ASPEN, Colo., March 17 (UPI) -- Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones are celebrating the 16th anniversary of their engagement.

The 71-year-old actor and 46-year-old actress marked the occasion by returning to the romantic spot in Aspen, Colo., where Douglas proposed.

"16 years ago, this was the spot where my husband proposed," Zeta-Jones captioned a photo of the scenic mountain locale Tuesday.

The couple arrived in Aspen over the weekend and have been enjoying prime conditions for skiing. Zeta-Jones remarked on the weather, writing, "Just loving these conditions and my Pucci ski pants!!!"

Douglas proposed to Zeta-Jones on New Year's Eve in 1999. The couple married in New York the next year and share two children, 15-year-old son Dylan and 12-year-old daughter Carys.

Douglas and Zeta-Jones appear to be going strong after separating in 2013. The actor confirmed he and Zeta-Jones had reconciled on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April and discussed their relationship again at the AARP Movie Awards.

"I think it's just moment to moment," he said of marriage. "Catherine reminds me, I like to say sometimes, we all make more efforts to strangers than we do to the people closest to us."

"I think love, without getting too corny, [is] nourishing each other, working at relationships, good sustenance, good food, good kids, all kind of a combination," he added.
