There’s getting engaged, and then there’s getting engaged in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

We’ve got more than a few clever ideas up our sleeves regarding how and where to pop the question, in Jackso Hole, perhaps one of them will resonate with you!
Winter Proposal Ideas for a Guaranteed “Yes!”
1. On a ski lift.
How incredibly romantic will it be to shock your significant other by turning towards them, ask for their hand in marriage and cry and laugh together when he or she says yes? Oh, and all the while you’ll be surrounded by the incredible backdrop of the Grand Teton mountains. Oh, and you’ll have hired a photographer or recruited a friend, to go on the lift chair in front of you and capture the entire thing on video. Talk about epic! An engagement story to swoon over for the rest of your life.
2. In a natural hot spring.
Jackson Hole is near quite a few natural hot springs. Picture the two of you, relaxing in the hot soring, feeling contented by the healing energy of the abundant nature, happily fatigued from a few days of winter sports. You’re chatting amicably or sitting in relaxed silence. Suddenly, you pop the question, tears of joy spring forth, and then you celebrate by continuing to soak in the hot water.
3. On top of a mountain.
You get off of the ski lift, make your way towards the run. You bend down pretending to need to make an adjustment, catch his or her attention, pull out the little box, and ask the question. Kisses, hugs, exclamations of joy, and the most exciting run down the mountain of your lives.

4. At the bottom of the mountain.
This may take more… cleverness than the other plans. Somehow, find a way to ensure that you will be at the bottom of the run when he or she finishes. Before that, though, arrange to have a giant sign saying “will you marry me?” held up by a group of skiers, as you wait in front of them, down on one knee. As she makes her way down the mountain, the sign will come into view, and she will be in complete shock as she realizes it’s you causing all the commotion!
5. Overlooking the Fireworks
New Year’s Eve is a spectacular time to pop the question. Stop by Haydens Post where you can view fireworks and the Snow King Mountain torchlight parade. Enjoy a special dinner, champagne toast and of course fireworks. When timed perfectly, she’ll say yes and fireworks will go off. Now, how could you ever forget an evening like that?
