Purchase Squaw Valley Lift Tickets & Lessons

Heavenly Valley - Calif
The new Olympic Express detachable-quad chairlift provides high-speed access to Olympic Downhill, three new trails and Nevada Woods - home to some of the best tree skiing in North America - letting guests more easily experience a part of the mountain that has been under-utilized due to the existing fixed-grip lift. Olympic Express also gives guests accessing the resort from Heavenly’s Stagecoach or Boulder Lodge a quicker route to Dipper Express, Comet Express and East Peak Lodge (snowboarders rejoice: no traverse!). The new lift will only take three-and-a-half minutes to ride, compared to 11 minutes on the old chair. www.skiheavenly.com

Panorama - Canada
Taynton Bowl, recently featured in the November edition of Skiing Magazine, is renowned for in-bounds backcountry style skiing. Guests can expect knee-deep powder on signature runs, such as Never Never Land, C-Spine, and Heli-High. Panorama’s Ski Patrol has spent several days in the bowl making it safe for skiers and boarders after last week’s huge snow storm. Riders can expect pockets of up to 100 centimetres of snow - be advised, face-shots are inevitable.

With 70 runs already open, early snow coverage at Panorama is excellent.
Snowmax Card
Skiers and boarders should buy their Panorama/Kicking Horse Snowmax Card now, as sales end on December 26th, 2007. With four days of riding for only $129, it’s the best deal out there!
Visit www.snowmax.ca for more information.

My Switzerland
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
