Face it, skiing on Super Bowl Sunday hasn’t exactly been an attractive activity this past decade, what with the Patriots frequenting the big game four out of the last eight years. Sure, you could get back home in time for the 6:25 kickoff, but you’d be forced to miss 18 hours of predictions and player profiles. Or, at the very least, a few hours of pre-game snacking and imbibing.

But this year, with the Steelers and Cardinals set to face off, New England areas are doing everything they can to entice local skiers and riders to make the day about the mountains instead of the couch. With no Patriots on the horizon, check out Liftopia.com, which has released some of the deals it will be offering this Sunday, its second annual Super Bowl sale.

Here’s the list of deals for New England and Quebec:

Jay Peak Resort, VT - $32.50 - save 50%
Crotched Mountain, NH - $21.99 - save 57%
Wildcat Mountain, NH - $39.99 - save 38%
Jiminy Peak, MA - $36.99 - save 34%
Ragged Mountain, NH - $42.99 - save 27%
Black Mountain, NH - $29.00 - save 26%
Bolton Valley, VT - $43.99 - save 25%
Smugglers Notch, VT - $48.99 - save 21%
Sunday River 2-Day Pass, ME - $107.00 - save 20%
Wildcat Learn to Ski Package, NH - $55.00 - save 20%
Stoneham Resort, QC - $32.00 (USD) - save 21%
Mont Sainte Anne, QC - $39.00 (USD) - save 20%

For the skier-football fan who insists on both, we’d like to point out that Crotched is just 60 miles from Boston (65 from Worcester). For the skier who could care less about the game, Jay Peak at 50 percent off isn’t so bad, no?

  1. Cannon always has 2-for-1 on Superbowl Sunday (I think $64 this year). On their mid-week 2-for-1 days, they usually do $39 for a single ticket if you're by yourself and don't want to wait around for another single or odd-numbered group. I'm not sure if they do that on the Superbowl Sunday 2-for-1, though.
