Do you desire more than just some flowers and candy this Valentine’s Day? How about celebrating the day a bit differently with some high up romance? On Monday, Feb.14, Saddleback, Maine offers an eight minute speed dating service on their chairlifts for singles at the Rangeley chairlift.
You just pay $25 for your lift ticket and then single men and women can go up together in the chairlift’s eight minute ride up the mountain. The ride lets guys and gals spend the time talking to their “date” and then can decide if they want to go up for another ride to talk more.
Operators say it is a fun chance for people to have a mini-date with someone, who if nothing else, shares their love of skiing. They will go up the mountain, then ski back down together. And, if desired, they can do this over and over and meet lots of people. Perhaps they will end up with a new “Valentine.”
Couples doing this mini date get a red heart to wear and then get into special waiting lines. They are paired up and sent up the mountain on a ride where they can talk and try to find out about one another.
So, if you want to meet someone new this Valentine’s Day and love skiing, this may be a great way to find special someone this year. Get that ski outfit, boots and hat and head to Saddleback, Maine to take an eight minute ride that could turn into a ride of a lifetime with a new exceptional partner.
