Ski resorts lure sweethearts to the slopes with Valentine's Day deals
From $14 lift tickets to buy-one-get-one-free deals aplenty, Pennsylvania's ski resorts are hoping to lure couples to spend Valentine's Day on the slopes with a slew of sweetheart deals next week.
Skiers and snowboarders can choose from several cheap lift ticket and rental options, and non winter-sport enthusiasts can opt for a romantic four-course dinner or slopeside buffet.
