Cupid, the mythological winged being known for shooting lonely, single victims with poisonous arrows of love, was spotted skiing the Aspen/Snowmass Resort in Colorado on Valentine’s Day. The god of desire, lust, and love was clad in ski attire, complete with his signature bow and arrow, and spent the day spreading love all over Aspen Mountain as he lapped all the lifts. To capture Cupid in action, Aspen’s content crew was out in full force. And by “action” we don’t just mean skiing–no, this angelic creature got hot and heavy with everyone he happened upon.
We caught up with Cupid to ask him about what it’s like to be an ancient Greek god, and what the heck he was doing skiing at Aspen/Snowmass.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
What makes Valentine’s Day at Aspen/Snowmass so special?
Because Aspen is the most romantic ski town in the world! It’s glorious, love is in the air everywhere, and because I’m here. … Duh!
Did you shoot love arrows at anyone on the mountain and how did you choose your victims?
I chose only the raddest skiers and the hottest snow bunnies for this special Valentine’s Day in Aspen. Ski bunnies and hotties are the easiest to make fall in love. And then I get so much action.
What’s the best part about being Cupid?
What’s not the best part of being Cupid? But for one, all the chicks. If you didn’t know, I have game, and plenty of it.
You’re the god of desire and live your life passing love along to others, but who do you love, Cupid?
I fall in love with every woman I meet. Speaking of which, how much time do you have? Care to grab lunch, brunch, or dinner? Darling, my love runs deep.
Where’s the best place to go on and off the mountain in Aspen on Valentine’s Day?
The absolute best way to enjoy Valentine’s Day in Aspen is to start the day right with Bonnie’s pancakes, a little sweet slice of locals’ heaven. Butter and syrup atop a mound of delicious dough–are you in love yet? Then get some lunch at the Ajax Tavern at the base of Ajax Mountain. Oooh lala! Truffle fries anyone? Then get your cute little ski bunny butt back up on the mountain to ski. Shred it up baby! Then when you’re all tuckered out, get dressed up for a romantic dinner for two at Jimmy’s. I recommend the crab cakes, and a bottle of wine–seriously, it’ll do just fine. Then grab your sweetie for a night of dancing on the town. Ah, a lovely day filled with love!
