Not bad for late March and days before the first official day of Spring. More snow is in the forecast for today as blizzard warnings have been posted beginning yesterday evening. Forecasters are calling for several hours of near white out conditions with 6-10" of snow expected for this morning.

Purgatory Mountain
A perfect day to ski and snowboard at Purgatory Mountain. The sun is out, there is hardly a cloud in the sky and we have great spring conditions on the hill. Though you may be tempted to pull out your golf clubs and bicycles, don’t miss these conditions. Plus, a storm is expected to move into the area tonight with new snow possible throughout the week.

Innsbruck - The Winter Sports Capital, twice host to the Winter Olympics offers Old World history combined with some of the best ski mountains in the world capital. The city works hard to maintain and improve its twin character as a top-class ski area and sophisticated urban center. Innsbruck, with its striking location at the foot of the Alps, offers winter guests a tempting choice of great skiing and snowboarding in six different areas.

As the ultimate winter Olympic venue, Innsbruck has hosted the world famous event twice based on an excellent variety of terrain and an impeccable infrastructure for skiers and non-skiers. The nearby village of Igls boasts the legendary men's Olympic downhill run, and stunning views of a picturesque Innsbruck below.
Free shuttle bus service links the various ski areas, and the "Super Ski Pass" is the skier's key to 310 miles (500 kilometers) of ski-able terrain and 200 lifts. The pass also covers the Stubai glacier, and even gives holders the option of excursions to St. Anton and Arlberg and Kitzbuhel.
Innsbruck is a living treasure house of history. Once an imperial capital, it embraces 800-year-old traditions adding to the authentic charm and elegance of the place. The city also has world class shopping, fine restaurants, and many sights from the historic "Golden Roof" to the fascinating Alpine Zoo.
For all people longing for the genuine winter sports fun, the Stubai Glacier is the optimum oppurtunity! On more than 50 kilometres of ski runs they may take their chance not only on intensive downhill skiing, carving and boarding, but cross-country skiing can be practised wonderfully on the alpine trail of a length of 4,5 km. 21 installations, among 4 cabin lifts, 6 chair lifts, 9 ski tows and training lifts and 2 magic carpets offer ski fans a trendous winter sports resort, and active athletes from all over the world a maximum skiing pleasure at 1.750 to 3.200 m above the sea level.

The new six person chairlift Fernau links the Fernau to the Gaißkarferner mountain. Snowboard freaks can find ideal conditions at the newly created "Boarder´s paradise" including Quarterpipes, Spins, Table Tops, Pro Jumps and a - 100 metres long - halfpipe . For carving fans there is a special run at Daunferner, regulated by a stoplight, where the feeling for bends can be experienced intensively. Two giant slalom runs and a high-speed run at Eisjochferner complete the offer for winter sports fans.

The adventurous and daring can be close to the "eternal ice" on the climber´s steps of the ice tower at Gamsgarten station, since this is an ideal training area for fans of climbing on ice. Every wednesday an introductory course climbing course takes place.

Snowbird Hunts for Avalanche Skills
Transceiver Contest Expands to California , Montana , More Utah Resorts Snowbird, Utah – In its continuing effort to promote avalanche awareness, Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort and Wasatch Backcountry Rescue are offering a third annual avalanche beacon hunt for people of all ages, Saturday, March 31. A championship round of Beacon and Eggs will take place Saturday, April 7, at Snowbird.
“We hope to help the community enjoy Utah ’s big mountain terrain safely by offering engaging and fun activities that encourage backcountry awareness and education,” states Beacon and Eggs organizer Roger Kehr.
Multiple avalanche beacons will be buried in a one-acre area at Snowbird. Tracker beacons are wrapped in a protective pad to simulate the feel of a buried victim and placed below the snow surface. After the beacons are placed below the snow surface, a snowcat will groom the entire area to hide any tracks. Searchers will proceed to the buried transceivers using their beacons in “search” mode. Groups can work together, sharing the prizes for recovering the beacon.
Following the hunt, prizes will be given to those who located the beacons. Backcountry Access, Black Diamond, Snowbird and Wasatch Backcountry Rescue are sponsoring Beacon and Eggs and donating the prizes.
The March 31 event is free and open to all people with a beacon, probe and shovel who want to test their skills at finding a buried companion if involved in an avalanche. Other resorts around the country offering similar Beacon and Eggs contests include Alpine Meadows, Calif. , and The Canyons on March 17, Solitude, March 31 and Big Sky, Mont. , April 1. Winners of the other preliminary competitions will join the Snowbird winners for a Beacon and Eggs transceiver championship Saturday, April 7, at Snowbird. Organizers are inviting additional resorts to participate in the unique program designed to encourage the use of and practice with avalanche transceivers.
All participants in the Saturday, March 31, competition are required to fill out an entry form between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. The hunt starts at 8:15 a.m. and will take place near the Snowbird Tubing Hill. Take Little Cottonwood Road to Snowbird Entry 4.
