What better place to get to know someone than to be alone together on a ski lift?

That was the idea Sunday at Afton Alps in Hastings. The ski resort partnered with It’s Just Lunch to offer skiers a chance to meet their true love on a chairlift.

"People could come and buy a ticket and they could get paired up at the bottom of the chair lift and then they would ride up, have some conversation, figure out if it was worth having more conversation and made a choice to go over to the yurt," said Bessy Muller, marketing and public relations manager at Afton Alps.

There was an area set up for conversation and drink sampling, or skiers could get back in the lift line to be paired with another match and go again.

The event was a success for a few lucky singles — we’re told some exchanged numbers during the event.
