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

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!

Mike Doyle - About.com
If you are looking to spend a season or two working around ski resorts or if you are seriously considering a career in the ski industry, there is no better way to make yourself a sought after employee than to learn the skills necessary to be a bootfitter.
This time of year, Help Wanted ads are hanging in most of the Ski Shops around the country, and a good work ethic and maybe some experience selling skis, boots, and accessories will be sure to get you an interview. However, if you have a reputation as a competent, trained bootfitter you can pretty much take your pick of shops, be a top paid employee with a season pass, and best of all, maybe negotiate a good "6 inch powder rule" [6" of snow overnight you get first tracks and come to work at noon or so!].
If you think becoming a bootfitter is something you'd like to do, but the only experience you have with ski boots is putting on your own, don't despair. There is an option for some training in basic, and even in advanced bootfitting. Masterfit University offers a series of courses around the country that offer a uniform certification recognized throughout the ski industry.
