Speed dating. Many have heard of it, few have actually tried it. I will admit, I have tried it twice and both experiences left me questioning whether I'd ever consider it again. Well... a friend passed along a link to something called Chairlift Speed Dating and my inner [single] skier was instantly intrigued.

Let me get this right, you grab your skis (or snowboard) and get paired with another single, then ride up the chair and your conversation lasts as long as it takes to get to the top? Ski down and do it all over again with a different skier?

Ummm... okay, you have my attention. Good or bad skier, you already have one common interest! If the speed date goes terribly, ski away and never look back! It's all going down at Wilmot Mountain this Sunday, February 10 with matchmaking provided by It's Just Lunch.

*Not an ad - now I just need to decide if I want to spend $58 to check this experience out (includes lift ticket, 1 hour of chairlift speed dating, and a cocktail).
