The First Few Dates: Day Hiking

A day hike is an easy way to spend time with that special someone that doesn’t require a lot of commitment or planning, especially if you’re still in the early stages of your wooing. What’s better, you don’t need a lot of matching gear to pull off a great Instagram photo. All it takes is a couple of fleeces, your smartphone, and a sweet, romantic backdrop.

They’ve Met Your Parents: Snow Sports

Once you’re buying matching snow gear, you’ve taken your relationship to the next level—and hitting the slopes is a great way to show it off. Snuggle up together on the chair lift or sip hot beverages in the lodge. In your matching outfits, it’ll be easy to spot your sweetheart on the hill.
