This powder-filled point-of-view footage from Jackson Hole was shot during the months of March and April. Not bad for spring skiing. Jackson Hole is now closed for the winter season, so enjoy this helmet cam video as a prelude to next year.

This helmet camera footage shows a ski flyer—someone with skis and a parachute—literally soar from the top of Chamonix's 12,600-foot Aiguille du Midi, over an avalanche, to the valley floor. You're going to want to watch this—trust us.

I-70 at Glenwood Canyon re-opens
Almost four days after a massive rock slide closed a key Colo. I-70 ski corridor, traffic was flowing again in both directions. Extensive repairs are still needed, but a 200-mile detour is no longer required to drive to the Aspen valley and Steamboat region.

Traffic started flowing again at 3:05 pm Thursday through a key segment of Colo. 1-70 as crews had worked around the clock to open the damaged 17-mile "choke point" in the highway system. More repairs are still needed to open all four lanes of traffic, and the speed limit has been reduced to 40 mph from 55 mph, with loads wider than 14 feet prohibited from the roadway. A rockslide early Monday over the Hanging Lakes section of I-70, just before Glenwood Springs, had closed the highway, spewing boulders—some the size of semi-tractors and weighing up to 66 tons—onto the roadway.

We get hours of video from resorts touting their goods. This one made us laugh. And the 40 percent cut in season pass prices is no joke.

What’s it going to take to have Big Chad put you into a new season pass for next year? Big Sky special events coordinator Chad Jones clearly has a future in selling used cars, but until that time, he’s pushing a Spring Cleaning Sales extravaganza at the Montana resort for the 2010/2011 season. With prices reduced more than 40 percent, skiers can purchase the Big Sky Gold Unlimited Season pass for $799 until April 30.

Drive and ride green to keep our slopes white with CLIF BAR's new eco-ski travel site

Your base layers? Organic cotton. Your water bottle? Reusable and BPA-free. Even your skis are made with sustainable bamboo cores.

Yes, once you're on the slopes you ski a mean green streak. Unfortunately, driving to the mountain burns fossil fuels and gives you serious eco-guilt.

The route up Quandary Peak
SKI’s backcountry blogger, Andrew Beekman (a.k.a. Alpine Andy), rings in the new year at 14,000 feet—frostbitten, wind-pummeled and far from the summit of Colorado’s Quandary Peak. And yes, he calls this fun.

Teton Pass Ski Area
Got $279K? A small Montana ski area is looking for new owners, or it will close shop this season.

Teton Pass Ski Area, a 26-trail operation in the Montana Rockies, will see its two lifts grind to halt this winter if new buyers aren't found. The resort has been on the market for the past few years at the asking price of $279,000. A lucky buyer inherits a 1,1010-foot vertical drop across 114 acres, with 3,400 skier visits tallied last season. A fine community hill. And with upwards of 250 inches of average annual snowfall, we see plenty of potential here, indeed. It just needs a little love.
