KEYSTONE, Colo. — Feb. 10, 2014 —Love is in the air, and on the snow, this Valentine’s Day at Keystone Resort, with the second-annual Love on the Liftsspeed dating event set for Friday, Feb. 14. Keystone will once again give singles the chance to meet their perfect match with a series of 11-minute speed dates aboard the River Run Gondola. Participants will enter through the “singles” line, an industry norm for skiers and riders enjoying the mountain solo, and be matched for a ride to the mountain’s summit. Once they reach the top of Dercum Mountain, newly matched singles can choose to spend the day together, enjoying the more than seven feet of fresh snow Keystone has received since Jan. 1. Following a powder-filled day across the resort’s 3,148 acres, would-be loves can reconnect at the evening’s Valentine’s Party at 9280’ Taphouse in River Run Village. The match-making fun begins at 10 a.m. at the base of the River Run Gondola.
