Tired of the Internet dating scene? Ready to meet someone who shares your interest in skiing or snowboarding? Prefer to hash out the small talk on the lift rather than over a drink? Then c’mon up to Saddleback, in Rangeley, on Monday, Feb. 14, for speed dating on the Rangeley double chairlift.
A $25 lift ticket provides the opportunity to share the eight-minute chairlift ride with a potential mate. “People can go on as many dates or rides up on the lift as they like, and should they find they don’t want the date to end quite yet, they’d then be able to ski back down together,” says JoAnne Taylor, marketing director at Saddleback.
The idea many have had roots with a former lift attendant, Steve, who made it a habit to introduce singles to each other before they rode the chair together.
