It’s been on your mind for a while. You’ve secured the ring and the familial blessing. Still, you’re stressing. No venue feels right for your big on-one-knee moment. Perhaps you’ve been waiting for a sign.
Well, here it is: Propose on the Slopes. That is—treat your spouse-to-be to a stay at The Grand America Hotel and propose on the picturesque slopes of our sister property, Snowbasin. We’ll be here to take care of the details. We’ve even broken down your perfect proposal getaway into 5 easy phases.
Phase 1: Magic Begins at Check-in
It’s a big first impression. Imported marble flooring, iconic chandeliers. You see a harpist playing beside an early 20th century oil painting, and feel transported. Check-in is a breeze. The service is warm, friendly, and efficient.
You walk into your room and are struck by the space, larger and more elegant than the average hotel room. Stepping out onto the balcony, you take in the uncompromised view of the Wasatch Mountains. You watch your partner’s face light up. Still, you know this is only the beginning.
Phase 2: A Scenic Drive to Catch Your Breath
You drive north to Snowbasin. As you leave the city, take a moment to mentally prepare yourself. You can do this. The hugeness of the mountains makes you feel bold. Mirror their energy.
You arrive at the resort in less than an hour. Parking is free and directly adjacent to the entrance. The stress-free journey keeps you both in good spirits. Together, you suit up for the slopes.
Phase 3: Big Backdrop for the Big Moment
Make the most of the mountain. New to snow sports? Enjoy a ski lesson together. Old pros? Race each other to the bottom of your favorite runs.
When you’re ready to pose the big question, there are no bad angles. Maybe you’ll ask your buddies to hide in plain sight, secretly getting great shots. Maybe you want to preserve the intimacy of the moment and find a quiet place to keep it between you two. Whatever your style, this mountain setting will make your moment glorious.
Phase 4: Surprise, Surprise
You return from the mountain, freshen up, and head down to Laurel, The Grand’s modern European-inspired brasserie, for dinner. But you’ve secured much more than a typical reservation.
The host takes you to the back of the restaurant. An almost-hidden sliding door reveals a private dining room full of loved ones you’ve secretly gathered for an engagement celebration. The room is warmly lit, with walls hand-decorated by a muralist. The air is full of well-wishes. You raise a glass to a night neither of you will forget.
Phase 5: The Big Exhale
You deserve to take the next morning slow. You head to The Grand Spa for a couples massage. Once your customized session is over, you take in all of the spa’s Five Star amenities. The Himalayan dry salt sauna. The indoor pool. The granola made fresh by The Grand’s chef each morning.
The rest of your stay is yours to enjoy. Maybe you’ll hit the town—see a play or treat yourself to an evening at the Utah Symphony. Maybe you’ll stay in. Split a bottle of champagne and watch the sunset from your private balcony.
