Need a little more adventure? Consider a romantic day on the slopes at Powderhorn Mountain Resort or scenic hiking on the pristine trails in Palisade.

Powderhorn is a scenic 35-minute drive outside of Palisade on the Grand Mesa. Get some turns in on the mountain and then retire by the fire with a glass of wine and a cozy meal.

Finish off any romantic Valentine getaway with a special carriage ride with JR’s Carriage Service – there’s nothing more romantic than a horse-drawn carriage ride with your significant other.
