Super Bowl on the Slopes: Ski Vacations for Football Fans

The fact that the Super Bowl falls in the middle of a traditionally snow-heavy weekend might escape the notice of less sports-minded skiers, but true (American) football-loving powder hounds have the date permanently marked on their vacation calendars.

How often can one eat wings, watch football on a massive-screen TV and make powder turns all in the same weekend? These vacation packages make it possible, with extra perks to sweeten the deal:

 

Where to Go: Park City | The Deal: Super Bowl on the Slopes

The perks: Gourmet food, local brews, ski-in/ski-out lodging and concierge service to make everything easy.

Go all out:  Spring for a home with an in-home, stadium-seat theater like the one pictured below at King’s Estate, a 6-bedroom ski-in/ski-out pad by Resorts West at Deer Valley Resort.

Where to Go: Mount Hood | The Deal: NFL Weekends

Where to Go: Tahoe | The Deal: Rock & Ride with Hard Rock & Heavenly

The perks: This one almost isn’t fair. To celebrate the grand opening of the Hard Rock Lake Tahoe, you can add a swag bag worth $300 to your stay and hit the casinos while you’re at it.

Go all out: Skip the Double Queen room and go for the Suite. Better yet, ask about the yet-to-be-unveiled Poolside Terrace Suite.

Where to Go:  Ski Brule | The Deal: Super Bowl Bash Weekend

The perks: In true Midwestern style, this Michigan resort will host a tailgate party with giveaways, BBQ and tubing.

Go all out: Choose a Brule Village Chalet like “Heaven’s Window” for space, privacy and access to family-friendly activities like cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
