Jan. 27, 2004--Every year on Super Bowl Sunday skiers who are football fans have a dilemma: go skiing and possibly miss a drive or stay home to see every darned snap and commercial. A few resorts this year will give skiers and pigskin fans a chance to have their buffalo wings and eat them too. Some offer cheap skiing and smooth beers while others tout big screen-TV's and great sound systems. It's all an effort to keep you skiing and partying from first chair to last whistle. After all, why listen to the game on the drive home? You would miss all the good commercials.
