    Chairway 2 Heaven

    Chairway 2 Heaven at Mt. Hood MeadowsMt. Hood Meadows presents “Chairway 2 Heaven” – speed dating on its Blue chairlift. 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 2 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 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 Blue Chairlift has it's own romance. It was one of the original two chairs offered at Meadows when the resort opened in January of 1968. Countless numbers of couples were introduced on the chair over its lifetime, as well as proposals for marriage (and other perhaps less permanent relationships) have been made, turned down and accepted while riding the chair. It offers a magnificent view of the resort - in fact one of the resort's primary web cameras is mounted on the top of Blue.

    Blue has a very steep off ramp requiring intermediate or advanced skill levels.
