Soldier Hollow Hosts 2006 U.S. Cross-Country Championships
Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah, plays host to the Olympic Cross-Country qualifiers Jan. 3-10. "This is the last chance for America’s best skiers to earn a spot on the 2006 Olympic Team," said Howard Peterson, Soldier Hollow general manager. Cheer on the country’s best, then jump on the course after the races and see how you fare. The event is free for spectators and discounted trail passes and ski rentals available.
The snow keeps falling in Mammoth and we're loving it. Four more inches fell last night. It's been a warm storm with the snow level right around 8,000 feet - but thanks to our elevation (11,053 feet at the top) temperatures on the mountain were cool enough for snow!
Dress to keep dry today because it's wet out there. This storm will linger over our area for the next few hours but is expected to clear later in the day. Beautiful blue skies are back in the forecast for Christmas weekend.
With a base depth of 5 to 7 feet of powder, packed-powder and machine-groomed snow, lifts expected to operate today include chairs 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 25, the Lower Panorama Gondola and the Village Gondola. Chair 12 is on weather hold. We will be updating our online snow report on a real-time basis as conditions and operations change.

Snow has pounded Colorado and it’s in the forecast through the holidays. Resorts are loving it, as many areas such as Wolf Creek, Vail, Steamboat, Sunlight, Ski Cooper, Monarch, Loveland, and Crested Butte already have 100 percent of their mountains open. Silverton in southern Colorado had nearly two feet overnight. Colorado Ski Country USA sends word, “With 27 powder days in the last six weeks and over 14 feet of powder already falling on Colorado slopes this season, Colorado is serving up the best early season skiing and riding in decades. Fresh powdered snow is forecasted daily through the Christmas holiday
