Super Bowl Sunday is a great day for skiing and snowboarding. You’ll find uncrowded trails and an absence of liftlines coupled with midwinter conditions. While others prepare to watch the big game this Sunday, February 3, hit the slopes — and score some of the best deals of the season on lift tickets. Liftopia, the largest online marketplace for discounted ski lift tickets and mountain activities, has launched its annual Game Day Sale with exclusive discounts of up to 70% off at more than 200 ski areas.
