A generation of Minnesotans grew up on visits to ski hills all around the area, so doesn’t it make sense that a love match made on the slopes might lead to the creation of the next generation of Minnesota skiers?
If you are a young professional searching for a lasting connection, or an older single person looking to confirm that love is better the second time around, chairlift speed dating is a fresh way to find companionship.
How it works
Afton Alps is collaborating with LUMA Luxury Matchmaking for this unique—and possibly life-changing—speed dating event.
LUMA will match compatible love-seekers with others in your preferred age category, and the two of you will jump on a chairlift and get acquainted on the ride up the mountain.
If you want to continue the conversation, you can ski down together. Or if you just aren’t feeling it, you can leave a lousy match behind on the mogul field.
Once you get to the bottom, there’s always the option of a new chairlift match for the next ride up. You can meet as many people as possible, and each ride up the chairlift earns you a raffle ticket for the après-ski raffle.
The fun is happening on Sunday, February 19. Registration begins at 2:00 pm and speed dating happens from 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm. From 5:00 pm until 6:00 pm, enjoy a social hour and raffle.
The cost is $30 per person, which includes a lift ticket (good ‘til 9:30 pm), drink ticket, participation in the event and entry for prizes. Need to rent skis or a snowboard? No problem — they are available to rent for an additional $21.
