Ski resort offers Valentine’s Day speed dating on the lift

Are you a lonely skier looking for love this Valentine’s Day? If so, the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, located in Utah, just might be able to help you find that special someone you’ve been looking for. Next Tuesday, February 14, the resort will play host to a unique speed dating event, during which skiers and snowboarders will get a chance to get to know one another while riding the chairlift up the mountain.

To entice single skiers and riders to visit Snowbird for Valentine’s Day, the resort is offering all-day adult lift tickets for just $40. But that is just the start of the fun, as they’ve also designated one of their lifts, the aptly named Peruvian Express, as “single’s only” for the day. Speed-daters will then have the opportunity to hop on the lift together, chat on their way to the summit, and then ski back down the slope. If a love connection is made, they can elect to spend the rest of the day getting to know one another better, or simply get back on the lift and give it another go. At the end of the day, they can also gather at the singles social in the El Chanate restaurant, where the new Snowbird love-birds can enjoy two-for-one appetizers and entrees.

If you’ve already found your significant other, Snowbird has you covered as well. The resort is offering specials for couples looking for a romantic escape, with packages including options for a romantic dinner, a visit to the spa, and a night’s stay at one of the onsite lodges.

And in case you’re wondering about the conditions on the hill, never fear. Snowbird has had more than 170 inches of powder already this winter, and is maintaining a base of 63 inches as well. In other words, it is business as usual, with plenty of great skiing on tap.

So, whether you’re looking to treat your sweetie to a romantic getaway, or meet a new one on the slopes, Snowbird has you covered for Valentine’s Day this year.
