China Peak hosts Super Bowl shindig

A snowboarder kicks loose snow from his board as he rides up Chair 6 at China Peak.

Kickoff for Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens isn’t until 3:30 p.m.

That means skiers and snowboarders have most of the day to get their runs in.

The folks at China Peak are well aware of this, and the Huntington Lake resort unveiled a special promotion with 49ers fans in mind.

If the 49ers exit the Superdome hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, Sunday’s lift ticket will also be valid for any Sunday throughout the rest of the season. (Feb. 17 is excluded.)

In addition, season pass-holders get happy hour prices ($2 off drinks) at all four of China Peak’s bars.

Conditions at China Peak are pretty good right snow. A surprise storm Sunday afternoon dropped 3 to 5 inches in addition to the 3 to 5 inches that fell early Sunday morning.
