Country music superstar Thomas Rhett and his beautiful wife, Lauren Akins, decided to hit the slopes to celebrate the New Year.

While many people have likely headed south for the winter in order to escape the cold, Thomas and Lauren chose to, instead, embark on a romantic ski trip up to the mountains.

While they didn’t disclose the exact location of their fun-filled vacation, some fans did suggest the couple has taken to the former Victorian mining town of Telluride, Colorado, for their mountainous adventure. And based on a photo Lauren’s sister Macy shared on her page, we have a feeling those fans are right.

“Hello 2018 ✨,” Lauren simply wrote on Instagram on Jan. 1, alongside a photo that showcases her and Thomas sitting alongside each other, while enjoying the cool breeze amid a scenic snowy background.

In this shot, the two lovebirds seem to be toasting to their enchanting getaway, as they each hold up their respective cups filled with their drink of choice. Meanwhile, Lauren looks like a gorgeous snow bunny in her ski gear, which includes a coral pink jacket, fur hood, and a pair of blue goggles. As for Thomas, he looks handsome in his plaid jacket and sunglasses.

Even though the lovely pair visibly enjoyed their alone time together, it looks like they had a blast with some of their friends, too.

“Some of the crew on the slope today🙌🏼🍾,” Thomas captioned a snapshot on his Instagram page, which features their travel buddies while out on the slopes.

It also seems as if Lauren did a bit of reflecting on the year that was. You may forget that their 2017 started with them just as a family of two before welcoming daughter Willa in May, followed by Ada in August.

They were the best part of my 2017 💛

“They were the best part of my 2017 💛,” Lauren noted, alongside a montage of nine photos featuring a few highlighted moments between her, Thomas and their two baby girls.

Prior to their ski trip, the family also enjoyed their first-ever traditional Christmas as a family of four. And, it seems Willa got to unwrap some really cool presents, including a play kitchen set that she loved so much.

We can only imagine that Thomas and Lauren will be able to share in plenty more bonding time with the little ones, as he doesn’t have any tour dates lined up until April. Happy New Year, Thomas and Lauren!
