There’s no better place to spend Hallmark’s fake holiday than on the ski hill. We got five fun events listed below. There’s something for everyone — Singles, couples, and even one deal for those looking to take the plunge.
- Chair lift speed dating from noon until 2pm
- Raffle drawing
- Goody Bag give away for riding chair #14
- Hidden vouchers for appetizers and 10 minute massages in the west village lodge.
Mt. Hood Meadows presents “Chairway to Heaven” – speed dating on its Blue chairlift this Valentine’s Sunday. There will be two “singles” lines – one for women and one for men. In total randomness (which is an awesome way to start a relationship) the singles will be paired up on the Blue chairlift for a nine-minute ride to the top. The couple can decide if they want to take some runs together, go off to another chair lift, or split up and take another shot at a speed date. There is no additional cost for “Chairway to Heaven” other than a lift ticket or season pass.
The “Meadows Mingle” will also be presented near the bottom of the Blue chairlift to get everyone in the mood. There’ll be wine tasting, a fire pit, cheese and crackers and a drawing for fabulous prizes, all while listening to the velvet tones of Barry White, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and others. The Mingle and Chairway to Heaven events are scheduled from 11 AM – 5 PM.
Participating couples that complete the pre-registration form will be eligible for the $59 “2 for 1” lift tickets the day of the event. Pre-registered couples will also be eligible to purchase 2-for-1 lunches for $11 including two $11 vouchers good at any Loveland Cafeteria outlet (alcohol excluded). Wedding cake, raffle tickets and beer coupons will be provided complimentary for pre-registered couples. Pre-registration ends on February 12, 2010.
The Where’s the Love Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to explore Squaw Valley’s lush terrain and is open to all guests at Squaw Valley USA on Valentine’s Day. Skiers and riders who find a hidden magnetic heart can bring it to Plaza Bar for redemption of prizes such as lift tickets, ski and snowboard lessons, gift certificates to shops, bars and restaurants, and more. The hunt begins at 9 am when the lifts open and lasts until the last heart is found.
Those who kiss each other in front of the ticket booth will get $14 tickets.
