 got snow ?              News from The Steep, Deep & Extreme International Big Mountain Slopes


Snow Alert, -Alyeska, Snowbird

Patrol has already given us new trails such as Gondi Line and Boomauger but tomorrow will be the real expansion day. Once the snow has stopped, they should be able to drop ropes from King Pine to West Mountain.

If corduroy is your thing, we'll have miles of it and it will be buttery soft on 42 of our open trails.

And even though it's dumping out, we're still making snow full bore. Tonight they're working on Tote Road Extension, Upper Timberline, Lower Winters Way, and the Superpipe. Look for top to bottom access as early as tomorrow!

All For One Passholders can bring a buddy from now until Feb. 16 and their lift ticket is just $39. Please note: The Bring a Buddy program is valid one time per pass.

With terrain continuing to open and more snow on the way, this is a great time to be at the Loaf. And we've got events happening all month, so check our event calendar for info on the Charity Summit, White White World Week, Bud Light Concert Series with Strangefolk and the Samples, plus lots more. www.sugarloaf.com

Jay Peak
Flurries and light snow yesterday yielded about an inch of natural and light snow last night may have gotten us another (Patrol hasn't been out yet, so we'll update you at jaypeakresort.com all day today). Real Deal starts today. Forecasters are calling for more than a foot so things are about to start improving pretty rapidly. Look for The JFK/Wedel to open at some point today with all 8 lifts running from 9 until 4:00pm. Conditions, although improving, are machine groomed and variable with thin and bare spots in spots. www.jaypeakresort.com

Monterosa - Italy
The Monterosa Ski area is situated where the mountains rise up to form a bridge between Valle d’Aosta and Piedmont: 180 kilometres of perfectly created pistes are supplied by technologically advanced facilities and have a touch of retro ambiance for lovers of powdery snow-scapes and the purest mountain setting
Valle d’Ayas, Valle di Gressoney, Valsesia: three alpine valleys at the foot of Monte Rosa host one of the leading Italian skiing centres

New lift of next season
Punta Indren Lift
The yard works will last for all the year 2006 and for a big portion of the year 2007. Prevision of opening for the 2007/2008 skiing season, even if this is absolutely premature at the moment, only if the weather conditions will be favourable during the whole of the works.
It will be a funifor, close relative of the already tested lift that links Pianalunga to Passo Salati, with a very low impact on the surrounding area. A not so invasive lift with very interesting technical characteristics. It will carry up to 740 people per hour with two cabins transporting 60 people each. People will embark at 2960 meters above sea level in order to reach 3275 meters at the top. It will be a trip a little longer than a kilometre and a half and will last about 5 minutes

Mt Hood Summer Camp

2007 Outlook
Currently, the base at Timberline (6000' elevation in the parking lot) is at 125" In the past that has been enough snow to have summer skiing last until Sept 1. We're in the midst of a cold spell. The snow we receive during the rest of winter should extend summer into great training through next fall.


AROSA, Switzerland (Jan. 14) - Olympic silver medalist Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, VT) defended her 2005 world title, taking gold Sunday in snowboardcross at the FIS Snowboard World Championships in Arosa. U.S. Snowboarding riders Seth Wescott (Carrabassett Valley, ME) and Nate Holland (Squaw Valley, CA) took silver and bronze in the men's SBX.

Jason Smith (Basalt, CO) was eighth and Alex Deibold (Manchester Center, VT), who has yet to compete in a World Cup race, was 15th. Swiss Sandra Frei was second for the women with Norway's Helene Olafsen in third, while French rider Xavier Delerue took gold for the men.
"It's great," said Jacobellis, a Stratton Mountain School graduate. "It's awesome to be in the finish corral and seeing two of my riders up there. I can't always follow what's happening with the guys because I'm trying to get up there and get everything ready for my next race - it's a great showing."

The most successful SBX rider in history, male or female, Jacobellis resume reads like this: 2006 Olympic silver medalist, seven World Cup victories since 2004 in only nine entered SBX events, three consecutive X Games wins ('03-'05), Chevrolet U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix overall champion ('05) and now back-to-back World Championships gold medalist.

"I'm glad people can look at me in this way as coming back strong," she said, closing the book on missing gold in Torino. "It's having no questions in their minds - I'd like to be recognized for what I've accomplished, rather then my mistake. I know my mistake will carry over for a long time, probably until the next Olympics...this will hopefully dilute that some."

U.S. Snowboarding Head Coach Peter Foley was dually impressed with his riders after placing five in the top 15 and three on the podium.

ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria (Jan. 14) - Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) and Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) - who were 1-2 a month ago in a downhill won by Kildow in France - finished 1-2 in a World Cup super combined race Sunday with Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY) finishing fourth for the best World Cup finish by U.S. women in history.
Mancuso, who was third Saturday in the downhill, and Kildow filled the top two spots in the downhill portion of the one-day super combined, which includes a run of downhill followed by one run of slalom. Stiegler, who is branching beyond her traditional gate-running strengths, was 14th in the DH.
Mancuso's winning time was 2:09.16 with Kildow - producing the fourth-fastest slalom despite the softening snow - second in 2:09.22. World Cup leader Marlies Schild of Austria was third and Stiegler, who had the second-fastest leg of slalom, finished in 2:10.19. Stacey Cook (Mammoth Mountain, CA) was 20th.
