Singles skiing or snowboarding at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort this Valentine's Day had the chance to mingle with others by riding the Peruvian Chairlift. Two singles lines, one designated for women and the other for men, aimed to pair singles up for chairlift speed dating in hopes that some lucky riders might find love.
Snowbird employee and local Joan Berrett kicked off the morning with a love poem just before the lift started to load:
The Great Chairlift Speed Date
As you wiz through the air
On the ski lift chair
Looking for your next line on this day of Valentine.
May the bonds you create
Sprout the seed of fate…
For true love be found on the great chairlift speed date.
As the chair goes round and round may it bring about flow
And maybe just maybe a bunch of new snow.
So jump in line for its Valentine
And spin on the wheels of fate.
We all know that Love could grow and new snow would really be GREAT.
Resort guests are invited to participate in a social mixer at El Chanate in the Cliff Lodge featuring buy-one-get-one-free appetizers and entrees throughout the evening.
