Landed in Denver with youngest son a few days before the Redskins-Broncos Superbowl. Felt so intimidated in the airport with everyone wearing orange crush colors, lots of signage, etc. that I actually took off the Redskins large button I was wearing.
We skied at Copper. Lots of activity: someone had hiked up the mountain across I70 from the resort and painted "Go Broncos" in huge orange letters about 1500 vert. ft. up.
The resort held pep rallies with the Denver cheerleaders, had a parade with floats and the day of the game completely painted a large slope fronting the resort in orange.
I asked management if Copper was considered an international resort, and answer was "Yes". But when I then inquired about the location for the Redskins Rally I received an icy stare and a pointing to a nearby phone booth.
You might remember this is the game the Redskins scored at will in the first half. Needless to say, the nearest bar/restaurant I visited at halftime was like a morgue...and yes, I did wear my Redskins gear. Later I saw the Manager and pointed out that my Redskins rally was far more successful than all of their Denver Bronco rallies.
Quite a ski/Superbowl experience.
PS: Actually was at Copper for a later Denver Bronco Superbowl which was enjoyable because they won and were not playing the Skins.
