The couple were spotted getting some food after hitting the slopes by a fellow skier, who uploaded a picture to Instagram.
Taylor Swift's brother Austin is also thought to be part of the skiing party at Canyons Resort in Park City.

Harry and Taylor's whirlwind romance first emerged last month when they were spotted enjoying a romantic trip to New York's Central Park with friends.
They then jetted to London together when One Direction performed at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball in early December.
While Harry has headed to Utah, the rest of One Direction arrived back in London last night (21st December) following their performance on The X Factor.
