Special Events Run From MLK Weekend Through Super Bowl In East
Martin Luther King weekend (Jan. 18-20) in Vermont will entice skiers and riders with diverse options. Then, on to the Super Bowl.
Bromley is going PHAT Jan. 18. It’s the acronym for "Protect your Head At all Times." As January is National Safety Awareness Month, so this is a good time for families to see how helmets can be safe and cool. Stick around all weekend and get a Bromley lift ticket Jan. 20 for $49 with a printed e-coupon. Purchase it by Jan. 18 online. That will also entitle the holder to a $10 discount on a subsequent all day purchase.
At Killington, the Snowblind Lodging deal saves you 30 percent on lodging and 25 percent on lift tickets. On the safety front, if you purchase a helmet at Killington Sports you’ll get a comp lift ticket with the buy. Make it a point to have a farm fresh lunch in the brand new 15,000 square-foot Peak Lodge atop Killington Peak.
Get to Mount Snow for the Great Holiday Getaway Package, featuring a variety of lodging options. Jan.19 features a torchlight parade and fireworks display, while on Jan. 20, kids under 12 can session the Grommet Jam.
While all this is occurring, your favorite NFL team will be trying to advance to the first outdoor Super Bowl in snow country history, hosted in New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium Feb. 2.
Blue Mountain in Palmerton, Pa. has scheduled the Norton USA Luge Challenge, Feb. 1-2, at the resort. It comes just days prior to the Sochi Opening Ceremony.
This is where people not in spandex take a plastic luge sled down a banked course in fun races against the clock. National team staff and athletes will be there to provide coaching, sleds and helmets. Great prizes will be won by the fastest competitors.
Mountain Creek in N.J. is all in for the Super Bowl Feb. 2. They will feature an on-snow tailgate party and a $10,000 field goal kicking contest.
On that date it’s hoped Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow, dive back into his hole and give us real hope for at least six more weeks of arcing turns.
