Speed dating on a chairlift? Some ski resorts play matchmaker on Valentine’s Day with speed dating on the slopes. The duration of the “date” is the length of a chairlift ride. If the couple clicks, they ski off together on another lift. If interest droops, they zip back in the lift line to swap for another date on the next ride.

Once you have that special someone, it’s time to amp up the romance. Ski resorts offer the perfect backdrop to wow your valentine, and some nearly script out the amorous getaway for you. You just have to show up.
