Snow Alert -Alyeska,
-HAPPY NEW SNOW YEAR
The inch of snow we received yesterday was just enough to make our corduroy thick and soft - a cruiser's paradise. Today temperatures on the mountain remain twenty to thirty degrees higher than temperatures at the base, so stay near the summit to enjoy the warmth. Plenty of activities are planned to ensure that you ring in the new year right.

Borssen Ends Schild's Slalom Domination
Kildow looking forward to slalom training
SEMMERING, Austria (Dec. 29) - Sweden's Therese Borssen won her first World Cup race Friday night, capturing a slalom when Marlies Schild of Austria, the first-run leader and unbeaten in three previous slaloms, made a mistake at the end of her final run. Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO), the only American in the second run, failed to finish.
Borssen, who was third behind Schild in the first SL of the season over Thanksgiving Weekend at the Sirius Satellite Aspen Winternational, had a two-run time of 1:55.15 with Austrian Kathrin Zettel, who had the fastest second run, second (1:55.40). Schild, who had been untouchable in slalom until nearly crashing into a slalom pole near the finish line, was third in 1:55.57.
Kildow, the only U.S. racer to qualify in the 30-degree afternoon sunshine for a second run, straddled a gate under the lights.
"Oh, man, a really tough day. But, y'know, you can talk about positives all you want - and there were a couple today - but at the end of the day," SL/GS Head Coach Chris Knight said, "it's results on paper that count...and tonight we don't have a result. Not a one."
He was pleased with Kildow qualifying for the nighttime second run (i.e., top 30 in the afternoon run) "because Lindsey hasn't had any slalom training at all. She caught an edge in Val d'Isere [France] last week and now this straddle...but we've got a couple of days of slalom training coming up, so that should help her a lot." The schedule for the coming week calls for three SL or giant slalom races.
The next women's race is the Snow Queen Trophy race, another night slalom next Thursday in Zagreb, Croatia, and then the annual GS-slalom pairing Jan. 6-7 in Maribor, Croatia.

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Mountain) is the southernmost glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. Consisting of 13 peaks, among which Shanzidou is the highest one with an altitude of 5,600 meters (18,360 feet), Jade Dragon Snow Mountain stretches a length of 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a width of 20 kilometers (13 miles). Looking from Lijiang Old Town in the south which is 15 kilometers (nine miles) away, the snow-covered and fog-enlaced mountain resembles a jade dragon lying in the clouds, hence, the name Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
