Big fat flakes fell on 63 couples who decided to get married or renew their vows on Valentine’s Day. It’s an annual tradition at Loveland ski area. It is the 21st year for the Annual Mountaintop Matrimony service. Skiers and riders in wedding dresses, tuxes, and various other colorful and crazy winter wear made their way up to Ptarmigan Roost Cabin for the mass wedding, which is held at 12,050 feet in altitude.

The outfits were very lively, especially because of the best-dressed contest. The service took about 30 minutes after which everyone who said “I do” skied or snowboarded down for cake and music to celebrate the special day. Harry Heilman, Registered Minister with the Universal Life Church, conducted the ceremony, as he does every year, for all couples at the same time. 15 couples actually tied the knot for the first time and it is legitimate.
