For the last 11 years, the resort has been celebrating Elvis Day on the slopes around the Kings birth date: Jan. 8.
This year, the resort is holding its King ski- labration on Saturday (Jan. 7), and spokesman Mike Pierce says lots of skiers, staffers and bartenders will be dressed up as Elvis for the whole day.
An Elvis Presley impersonator will sing the Kings tunes at the top of the run and Pierce promises a team of skiing Elvae will be jumping around the slopes.
Although skiers are encouraged to dress up as the King of their choice, Pierce admits theres one Elvis outfit thats more popular than the rest.
As he puts it, The event is a big spoof so youre more likely to see people skiing in rhinestones than leather jackets.
