Snow & Romance Goes Hand In Hand Together

Posted: 01/23/13 | By Daniel

In the winter, the ultimate expression of love and romance isn't necessarily red hearts and chocolate covered strawberries, instead it's fluffy, white snow.

What could be more appealing in the months of January and February than a romantic getaway for two in Big Bear Lake?

There's something magical about snow that brings out the best in couples, whether it's a playful game of sprinkling snow at each other or perhaps creating a bubbly snowman together. For Valentine's Day, some couples choose Big Bear because of the wide range of activities they can enjoy together in the white stuff. Big Bear of course offers two quality ski resorts with Snow Summit and Bear Mountain that give romance a different twist from the same old, same old.

How about sliding down a snow-covered hill together? Just hold each other tight and let the inner tube do the rest. Other suggestions are Segway tours in and around Big Bear Village or a zipline excursion in the serene forest. How about this for a passionate spin? Big Bear now offers scenic flights for two in a helicopter or airplane high above the winter landscape below.

The one thing that snow does better than any other element is it sets the perfect tone for romance. The scenic beauty that surrounds includes a hush-quiet forest, peaceful lake and snow-capped mountain vistas. Its scenery is fit for all types of couples, whether it's a first date, honeymoon vacation, or a 20-year wedding anniversary.

Big Bear offers a wide range of overnight accommodations suited just for two. Many of the lodging choices in Big Bear offer indoor hot tubs and wood-burning fireplaces to give the ambiance that extra spark! Add some bubbles to the whirlpool spa, add a log to the crackling fire, light a few candles, pop the cork, and just soak in the special moment together.

All winter, Big Bear offers package deals for romantic couples that include spa and massage just for two. Also, be sure to check out Valentine
