Looking for something special to do with your main squeeze this weekend at Northstar? Many events and activities are on the agenda at Northstar to celebrate this Valentine’s Day weekend.

Start the day off on Saturday with the entire family at the top of the Big Springs Gondola in the day lodge where complimentary face painting will be offered.  Then, hit the slopes where everyone can take their turn on Cupid’s Course Valentine’s Fun Race.  Take as many runs as you can, because 50% of all race fees ($6/run) will be donated toTahoe SAFE Alliance.

At 2:00 p.m. if you really want to shout out your love, head to the top of Rendezvous for the daily Northstar Tost.  Special for Valentine’s day this year is Ski, Tost, and be Married! A group wedding ceremony will be performed for anyone who wishes to profess their love, renew their vows, or actually be married! EpicMix photographers will be on site to capture the special day.

Next stop, The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe for evening activities.  Choose from a night of wine and painting at Café Blue hosted by The Painted Vine or, spend a night with your doggie at the 7th Annual Black Tie & Tails Gala.
