Silver Mountain Resort celebrates the 12th Man with $12 lift tickets Sunday, Feb. 1

Silver Mountain Resort celebrates the 12th Man with $12 lift tickets Sunday, Feb. 1

Silver Mountain Resort said they are "deflating" the price of their lift tickets down to $12 Sunday, February 1st in honor of the Seahawks Superbowl appearance. The resort's lifts will operate from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. so skiers and snowboarders can get a full day of mountain fun in before the big game.

Those who come to Silver Mountain on Sunday for the game will also have the chance to win a season pass for the 2015-2016 season.

This is also the resort's 9th year running a special promotion in Noah's Canteen in the village. Here is how it works: If the second half kickoff is returned for a touchdown everyone present in the bar with an open tab at that time will receive a free season pass for the 2015-2016 season.

Although that seems unlikely, the resort noted that a kickoff return for a touch down has happened at the beginning of the second half for the last two years. First by Baltimore Ravens speedster Jacoby Jones returning the ball 108 yards for a touchdown setting an NFL postseason record, then last year Percy Harvin did it for the Seahawks.

Elementary schools from Eastern Washington and North Idaho have just a few more days to sign up for the Fit for Bloomsday...Fit for Life youth fitness program. After the entry deadline, over 60 schools are expected to have signed up, with more than 6,000 kids participating in the ten-week running and walking program.

“We’re really pleased with the support this program receives from principals, teachers, PE instructors and parent volunteers,” said Bloomsday Race Director Don Kardong. “They’re really making a difference in the fitness of kids in the community.”

Fit For Bloomsday...Fit For Life—dubbed Fit For Bloomsday for short—was developed by Bloomsday volunteers in cooperation with PE instructors, coaches and parents in the Spokane area. The Lilac Bloomsday Association provides information, materials, structure and incentives for the 8-10 week program, which is administered by school personnel and volunteers at participating schools. Now in its 30th year, the program prepares kids to run or walk Bloomsday while teaching them the importance of fitness, nutrition and safety.
