Roadtrips Announces 'Follow USA Hockey' Packages for Vancouver Winter Games
December 21, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsWhen the USA last held the Winter Games in 2002, both men and women's hockey teams made it to the final rounds against Canada, and both left with Silver medals. In February 2010, they will be looking for redemption as they compete on their rival's home ice. Roadtrips, specialists in sports travel, has hockey packages available for American fans that wish to see their players go the distance in Vancouver.
Although space is limited, Roadtrips still has accommodations available for these games at the finest first-class hotels in downtown Vancouver, such as the new Coast Coal Harbour Hotel or The Sutton Place Hotel. Whether you're there to cheer on the men's or women's team, your hotel is always close to the action, and constantly at the heart of the Olympic atmosphere.
"USA hockey has always been a strong contender at the Winter Games," says Dave Guenther, President of Roadtrips. "The turnout of supporters during the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City was tremendous, and having the Games in neighbouring Canada next February will no doubt draw many supporters to cheer them on."
Particular hype has been following USA's men's hockey team, as management has been tightlipped about who will make the team, and who will have to wait until 2014. Either way, fans will be looking forward to January 1, when players will be announced to the team's roster during NBC's broadcast of the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.
Fans can choose to follow these much-hyped players - or the highly skilled women's players - from the beginning of the tournament to the end. Or, they can customize their package to pick the games they want to see. Round robin, qualification rounds and playoff rounds are all available, allowing fans to decide which games they want to see, and making travel arrangements accordingly.
3 Day/ 2 Night Follow USA Hockey packages start from $1,295 per person are based on double occupancy, plus Roadtrips can customize each package according to the needs and desires of the individual traveler. Assistance with air travel arrangements to and from Vancouver can also be arranged.
