Mammoth Mountain -Ca
Great News! Ski Mammoth Mountain Top-to-Bottom this Weekend Mammoth offers the most skiable terrain in California. Ski Cornice Bowl and Stump Alley this weekend at Mammoth Mountain. We're planning to open seven lifts and more terrain with over 2,200 vertical feet. Stay tuned to 888.SNOW.RPT for up-to-the-minute conditions

Crystal Mountain -Wa
Crystal is opening with limited operations for the weekend! The Discovery, Chinook Express & Forest Queen chairlifts will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9am-4pm. Early season conditions do exist so we ask that you ski and ride with caution. Upper mountain will not be open this weekend because it was hit pretty hard by wind earlier this week and the coverage is still too thin. Due to the high freezing level expected early next week, we will close on Monday until further notice. So come and get it while you can www.skicrystal.com

Silver Star
The Summit Chairlift and the Silver Queen will both be in operation. The Summit Chair will service four runs - Far Out, Sundance, Whiskey Jack, and Main Street. There will be NO offloading at mid-station. Silver Queen and Creekside runs will be open on the new Silver Queen lift. The Star Kids Centre will be open, with the Star Kids and Discovery Magic Carpets in operation.
Tickets will be available at a special early season discount of 25% off.

Kirkwood is now open 7 days a week with Chair 5 accessing intermediate and advanced terrain. Cold temperatures have allowed the resort to continue snowmaking efforts and winter weather is forecasted for this weekend. For the jibbers in the crew, Kirkwood is hoping to have a few rails and boxes available for the weekend. Check Kirkwood's website or snowphone at 877.KIRKWOOD for current conditions and all updates regarding opening expanded terrain.

The ultimate Ski Bum's dream! The California Gold Pass gives you access to the slopes at 34 resorts without blackout dates and is FULLY TRANSFERABLE! Stop by Kirkwood's booth at the LA Ski Dazzle show November 29th through December 2nd to sign up or enter online at www.skidazzle.com

Customs, Market This is considered the biggest Christmas market in Switzerland, with roughly 120 vendors displaying their wares in the Obere and Untere Gasse alleys, on Ochsenplatz, Kornplatz and Martinsplatz squares. As in earlier years, the Chur old town association sticks to its traditional concept, allowing only handcrafted Advent and Christmas objects from the region for sale. The festive event is further enhanced with various musical presentations. The market takes place in the alleyways and squares of the old town of Chur and lasts on Friday from 14.00 to 21.00 hours, on Saturday from 10.00 to 16.00 hours. www.churtourismus.ch
