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


Snow Alert- Utah, Maine, Cascades - Washington
Ski New Hampshire
The bottom line is we got up to 20 inches of fresh snow at New Hampshire ski areas! Talk about a different December than the past few years. All of NH's ski areas now have a nice base of natural snow to work with and the forecast is for continued cold weather!

Storm Totals, Up To 20"!
This storm was predicted to be a decent Nor'easter and it definitely delivered! With up to 20 inches hitting the ground, trail counts are skyrocketing and that should continue as the weekend approaches. The forecast is calling for snowmaking weather as far as we can see. Currently we are skiing and riding at 8 resorts with Cranmore, Dartmouth Skiway, Gunstock, Ragged Mt., and Wildcat all planning to open this weekend also! Check our snow report below for more details.

Explore the Austrian fairy tale on skis, snowboards or snowshoes.
Come to Austria for a storybook winter wonderland complete with quaint village streets, candles burning in the windows, and the jingle of bells on horse-drawn sleighs.

Next to this romantic, Old- World charm, you’ll also find world-class skiing and snow boarding and endless nightlife that draws an elite international crowd that come here when they aren’t in Aspen or Vail – but at about half the cost.

Snow-covered mountains, the Après-Ski activities after a day on the slopes and the Austrian "Gemuetlichkeit" will give your stay in Austria a magic touch no other destination can duplicate. Come and relax - you'll be surprised how fun and affordable a winter vacation in Austria is!

Jackson Hole
Yesterday the new snow brought powder conditions in the morning, and as the temperatures increased, the creamy surface made for fun carving throughout the day. More snow is expected to accumulate today so come out and make some turns

Heavenly Valley
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. ( MAYBE THIS WEEKEND )


Cortina d'Ampezzo is getting ready, with great ideas for ski lovers and not only them. In this period though, we have devoted our attention to skiers particularly, make available to them a practical sheet almost a guide that summarises all the useful information for organising a skiing holiday to Cortina.
SNOW GUARANTEE AND FUN ASSURED Saying "snow" is not enough: during the last winter season many European ski resorts remained closed for a long time due to a lack of snow. The Cortina d'Ampezzo ski slopes instead offered excellent skiing conditions even with the relatively low natural snow coverage. Indeed Cortina was Italys only resort to keep its slopes open from 3 December until 25 April! Everything was made possible also thanks to the artificial snow making systems which, by serving some 90% of the slopes, guarantee your skiing fun. Plus, in Cortina 90% of the slopes are found between 1,500 and 2,900 metres, with ideal snowing conditions. The maintenance of the ski runs takes place daily and with great care. Every night, our snowcats work tirelessly until the slopes are groomed to perfection for the next days enjoyment.
So, see you soon for super skiing enjoyment in Cortina d'Ampezzo!


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
