Ski deals on Super Bowl Sunday: lift tickets from $19
Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days to score ski deals, according to Liftopia.com. The online ski discounter has rounded up 44 deals for Super Bowl XLIV, including the $19 special from Canaan Valley Resort in West Virginia. Considering a full-day pass on a Sunday normally costs at least $49 for adults, that's more than 60 percent off at this resort.
With most of the nation huddled in front of a TV on Feb. 7, you'll also encounter shorter lines at resorts such as Lake Tahoe's Bear Valley ($35, or 41 percent off), Colorado's Crested Butte ($44, or 49 percent off), Utah's Snowbird ($57, or 21 percent off), or Idaho's Sun Valley ($55, or 33 percent off).
This year, the game doesn't kick off until 6 p.m. EST, so it's possible to ski or snowboard first and then catch the game. With these discounts, Super Bowl Sunday is shaping up to be more than an excuse for chips and chicken wings (though I'm going to guess that those will taste even better after wiping out on the slopes).
Bargain hunters are taking note: last year, Liftopia had 186 percent more ticket redemptions on Super Bowl Sunday than the Sunday before the big game, according to Reece.
