Hate the Super Bowl? Hit the slopes for cheap

For all you heartbroken 49ers fans out there, this might be just the thing.

Every year, the folks at Liftopia.com - the San Francisco discount lift ticket service - offer discounted tickets for Super Bowl Sunday. Click HERE to see the list.

The general pitch is this: If you want to find short lift lines and wide-open slopes, go skiing or snowboarding during the Super Bowl.

For those heading to Tahoe, this year's Liftopia Super Bowl sale will get you cheap passes at Squaw and Alpine Meadows for $49. The site also has Kirkwood passes ($54.99), Homewood ($41), Mt. Rose ($43) and Diamond Peak ($29). Boreal might have the best deal, with a buy-one-get-one-free deal for $49.99.

There you have it: Put the chips and dip down and go skiing.
