is the best dressed contest, where couples show off their ski-wedding attire and compete against other couples for prizes from Loveland Ski Area, the Hotel Chateau Chamonix, Coors, The Euro Grill and KSMT the Mountain. Guests and couples that did not pre-register for the reception can purchase lunch and admission to the reception for $15.
