Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) is selling $48 lift tickets this Saturday to anyone who wears orange on their outside layer. There will also be a tailgate party, large TV screens to watch the game in a base area bar, a wing eating contest, giveaways and discounted tickets on Monday as well, with the price that day depending on the score of Sunday’s game.
The United in Orange themed celebration begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday, with a Tailgate Party at Butte 66 with free beer for everyone in orange until the keg runs out.
Butte 66 will also host the annual Super Bowl Party on Sunday with 50 cent wings, barbeque specials, a wing eating contest at halftime and giveaways throughout the game.
For those still around on Monday, the price of Monday’s full day lift ticket will based on the final combined score of Sunday’s game. The price will be determined using the following formula: $1 per point scored. If the final score is Broncos 24, Seahawks 21, the price of a lift ticket for Monday, Feb. 3 will be $45. However, there is a cap in the event of a high-scoring game; you’ll pay no more than $59 for a full day lift ticket.
Let’s say the score is 3-0, tickets at CBMR would be $3 on Monday. Pray for snow in New Jersey and Crested Butte on Super Bowl Sunday! The lowest combined scoring game in a Super Bowl was 21 points in 1973, by the way.
