TANNERSVILLE, Pa. (CBS) – Super Bowl Sunday can see fewer skiers head to the slopes and some area ski resorts are offering discounts to bring people in.
An informal survey of several area ski resorts finds most aren’t doing anything special for Super Bowl Sunday, saying the game is late enough that people can ski early and still get home in time to watch the Ravens face the 49ers.
But there are a few exceptions to that rule.
Snow Mountain is offering a discount if you wear a team jersey Sunday and Camelback discounts can be found on the website liftopia.com.
“If we have a little bit of snow in the forecast, it could actually be busier than the average Sunday,” says Brian Czarnecki, Camelback’s vice president of sales & marketing.
Sunday evenings are generally slower, prompting some area resorts to offer recurring discounts for skiing from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
