GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) — There was a ski helmet with sequins and a veil, plus suit jackets worn over snow vests.

Loveland Ski Area’s Valentine’s Day mountaintop wedding ceremony drew even more couples than last year to exchange and renew vows in snowy, whiteout conditions Thursday.

The Colorado ski area says 88 couples showed up to ride a lift to 12,050 feet for the mass ceremony before skiing or snowboarding down the slope. Some wore formalwear over their snow gear. A tutu, a wig and a fairy costume also were spotted.

Last year, about 60 couples wed or renewed their vows at the annual ceremony.

Couples who pre-registered for this year’s event got 2-for-1 lift tickets and admission to a post-wedding reception with wedding cake and drinks.
