Ski Valentine’s Day in PA! – Unique date ideas for the 2020 day of love

Arialle Hess

Bear Creek is not in the business of matchmaking, however, the resort offers a pretty unique experience to celebrate Valentine’s Day. If you are struggling with ideas for this year, take a look at this romantic ski resort for something different.

This February 14th, the restaurants of the Lehigh Valley will be jam-packed and ready to serve a delectable dinner. There is no shortage of upscale dining, however, romantic date activities can be hard to find. Mid-February is the dead of winter and views outside your door can be anything but inviting, with grey snow piles brought on by plows shucking loads of dirty snow to clear paths, and the sloppy mess of your sidewalk hastily shoveled. Luckily, there is a place with pristine white coverage that brings back the romantic winter wonderland images that you remember from the movies.

As long as it’s cold enough, Bear Creek utilizes its snowmaking ability to keep the mountain looking like a winter wonderland. Couples skiing makes a great date night by allowing for conversation on the chair lift and enjoying nature’s beautiful surroundings on the way down. You can still buy her that diamond necklace if you want, but for those looking for something other than material presents, or for women planning the special day, Valentine’s Day skiing is romantic, yet fun. If you don’t ski, join the V-day snowtubing party. 

Looking for Valentine’s Day dinner ideas? Naturally, a mountain resort provides multiple dining options, but it’s not what you think. Bear Creek has a hidden gem of its own that fits in quite nicely with the rest of the day of love dining options. The Grille is located in the lower level of the resort and has floor to ceiling windows that gaze out onto the slopes. The cozy fireplaces add an element of relaxation, going for a simple Valentine’s Day dinner feel, but doesn’t completely dress down the special occasion. Of course, if you need a baby sitter, the resort has that covered, too. The on-site daycare offers services 7 days a week during ski season. You can enjoy some one-on-one time, knowing your kiddos are in safe hands.

Looking to celebrate your love year-round? The resort and its various activities are available 365. Bear Creek offers a “Romance Package” hotel special valid April-November. With the secluded natural surroundings and relaxing spa services with outdoor hot tubs, it’s the perfect romantic couple’s getaway without the travel. Bear Creek is a beautiful resort hidden just off the path of the busy Lehigh Valley, yet close enough to home to make a perfect date night spot, or a weekend getaway.
