2006-07 All For One Season Passes On Sale Soon Boarding For Breast Cancer Weekend Last Minute Lodging Special
COMING SOON The reigning greatest deal in the history of eastern skiing and riding is very nearly back. Stay tuned here or at www.killington.com for details on the spring sale of next year's (2006-07) All For One Season Pass. They don't tell me much, but it sounds like passes will go on sale on March 17 and we'll be offering fewer than were sold last year.

Freedom, ease and value are once again staples of this year's pass. Retail discounts, lodging deals, lesson specials and passholder-only coupons are also never far from your fingertips. All at Killington, Pico and Mount Snow in Vermont, Attitash in New Hampshire as well as Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine.
Beginning with a Bachelor Auction at the Wobbly Barn tonight and running through a boarder-only night rail jam at Bear Mountain on Saturday night, we're on the eve of what we sincerely hope is yet another successful fundraising weekend for Breast Cancer Awareness.
These night rail jams have really turned out to be very cool and successful spectator events and this one, of course, will mean that much more. Head up and over this weekend and check it out. Learn more about the weekend's festivities here.

Mammoth Mountain

A cloud has made itself at home right on top of Mammoth Mountain this morning. Two inches of new snow fell last night, and more is expected this morning. It looks like this storm is going to hang around until Sunday. It could leave us with 18 inches of snow or more by the time it is all over. Everyone should also be expecting a drop in temperatures today and Friday.

Dolomiti Region -Italy

This morning the Dolomites awoke under a blanket of snow (20 - 50 cm new snow) and now we have a beautiful sunny winter day with fresh snow.
Skiing under the spring sun! After the extensive snowfalls of the past days (20 to 60 cm fresh snow) on the Dolomites the sun is shining again. Longer days and pleasant temperatures make the spring the best period in the season for skiing. In many valleys of the Dolomiti Superski area - Cortina d'Ampezzo (Falzarego, Tofana, Faloria, Cristallo), Kronplatz, Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi, Val di Fassa, Arabba/Marmolada, Alta Pusteria (Monte Elmo, P.sso Monte Croce), Val di Fiemme/Obereggen, S. Martino di Castrozza (Tognola), Passo Rolle, Valle Isarco (Maranza, Valles) and Trevalli (Alpe Lusia-Bellamonte) - it will be possible to ski until the 17th/18th of April, the Sellaronda included.

Ski Challenge 31st March - 2nd April 2006 During this great event ski enthusiasts have the chance to compete on the slopes of Civetta, Falcade/Trevalli and Arabba/Marmolada following the historic trails. This year sees the return of the unforgettable Super Gigantissimo of the Marmolada combined with the Giant Slalom and the now established Gigantissimo Trevalli/Passo San Pellegrino. An element of innovation is represented by the 4 hours of Giant Slalom by night in Val di Zoldo.

On 26th March 2006 takes place the 10th edition of Gardenissima, with 6 km the longest giant slalom of the Dolomites. Last year more than 500 skiers took part at this particular race.
