Forget the mile-high club. Is there anything more romantic than making out on the chairlift? Picture fir trees, fresh powder and fogged-up goggles…

Whether your idea of a good time is the après ski or a double-black diamond, US ski resorts love catering to couples.

Here are four resorts that offer ski holidays catered for you and your better half.

Plattekill Mountain, New York

Best for: Convenience and complete privacy.

Just a three-hour drive from NYC, Plattekill Mountain is a Catskills escape you can easily enjoy in a weekend. Its unique indie vibes are the result of being one of very few family-owned ski resorts in the region.

 									colorado								,  									michigan								,  									montana								,  									resorts								,  									romance								,  									skiing								,  									Travel								,  									upstate new york

Rent the whole mountain for a day at the Plattekill Mountain Resort, NY.

Patricia Woznick.

This isn’t the Rockies or even the Adirondacks — there are only 38 runs serviced by four lifts — but that’s good news for couples looking to have an entire mountain to themselves. Yes, for $7,500 you can rent out everything, including the snowtubing operations, for a day. Since the price includes up to 200 lift tickets, why not make it a double date, many times over?

Rates: Lift tickets start at $59 per day. Area lodging starts at $79 per night.

Mount Bohemia, Michigan

Best for: Expert skiers wanting extremes.

 									colorado								,  									michigan								,  									montana								,  									resorts								,  									romance								,  									skiing								,  									Travel								,  									upstate new york

Follow up a day on the experts-only slopes of Mount Bohemia in Michigan with Nordic plunge pools and sauna.

Chris Guibert

Expect virgin powder at Mount Bohemia, a funky resort nicknamed “Poor Man’s Japan” located in Michigan’s unruly Upper Peninsula, where Mother Nature dumps 273 inches of snow each year.

“Experts only,” read the signs, warning skiers that runs aren’t groomed and beginners aren’t welcome.

There are only two chairlifts servicing 900 feet of vertical, but the backcountry options are endless.

In December, Mount Bohemia will open a sister property, Voodoo Mountain, offering the first commercial snowcat east of the Rockies, where skiers ride in a 20-person vehicle to a remote mountain for pristine skiing. Also new this year: a traditional Nordic spa.

Couples can shock their systems together by doing a circuit including Michigan’s largest outdoor hot tub, a polar plunge pool and an icy waterfall.

Rates: Lift tickets start at $85 per day. Lodging ranges from $60 per night for a hostel bed to $400 per night for a yurt.

Big Sky Resort, Montana

Best for: Celeb sightings and long runs.

 									colorado								,  									michigan								,  									montana								,  									resorts								,  									romance								,  									skiing								,  									Travel								,  									upstate new york

Enjoy day-long runs on perfect pistes followed by celeb spotting at Big Sky Resort in Montana.

Tomas Cohen

Big Sky Resort has so many runs you can stay two weeks and still never lay tracks on all of them. Its 5,850 skiable acres are serviced by 39 chairlifts pimped out with extras like heated seats and weatherproof bubbles.

Big Sky is also currently building North America’s fastest chairlift system. Still, it’s unlikely to be as speedy as the zip lines between runs. Competitive partners can race each other on the double line.
Big Sky’s Mountain Village doesn’t have Aspen’s après ski, but the mountain is shared with the exclusive Yellowstone Club with A-listers and avid skiers like Tom and Gisele and Justin and Jessica, the latter rumored to be moving here full-time.

Rates: Lift tickets start at $74 per day. Lodging starts at $179 per night and includes the new Montage Big Sky, opening in December.

Purgatory Resort, Colorado

Best for: Low budgets and beginner runs.

 									colorado								,  									michigan								,  									montana								,  									resorts								,  									romance								,  									skiing								,  									Travel								,  									upstate new york

Find your slice of heaven at a divinely low price in Purgatory, Colo.

Scott DW Smith

There’s a saying at this underrated Colorado resort named after a nearby creek: “If this is purgatory, heaven can wait.” Previous owners tried renaming it to Durango Mountain Resort, but that just offended locals, so it’s now back to the original.

Located just 30 minutes north of Durango in the San Juan Mountains, Purgatory gets more than 21 feet of annual snowfall. Its 105 trails skew beginner to intermediate, making it a great place to learn. But what really distinguishes it is the price.

 									colorado								,  									michigan								,  									montana								,  									resorts								,  									romance								,  									skiing								,  									Travel								,  									upstate new york

Purgatory Resort offers “micro weddings” for a ceremony with a view.

Scott DW Smith

For three years now it’s been named Trip Advisor’s best value ski resort, and all kids 12 and under ski free, every day.

In addition to traditional wedding packages, Purgatory also offers “micro weddings” Monday through Thursday.

Rates: Lift tickets start at $39 per day. Lodging starts at $99 per night.
