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.

FEMA wants you to participate in earthquake drill Thursday

FEMA wants you to participate in earthquake drill Thursday

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is encouraging participation in a national earthquake drill this Thursday, October 16.

FEMA says over 40 states are at risk of earthquakes, but surveys report fewer than one-third of adults have participated in a drill in the last year. That's why they're spreading the word about this year's Great ShakeOut.

“Past practice and previous participation in a drill can make all the difference in an emergency,” FEMA administrator Craig Fugate said. “Everyone should know how to drop to the ground, cover themselves under a sturdy table or desk, and hold on to it until the shaking stops. It needs to happen with enough regularity that it becomes second nature during an actual earthquake.

At 10:16 am local time, participants should do the following:
