    I've got a personal rule where when the beers start, the ski boots are already off for the day.

    Let's put it this way, most any resort, regardless of what pass they are or aren't a part of, or even if they're a stand alone, had better be busy that week (and obviously "busy" is a relative term...

    More to do with today's society and the perspective that when something goes wrong, it can never be the "fault" of the individual, but instead must be the fault of someone/something else.

    That yellow color you saw is more than likely just natural ground water flowing and then freezing on the rock face. If you've ever seen the headwall on Ripcord in the non snow months, it has way...

    Most likely due to the simple reality that getting Superstar ready for the world cup is a 24hrs a day effort.
