There are pre-Super Bowl sales on the biggest of the big screen TVs for watching Sunday’s big game. There are food and drink specials for all the snacks you’d want have on hand as the Broncos battle the Seahawks. And for the skiers who’d rather pass on watching the Super Bowl even if the hometown team is playing—or take turns up until kick-off—there’s a sale on lift tickets that’ll make Super Bowl Sunday one of the more affordable days of the season to hit the mountain.
On Tuesday, Liftopia, the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and other mountain activities, launched its biggest sale of the year on lift tickets with prices as low as $19.99, as much as 55 percent off walk-up window rates. The Game Day Sale has become somewhat of an annual tradition for Liftopia, and skiers and boarders can reap the benefits at more than 250 resorts across North America. And better yet: You score access to amazing skiable terrain and you don’t have to miss watching the Super Bowl.
“Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year to get out on the hill. You’ll find wide-open trails, no lift lines, and great bars and restaurants to view the game when it starts at 6:30 p.m. EST. You might as well burn some calories on the hill before you dive into those wings,” said Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of Liftopia. “Since this Sunday is traditionally a low-demand day for resorts, our partners offer some of their best weekend deals of the year for our Game Day Sale. The average booked savings on Liftopia for Super Bowl Sunday last year was 33 percent – representing the best value of any Sunday during the regular ski season.”
