Where to Watch Super Bowl 50 in Sun Valley, Aspen, and More

View as Map

Super Bowl Sunday can be one of the best days to get on the mountain. If you don't need to catch all the pre-game chatter or prep your house for guests, you'll be rewarded with empty lift lines and maybe even some powder turns. That doesn't mean you have to miss the matchup between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos though, as kickoff starts at 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time. To make sure you have a place to watch near the slopes, Curbed Ski has put together a list of the best places in ski country to watch Super Bowl 50.
