Anyone who’s ever been on a big group ski trip knows that coupling up is a frequent occurrence in the mountains.Whether the altitude, the après-ski culture or the need to be cosy is to blame, it’s not unusual to find love on the slopes, even if the romance is fleeting.Beginning at the European Conference of UAEM 2014 in Basel, there has been a growing collaboration between the two organizations.
But one Alpine festival, Snowbombing, which takes place in April, has taken things one step further with the introduction of chair lift speed dating.At 8,497 feet high in Mayrhofen, Austria, the festival is known for its music line-up, fancy dress-clad revellers and creative activities (think igloo raves, enchanted forest parties and rooftop jacuzzis), but chair lift speed dating may be one of Snowbombing’s most unique ideas yet.Any skier or boarder knows that sitting on a chairlift can be one of the most boring parts of the experience, particularly if the sun’s not out and you’re shivering whilst being blasted by icy air, so why not liven things up by having a quick date?“We can’t think of a better place to meet the potential love of your life person than on a chairlift,” say the festival organisers.The reset email you will receive will be from Daily Mail and once your new password is activated you will initially be directed to the Daily Mail home page.

Each prospective couple has one tour on the chair lift so making a good first impression is critical - dressing up is highly recommended.
Can you really fall in love with someone - particularly dressed in ski gear - in ten minutes though? “We had some serious snogging within the first 30 seconds on the lift last year,” reveal the Cool Bananas cupids. Well, all you have to do is whizz down the mountain for another date.
