Romance in the Rockies Deep powder skiing coupled with indulgent Alberta cuisine create the perfect romantic getaway February 14, 2014 Are you a romantic, powder hound, foodie or adventure seeker? What better way to spend Valentine’s Day weekend than hitting the slopes with your loved one. With nearly 60 cm of snow falling on the resort this week creating ideal conditions leading up to the long weekend, Sunshine is one of the most picturesque environments to experience the romance of the Rockies. Valentine’s Day dinner at 7,200 feet – calling all last minute planners! For folks hoping to impress their loved one with a unique and romantic gesture, the resort is featuring an exclusive Valentine’s menu at the Eagle’s Nest Restaurant in the heart of the village. Bring your blanket, cuddle up next to your sweetheart and admire the stars as you make your way up the gondola to a winter wonderland at 7,200 feet. From there it’s a short moonlight stroll to the Sunshine Mountain Lodge and an awaiting feast. Your romantic dinner begins with your choice of smoked salmon mousse with cucumber salsa, or bison ravioli with a merlot sauce. Your main course includes perfectly cooked Alberta beef tenderloin with peppercorn demi-glace, or a citrus crusted black cod accompanied by lemon grass infused rice and stir fried vegetables. Don’t forget to order your favourite wine, perhaps a pinot noir from British Columbia, or why not toast with a glass of bubbly or two? And what Valentine’s Day is complete without a sweet treat to end the night? Indulge in a raspberry chocolate heart covered in decadent Bernard Callebeaut chocolate, perfect for sharing.
