Ted Ligety charges the Super G course during a FIS Birds of Prey race in Beaver Creek, Colo.
Despite stiff competition from several European venues, the Colorado sister resorts will host ski racing's biggest event for the third time in 26 years.

The International Ski Federation announced today that it had selected Vail and Beaver Creek to host the men's and women's World Alpine Ski Championships in 2015.

The FIS ruling council selected the North American venues over Cortina, Italy, and St. Moritz, Switzerland, thus denying Europe its eighth consecutive Championships.

snowbird tram
They don’t call it Snowbird for nothing. Thanks to 100 inches of fresh powder in April alone, spring skiing continues at the Utah resort.

As of April 26, Snowbird stands alone in Utah. The state's other ski areas have shut down for the season, but Snowbird promises skiing through Memorial Day, weather permitting.

Copper Mountain, Colorado, recently hosted the Red Bull 1976 Games, in memory of when Denver was awarded the 1976 Olympic bid, but then activists and politicians campaigned against it and the Games moved to Innsbruck, Austria. Retro skiers dressed in bell bottoms and stretch pants competed in a snowbladecross and an old school air contest, throwing daffys, backscratchers, and the first-ever double-tandem-big-air jump. Here's a video flashback to 1976.

national park week
In honor of Earth Day, all 392 national parks open their gates free of charge this weekend.

Most ski resorts may be closed for the season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get out and enjoy the great outdoors. National Park Week continues through this Sunday, April 25, and the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees across the country—from Acadia National Park in Maine to Zion in Utah. So, grab the kids, hop in the car and drive to your nearest natural wonder.

Chairlift revue
The Whistler Players present the annual Chairlift Revue.

When you ride single on a chairlift, you can meet some pretty interesting people. The Whistler Players in British Columbia have turned the intimate experience of riding with strangers into a series of vignettes for the stage, aptly called the Chairlift Revue. The popular play is an annual event at the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival held in Whistler, B.C every spring.

A family outfitted in helmets at Deer Valley Resort
Thanks in part to TV’s Dr. Phil, the State Assembly Committee in California has approved a strict law requiring everyone under the age of 18 to wear a helmet on the slopes.

It hasn’t passed—yet. But the bill introduced by Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) requiring everyone under 18 to wear a helmet at all California ski resorts has serious momentum. On Tuesday, April 20, the State Assembly Committee approved the bill, entitled SB 880, partially due to support and publicity from an unlikely source: daytime television talk show host, Dr. Phil.
