This holiday weekend runs the gamut as far as social and societal events go.
Chairway 2 Heaven
Sunday is the "Chairway 2 Heaven" speed dating on the Blue Chairlift. Kudos to our special events crew for imagineering this fun and creative mixer. The love lift is scheduled from 11 - 5, and there'll also be a Meadows Mingle at the bottom of Blue where you can meet others as well. It's all for fun, but who knows - maybe a love connection or two will be created, all starting with a 9 minute chailift ride on Blue.
It made us wonder about how many love connections got their start on the slopes? There are already a couple of guest stories that talk about this:
Luke & Emily
Sharon & Danny
If you have a story about someone you met at a ski area that turned into more than a few shared runs together - post it here!
Haitian Relief Fundraiser
Monday is our Haitian Relief Fundraiser to benefit Mercy Corps. We're extending lift operations until 9 PM (normally lifts close at 4 PM Monday) and offering a special $10 lift ticket good from 3 - 9 PM. Purchase this lift ticket online and all $10 of it goes to Mercy Corps.
Since this is a special fundraiser, everyone riding the lift Monday after 4 PM will need to purchase the $10 ticket - including season pass holders. Other tickets such as Costco, destination, online tickets (other than the special $10 fundraising ticket) will expire at 4 PM. We will be selling $10 tickets at the ski resort Monday, but you should purchase the ticket online as all $10 of the online ticket is donated to Mercy Corps.
Have a great holiday weekend - and we'll see you on the slopes!
