Elvis Goes On A Downward Slope

LAKE TAHOE, Nev. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Elvis Presley fans are getting “All Shook Up” in freezing cold weather.

Tomorrow (Jan. 5), fans of The King are hitting the slopes at Mt. Rose Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, for the 13th Annual “Elvis Day.”

The special day on the slopes celebrates Elvis’ birthday (Jan. 8), and has skiers and employees – including instructors, bartenders, and rental workers – donning their Elvis best as they maneuver down the mountain.

Spokesperson Mike Pierce says, “It’s a goofy, fun day, but it’s also a spectacle. Everybody loves wearing the glasses and sideburns. All the employees dress up and get into it. Everybody’s an Elvis impersonator that day.”

And while Pierce credits Elvis as the real creator of the snowy celebration, he’ll be getting fat and festive to go on the downward slope and pay his rockin’ respects.

Pierce says, “Oh yeah, I’ll be dressed up. My favorite is the latter period Elvis, a little bit heavy and very sweaty.”
