If you haven’t been to Black Mountain, trust me when I say it’s an easy place to fall in love with. So, maybe, just maybe, you can fall in love with somebody else there this month.
The sixth annual Chairlift Speed Dating event takes place in Jackson, N.H. on Feb. 16, when single skiers and riders can ride “the lift of love” and see if a match made in heaven is made.
The "lift of love" will load participants from 2-4 p.m. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m., and is free, but all skiers and riders must have a valid lift ticket. Ticket rates for Saturday are $49 for adults and $32 for juniors or half-day rates starting at 12:30 p.m. are $35 for adults and $25 for juniors. The evening ends with a special après event in the Lostbo Pub, featuring special "love potions" and prizes.
