Snow and Bronco Glory
I love it when events come together.
The Broncos win the AFC championship, and it starts to snow in the mountains.
After over a week of glorious blue-bird skies, but without a flake of snow, we were just praying for the next storm to blow in.
And, wonder of wonders, just a few days before the Super Bowl, it starts snowing again in the Colorado mountains.
It's no secret that anybody in the tourist industry in Colorado prays and makes pagan sacrifice that it will snow a blizzard any time the Home Team is on TV.
And we're just so amused that this Super Bowl is gonna be played in New Jersey. In January.
Srsly? What was the NFL thinking?
But it's all good. The national media is emitting Cassandra-like cries about the game-day conditions.
Our thought: our Broncos are up to the challenge of New Jersey humidity.
In the meantime, we're looking for the high mountain tailgate party to end all tailgates at the High Mountain Lodge (indoors, of course).
The new snow that is falling about an inch an hour right now should make for awesome skiing conditions this weekend, and our weekend special should ensure that guests won't have to brave the freeway with tens of thousands of crazed Bronco fans trying to get back down to Denver on Sunday afternoon before kickoff.
Join us for the game:
