Top 6 Ski Resorts in the USA and Canada for Couples

Thinking about taking a vacation at one of North America's ski resorts? These are my recommendations for the best ski resorts for couples in the United States and Canada.

Here's what makes a particular ski resort ideal for a couple: Great skiing, naturally. Romantic settings and activities for adults, of course. And a nearby town that is a unique place to visit.

The following ski resorts will meet your needs for that and offer much more -- including scenic beauty, fine food, terrific accommodations (working fireplace a plus), non-ski pursuits, engaging local attractions, and nightlife.

All these ski resorts offer ski equipment rentals and ski lessons for beginners -- so you may not have an excuse to skip a ski holiday together this year.

Click on any of the ski resorts below for more information on what to do and where to stay in these magical winter vacation getaways.
