Adventure provides a natural spark for romance, and generations of couples have met cute on snow-covered mountains. For the second year, Afton Alps is hosting a Chairlift Speed Dating event to help skiing (and snowboarding) singles meet their mates on the mountain. The event is open to participants between 21-70 years old. Co-host matchmaking service LUMA will pair compatible love-seekers with others in their preferred age category, and the two will jump on a chairlift and get acquainted on the ride up the mountain. Ski down together and continue your conversation in the lodge, or request a new charilift match for the next ride up. Don’t be shy about meeting as many people as possible, because each ride up the chairlift earns a raffle ticket for the après-ski raffle. Guests are encouraged to bring friends.
Bounce back from Valentine’s Day and join us Saturday, February 17, 2018 to meet your match. Registration is at 2 p.m. Speed dating from 3-5:00 p.m. Social hour and raffle 5-6:00 p.m.
COST: $30 per person, including a lift ticket (good ‘til 9:30 p.m.), 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. Tickets are available through the Afton Alps website.
Afton Alps, a winter adventure destination for generations of Minnesotans, is collaborating with LUMA Luxury Matchmaking for this unique—and maybe even life-changing!—speed dating event. On a mountain in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, less than a 30-minute drive from the Twin Cities, Chairlift Speed Dating participants will find nearly 300 skiable acres, 51 trails, 17 lifts and four terrain parks. Minnesotans who haven’t visited in the last few years will be in for a surprise: after being purchased by Colorado-based Vail resorts, this sprawling resort poured $10 million into re-imagining the guest experience with refreshed base area facilities, a powerful state-of-the-art snowmaking system and cutting-edge terrain park designs.
