For example, Elvis was famous for his large appetite that, oftentimes, could only be satiated with huge peanut butter, jelly, and bacon sandwiches, as well as firing a shot into his television at one point, and of course, his extravagant spending habits.

However, one aspect of Elvis Presley's life that many may not be familiar with is that he was a big fan of skiing and snowmobiling in Colorado. In fact, The King owned property in at least one of the state's famous ski towns and there is documented footage of Elvis and his longtime wife Priscilla Presley snowmobiling on Aspen Mountain with some friends that has luckily been preserved for many years.
