Fly the flag! In case you were wondering if our mountain town friends are as into the Broncos as we are here in Denver, check out the above bit of viral video genius from Telluride Ski Resort. Oh, yeah, it's on.
First tracks! Broncos fans are getting some love from Breckenridge, too, where your orange-and-blue outerwear will get you on the Beaver Run SuperChair on Peak 9 -- and into all that pow -- an hour early, starting at 7:30 a.m. with a valid lift ticket or season pass. Did we mention Breck is on track for its January snowfall record?
Orange you glad it's snowing? Sport your Broncos colors at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and get a $48 lift ticket in honor of Super Bowl XLVIII. At the end of the day, hit up the tailgate party at Butte 66, which is offering free beer for orange-wearers from 3 p.m until the keg taps out. Head back to Butte 66 on Super Bowl Sunday for 99-cent wings and barbecue specials during the game. Root for the Broncos' defense, and plan to stay the night: CBMR will offer discounted lift tickets on Monday based on the overall score of the game: "The big question arises, how low could it go? If the score at the end of the game is 3 to 0, tickets at CBMR would be $3 next Monday," according to CBMR spokeswoman Erica Mueller. "As a reference in Super Bowl history, the lowest combined scoring game was 21 points in 1973, but CBMR is willing to bet on the odds and regardless give everyone a discounted day of skiing. Go Broncos!"Buffs before Broncs! Have some black and gold in your wardrobe, too? The CU-Boulder Alumni Association will be hosting a CU Alumni Day and rooting for the CU Ski Team in the Spencer James Invitational Ski Race at Winter Park on Saturday, and Doc's Roadhouse is offering food and drink discounts for the occasion from 3 to 5 p.m.
Mmm... savory! Keystone's month-long Savor the Slopes event kicks off on Saturday, with $25 tasting menus. Saturday's special features the chocolate tasting wheel at Keystone Ranch; Sunday's special is a four-course mini sampling menu at the Ski Tip Lodge. That doesn't really have anything to do with the Broncos, but still... yum!
