Recreation Mecca.

Only 20 miles from Mt. Bachelor, Sunriver Resort is a year-round recreation Mecca. There are three championship golf courses, tennis courts, outdoor swimming pools, fly-fishing, rafting, horseback riding, 32 miles of bike paths, an observatory, and a private marina on the Deschutes River for canoeing and kayaking. Sunriver Resorts is 15 miles south of Bend and three and a half hours southwest of Portland. Condé Nast Traveler ranked it in the Top 50 Ski Resorts in North America. Visitors can also use a swimming pool, health spa, kitchenette, free parking, bar, and business center.

the Caucasus Mountains in Chechnya
The president of the war-torn republic wants to turn Chechnya into the next Switzerland. Stranger things have happened.

Ten years ago, if you'd have told us there would one day be skiing in the desert, we would've told you to lay off the après. Of course, today you can ski -- albeit indoors -- at a year-round snow dome in Dubai.

Sleeping Giant reopens
Cody, Wyoming's local hill reopens for the first skiing and riding since 2005

SKI Magazine loves its little home hill of Eldora Mountain Resort outside Boulder, Colo. Everybody should have a home hill: big enough to get in some steep thrills, small enough so the kids won't ever get lost, with a cafeteria that's more high school than high style, but whose chili is second to none.

Deer Valley scenic
Get some skiing and some stargazing in with these sweet Sundance Week deals from Deer Valley -- autograph sessions with Redford not included

Personally, we've never been to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. We've been to Robert Redford's Sundance Resort and bombed some runs in a manner worthy of a ski film and eaten some of the finest food in ski country at the Tree Room. But the film festival? Nope. We always thought the on-slope crush of stargazers would be too much for us.

18 Feet for Whistler
A heavy November brings record-breaking snows to B.C.'s biggest

Guess we should stop bragging about Colorado now. We've just gotten word that some serious records are being broken up at Whistler Blackcomb -- and it's barely December.

Ajax Tavern
Aspen-Snowmass has resurfaced after a six-year improvement session, but economic uncertainty still lingers

More flights, more beds, a spruced up Little Nell and an El Niño winter just cranking up—sounds like the perfect setup for a strong winter at Aspen-Snowmass.

How a resort clears its runs can have serious impacts on local ecosystems

How does your favorite ski resort cut its trails? Does it "clear" them, or does it "grade" them? The answer could mean a better environmental report card—or a worse one. A recent study by two researchers out of the University of California–Davis found that grading was much worse for sub-alpine ecosystem health—that is, how the hillside does in terms of erosion control, water retention, soil chemistry and plant diversity.
