“TIME TO RIDE” IN CRESTED BUTTE FOR BIG GAME WEEKEND
Monday’s lift tickets are the cost of the cumulative score of the game
MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – January 24 – The penultimate games of the National Football League season took place this past weekend, leaving only two teams to battle it out for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Join Crested Butte Mountain Resort and celebrate the big game between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. Butte 66 will be hosting their annual Big Game Party with food and drink specials, raffles and contests throughout the game.
Guests should plan on sticking around on Monday, February 5, as the price of Monday’s full day lift ticket will be based on the final combined scores of Sunday’s game. The price will be determined using the following formula: $1 per point scored. If the final score is Philadelphia, 24, and New England, 21, the price of a lift ticket for Monday will be $45. However, there is a cap in the event of a high-scoring game; guests will pay no more than $65 for a full day lift ticket.
The big question arises, how low could it go? If the score at the end of the game is 3 to 0, tickets at CBMR would be $3 on Monday. As a reference, the highest scoring Super Bowl in history was in 1995 when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the San Diego Chargers, 49–26, for a total of 75 points. The lowest combined Super Bowl score was in 1973 as the Miami Dolphins bested the Washington Redskins, 14–7, but CBMR is willing to bet on the odds and regardless give everyone a discounted day of skiing.
