A New Take on Dating

The folks at the Black Mountain Ski Area in Jackson New Hampshire have come up with a new twist on dating. They call it “Chair Lift Speed Dating“, and Saturday, February 12 will be the fifth annual Chair Lift Speed Dating event at the ski area.

How does it work? It’s quite simple. They form two lines at the double chair lift – one of men and one of women. You pair up for the ride up. At the top you decide whether or not to ski off together or go back down for another try. The event starts at 2:00 PM and will be followed by an apres ski party in their Lostbo Pub.

Might be just the way to find your valentine…
