Whether football fans are cheering for the Saints or the Colts, Okemo Mountain Resort has the ticket to pre-game skiing and riding with the Big Game Sunday Solution on Feb. 7, and an even better deal for Monday-morning quarterbacks the day after, Feb. 8.
Okemo understands that sports fans may want to make it home in time for pre-game revelry so the Big Game Sunday Solution ticket takes another $10 off Okemo's already reduced Sunday Solution rate. That means skiers and riders can enjoy the slopes from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for only $60 for Adults, $52 for Young Adults and Seniors, and $37 for Juniors.
For Monday-morning quarterbacks who prefer to relive every play of the game from the comfort of a chairlift, Okemo has an extra special lift ticket value that depends entirely on the final score of Sunday's game. On Monday, Feb. 8, the price of a full-day lift ticket will be charged at $1 per point, based on the total combined points scored during Sunday's Big Game. If the final score of the game is Saints 27 and Colts 20, the price of a lift ticket on Monday will be $47. How low could it go? A scoreless game would mean free lift tickets, however, the lowest combined score in Super Bowl history was 21 points in 1973. In case of a high-score game, Okemo is capping the Feb. 8 lift ticket price at $59.
For skiers and riders looking for a great combo deal, Okemo offers the Super Ski Weekend. Booking a two-night/two-day stay-and-ski package, including accommodations and lift tickets for Friday, Feb. 5 through Sunday, Feb. 7, will earn a savings of 20 percent - but only when they mention the word "super." Okemo will offer a 30 percent discount for those who opt in for a three-night weekend. The Super Ski Weekend can be reserved by calling (866) 706-5366 and asking for the "super" deal.
Based on skier visits, Okemo recorded its best Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday weekend since 2002. The popular resort saw 23 percent more skiers and riders compared to the same holiday weekend last year and was 16 percent ahead of projections for the week.
A skier visit is defined as one person participating in the sport of snow sliding for all or part of a day.
"For the first time since 2004, the weather forecast for the MLK weekend was positive," said Okemo VP of Marketing Scott Clarkson. "Snow conditions and temperatures were ideal - 20s to 30s all three weekend days, with 4 to 6 inches of fresh snow falling Sunday night to greet Monday's skiers and riders."
