hikeswithdogs Easy one for me especially if your on a budget and northern Utah snow has been good.

Stay at the Snowberry inn(Bed and Breakfast) smack in the middle of Eden Valley(on the lake) east of Ogden in the northern Wasatch.

It's stunningly beautiful, 45 minutes from the airport, no crowds and access(both 20 minutes away from the B&B) to two of my favorite world class resorts anywhere.

Good luck and have fun wherever you end up!

rekha14 We’ve looked at places in holiday brochures and we were thinking either Austria, France or Italy which we believe could make tremendous honeymoon tour package … If we were to go to Europe, or if we wanted to go further afield, Canada.

It’s also the idea that we will have stuff to do everyday, rather than lay on a sunlounger by the pool or on the beach. He hates the sun, I could easily and happily lay out in it for hours but it does get boring after a while. I think it would just be nice to be active as well.

Looks like the top three pics are the Banff Springs Hotel, the next couple are the Lake Louise ski area (40 mins from downtown Banff) and Sunshine Village (about 20 mins from Banff), and the last one is the view of the town centre.

Just so you don't think those were pro photos, here's some that I've taken of the area. And I'm no pro!

Boarding at Lake Louise last fall...


Elbow Falls in the summer (never been there in the winter)


One of Louise' back bowls...


The actual Lake itself (fed by the glacier above it AFAIK)


Horrible pic but there's a little waterfall as you get into town. Makes for a great hike/scramble in the summer.

If something like that is an option... Baldface lodge is beautiful in Nelson BC.

Just looked at the location of Mica, looks like an amazing location and lodge. The ranges and peaks around revy looked awesome......

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

I just went through quite a bit of territory on my trip. Banff would be my only choice in that region. Whistler looks nice but we didnt go that far west. Living in vail, going to other ski areas makes me love Vail that much more. It is a very romantic place and the boarding is great. Whistler would be a similar experience to Vail from what I can tell.

Everything after Banff on the highway to Revy, including Revy, was just kinda blah.. Small run down towns without much going on. The "resort' area at revy closed everything but one restaurant at like 5pm. We rode there 3 days and were not impressed. We were actually pretty bored with the mountain/area that we hauled ass to Jackson Hole to ride for a day. I would have to put Jackson on your list too. Very cute little town, great mountain with amazing terrain, better than Revy. The base areas at Jackson are built nicely too with a free bus system going into town from Teton Village.

I have never been to Vermont but hear its nice..... I would not recommend a honeymoon there just because I have not been there. I have been to Tahoe this season also. Northstar is pretty nice.... its pretty small as far as the resort area is concerned and beginner/intermediate mountain terrain. Great amenities on the property.

I would stick with Vail and Whistler but would edge it to vail just because its snow quality is better in Jan/Feb. Both village bases are quite sprawling with a ton of shit to do. There is very little Bro-brah shit going on here too. Very professional and polite service industry type people......

I see your point, for us it was about the adventure we were beginning....and frankly the wedding festivities were fun, but a pita and was more for the family and friends (which we would do again in a heart beat)...but we were thrilled just being alone and doing our thing....neither one of us have been in to the resort thing and would rather camp in a secluded beautiful spot...last year we did 2 weeks on the beach in HI for our 25th.
