Speed dating in real time
SKI Magazine editor Kim Beekman went to a speed dating event at Loveland Ski Resort in Colorado last weekend and it looked like quite the time.Event-goers were matched with others in similar age groups and told to ride the lift and... If one person wasn't into it, they could peace out and go find another match (or just go skiing). But sometimes it makes us forget that meeting people with different interests and different backgrounds is fun and exciting. So you’re not brushing someone off for some interest they have that probably wouldn’t even effect your relationship with them, you’re getting a slight glimpse at whether or not you might actually enjoy their company. Online dating can be a lot of fun, and can yield some great results.Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.
(Kim, you are my spirit animal.) The lack of snow in France this time of year would probably deter most people from trying to ski there.
“Most people” apparently doesn’t include freeskier Anthony Robert, who just Instagrammed himself throwing a superman front flip from a massive, snow-less jump.
Troy, who goes by TPOD, can throw flawless double and triple flips, along with spins and grabs that pretty much no one else even close to his age can pull off.
He’s also the youngest skier ever to successfully land a triple cork 1440 - three flips and four 360 spins all in one jump.
