Chair Lift Speed Dating, Champagne Breakfast Sleigh Rides, Chocolate Buffets, and Candlelit Gondola Rides Make for a Romance-filled Valentine’s Day at Big White Ski Resort

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, January 22, 2013 – You’re watching the sunset over the Monashee Mountain Range from your private hot tub at Big White Ski Resort. The pink and purple hues illuminate the sky as you sip from a glass of Okanagan wine, relaxing after a day spent enjoying powder filled slopes. From luxurious accommodation options to locally inspired dining options, candlelit gondola rides to speed dating on chair lifts, Big White mixes some classic romantic activities with a few unusual options for this Valentine’s Day:

Bullet Chair Speed Dating – For skiers and boarders looking for love, jump on the Bullet Express Chair this February 14 and see if you can make a love connection by the time you make it to the top. At the very least you may find a new riding partner. The speed dating takes place from 2 - 3pm. Suitors can simply head to the Bullet Chair to take part.

Chocolate Decadence Buffet - Back by popular demand, the Chocolate Decadence Buffet will be on offer to all the lovebirds in the Moose Lounge from 5-8pm.  Enjoy a fine array of chocolate goodies including truffles, petit fours, fondue, and mousse parfait for only $10 per person.

Champagne Breakfast Sleigh Ride – Start Valentine’s Day off right with a romantic 30-minute ride amongst the snow laden trees to a woodland cabin where you’ll be served champagne, strawberries and a buffet style breakfast. Tours start at 10am and are $45pp.

Romantic Gondola Ride – Enjoy a glass of something bubbly and indulge on some chocolate covered strawberries with that someone special as you step into Big White’s gondola of love. Lionel Richie will be crooning through the speakers and candles cast a warm glow as you head from the Village Centre down to Happy Valley. The rides are $18 per couple, or are free if you have pre-booked a dinner reservation at the Kettle Valley Steakhouse.

Smores for Two – Play the “Mr. and Mrs.” table quiz at the Globe Café and Tapas Bar as you tuck into their signature “tabletop smores” - designed for two to share. A twist on the Canadian Classic, their marshmallows are house made and served with both a white and dark chocolate Kahlua ganache. Or if you’re still looking for that special someone then join one of their innovative “Singles Table for Six” where they give you a free bottle of wine to get the conversation flowing.

2 for 1 on Oysters – The Kettle Valley Steakhouse is offering 2 for 1 on their oysters, or a 3-course prix fixe menu featuring a glass of Blue Mountain Brut, a Beet and Duck Proscuitto Salad, 8oz Filet Mignon and a rich Chocolate Torte for dessert at $65pp. These are both available on Friday Feb 14 and Saturday Feb 15.
