Every month we try to come up with new ideas to have fun in the snow and to give our resort guests an experience that they can have for the rest of their lives. Last year my fun new idea came from a ski resort out west that did a ski date afternoon. Singles were paired up with a partner for an hour of skiing to see if they hit it off. We decided to take that thought a little bit further and came up with Lift of Love; Ski Dating. With speed dating still so popular we thought that putting a speed date into the time it takes to ride a ski lift to the top of the mountain as the perfect way to find your soul mate.
Since we are all avid skier or boarders here it is important to us that a friend shares that passion. We found out that our guests felt the same way. You want to know that the person you spend time with and maybe even raise children with has the same values as you do…quality time on the mountain every winter!!!! I know that when I was dating one of my first questions was “Do you ski” and when I found the man that did, we got married and honeymooned at Park City. I digress into my happy married life, but the Lift of Love is about finding a special someone for all our single friends on the slopes.
So how does the Lift of Love work? Is it just a bunch of punks out for a joke? The Lift of Love is a very serious (but fun event), all of our ski daters last year were truly out to find the love of their lives. So with much care we created a line for boys and a line for girls and sent up willing participants to have seven minutes to get to know one another and see if they wanted to take a few runs together or if they wanted to come back to the Lift of Love and try again.
The Lift of Love runs on the “A” lift and is exclusive to ski daters for the night. Only Lift of Love participants are allowed on this lift on Valentines’ night. We are even offering a Lift of Love Lift ticket for just $14 that is available on Thursday, February 14 from 6:00-10:00PM. Lift of Love participants sign up for the fun at Guest Services and will be entered in a drawing to win a free overnight stay in the hotel, too!
2012 was the first year that we offered the Lift of Love and the press loved the unique event. We had national news coverage from Alaska to Philadelphia and blog mentions from Swany Gloves to local realtors. We hope to make 2013 even bigger and better, and we hope that you will find your dream partner on the Lift of Love.
