So...it started with an innocent little idea.
I was just riding the chairlift with a friend. We began to laugh about the 'Singles' line at the base of the chair. And, oh, if only it were that easy in life....Wait a second....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! And thus, Lifts of Love was born. Speed-dating at a ski hill. Each lift ride up is a speed date with some other eligible snow rider. And if you don't like how it goes, well, you schuss off into the distance.
|By the next day, Cupid (aka Jeff Siddle) was on the slopes of Mt Norquay for his photo shoot.|
Thanks to CJSW's Charmer's Almanac and Mountain FM for radio interviews, and a host of others (including but not limited to the Canmore Leader, Rocky Mountain Outlook, Calgary Herald, Calgary Sun, Virgin Radio) for great stories and coverage!
Footnote: The added hilarity here is that I grew up skiing at a very small, intimate ski hill. When skiing alone, at the base of the hill you were to raise a pole in the air, tilt your head back and belt out a mighty 'SIIIIINGLE!' I always thought this was how one should operate in pubs and such. Finally, I now have an outlet. And for those of you who are thinking that I launched this entire event as a campaign to uncover my next mountain man. Well....so what if I did???
