But one Alpine festival, Snowbombing, which takes place in April, has taken things one step further with the introduction of chair lift speed dating.
Can you really fall in love with someone - particularly dressed in ski gear - in ten minutes though? “We had some serious snogging within the first 30 seconds on the lift last year,” reveal the Cool Bananas cupids. Well, all you have to do is whizz down the mountain for another date.

For every chairlift-ride “date” they go on, they’ll earn a raffle ticket for a prize at the end of the event.
