Default Snowboarding honeymoon suggestions??

So me and my fiancée are deciding on where to go for our honeymoon. We want to go somewhere with great snowboarding but also romantic. We have been deciding between Whistler, Vermont and Banff/Lake Louise/Sunshine. I have heard great things about Banff. I hear they have hot springs which is a bonus. I have never been to any of these locations and would like peoples opinions. I have tried to look online for honeymoon packages but there doesn't seem to be much of anything. All honeymoon packages seem to be to Europe or some tropical destination which is not what we are looking for. Where's the honeymoon vacations for snowboarding??? Any opinions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

IMO, i would say banff might not be a great location for a romantic honeymoon...the banff springs hotel, while stunning is extremely pricey and the rooms are "old style" AKA small. The hot springs are so developed, it is actually a chlorinated pool heated with the springs water. Plus banff is quite busy and full of city folk from Calgary.

KickingHorse (Golden, BC) may be a decent option, the Eagles Eye restaurant at the top is stunning and as close to "fine dining" you can get at the top of a ski hill, you could get a slope side cabin with a bit more privicy, hot tub etc. There are a few nightclub/bar areas right on the hill that stay open till 2. Plus you are a quick day trip to Fairmont Hot Springs, or an adventure to Lussier Hot Springs.

Hopefully some others can weigh in and help you out!

FYI Kicking Horse is a bit of an advanced mountain in terms of riding. There are green runs top to bottom, but it aint no cupcake trail.

I don't think Banff is a bad option, there are a lot of nice restaurants and stunning scenery. Chateau Lake Louise is a beautiful hotel as well, and the Banff Spring is too, small rooms don't bother me. The hot springs in Banff are still enjoyable even if it is overdeveloped. I would not go to Kicking Horse... its a good hill for advanced riding but a shit town to spend your honeymoon in.

+1 for Banff

Im saying to stay in the village of KH....and yes Golden is a dump, hahah.

Fairmont might be an option too as Panorama is close.

Lake louise, fernie, and panorama are your best bets for honeymoon. Big white and silver star would top choices too as they lie in the okanagan. They all have actual amenities that you would want, and quietness if you choose.

Just keep in mind, we see Banff all the time so the wow factor is gone. To a new visitor it is stunning and when your on your honeymoon you want a lot of options. Banff has the most options for restaurants, sightseeing, snowboarding, nightlife etc. out of all the above.
