Falls Creek - Australia

We're always happy to be able to say it, but 'everything is open at Falls Creek again'. Currently every run and trail, and every chairlift at Falls Creek, Victoria's largest alpine resort is open and the place is looking amazing. Around 48 - 54km's of XC trails are being groomed daily for both classic and skating, the Kangaroo Hoppet (Australia's leg of the internationally recognised World Loppet series is only two weeks away.
Falls Creek's big events keep rolling out, with the annual Air & Style Big Air event on tomorrow out in the Ruined Castle terrain park from around 11am until 3pm with presentations back in the Frying Pan in the Village Bowl from 6.30pm, and Hip Hop and Snowboarding Unite at Stylewars which will return to Falls Creek on 24 - 28 August.


Mt Buller - Australia

With the weekend looking like it will be a great weather weekend, don't miss out on all the fun and entertainment on offer. Currently -0.2C, we can expect a top of 3C today. A cloudy day is likely with light west to north-westerly winds later this afternoon.
Similar conditions are forecast for the weekend with winds expected to strengthen.
You can expect 17 lifts to be turning today, with a very good cover of firm packed softening snow for skiing and boarding. There’s a huge range of terrain open for everyone to enjoy, so we hope to see you out there having some fun.

Sun Valley- Idaho
Sun Valley Company and its advisory partner, East West Partners, submitted to the city of Ketchum an annexation and zone designation request for the River Run property. They are entering into an annexation process for 140 acres at the base of the River Run ski lift, which is currently located in Blaine County. Development of the property under county ordinances is not feasible and, since it is in the zone of impact of the City of Ketchum, any potential development is subject to approval from the City of Ketchum.

The annexation process includes proposals by Sun Valley Company and East West Partners for development that includes hotel, commercial, multi-family , single family, recreation and open space uses. The plan is consistent with the master plan presented to the public in 2004 as part of the Earl Holding’s vision for all of the Sun Valley Company lands in the valley.

Green Space and River Ecology - Open space corridors are included in the concept plan and protection of waterways and riparian zones occur through setbacks and ecological enhancements. The proposed 15-acre Big Wood River Ecological Park will provide interpretive and education opportunities focusing on the hydrological cycle of the natural riparian environment. Access by bicycle, cross country skiing and pedestrians will be maintained and improved, including the Wood River Trail. Additional public access to the Big Wood River and Trail Creek will be created.

Gateway - Transportation studies suggest that intersection of Highway 75 and Serenade Lane might be improved with a roundabout or signalized intersection that could be designed as a significant arrival opportunity for Ketchum, Sun Valley and the ski area.

A lot of people have heard of artificial surface ski slopes, sometimes called dry or dry land slopes and they've maybe heard of Ski Dubai, but few people know there are hundreds of dry ski slopes from Brazil and Mexico to China, with a lot of different manufacturers too." says www.snow365.com's co-owner Rachel Gunnels. "There are now more than 50 indoor snow centres too, in 25 countries around the world from Finland to New Zealand. Chances are in most major country you visit today there'll be a year round ski facility of one sort or the other."

Endlesswintersnow will be changing it's format late Oct 2009. I regret that the host Geocities will be closing at that Endlesswintersnow will be either reduced to "Blog only" or will need to migrate and rebuild on a new server.

Your input is welcome and needed. Yes, a new ad partners would help quite a bit towards expenses. At the same time I realize there is no easy answer to the national economic issues at hand or Endlesswintersnow's required hosting relocation during a down economic time. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
