One woman’s mammoth ski mission starts at Mammoth.

The last day of an extra long winter for Mammoth Mountain, first day of a year-long winter for me. I’m kicking off my global skiathon to benefit disabled sports organizations around the world. I aim to increase exposure, raise awareness and funding for adaptive ski programs through my efforts. Every cent donated will go directly to the organizations, and I plan to add to the list as I travel, helping the local mountain programs wherever I go.

Winter Storm causes travel frustration
Got your spring ski trip all lined up? Don't forget to keep on top of weather warnings, which can kill even the best-planned trips.

Winter storm warnings can be a happy sign your ski vacation is going to be a good one. But they can also mean a delay -- or, at worst, the end -- of a long-planned and long-anticipated trip to the hills. And now things are getting worse. As the rough economy has shrunk demand for travel, airlines have shrunk their capacity for travelers. And as that capacity has shrunk, the New York Times reports, the airlines' ability to accommodate weather-stranded travelers has also receded.

Sky Resort
Five runs, two chairlifts, two ropetows and one black diamond, all for $12. Welcome to Mongolia's brand new Sky Resort.

Some of us over at SKI Magazine are what you'd call armchair travelers. Sure, we get out in ski country -- from Aspen to Zermatt -- but the closest we've come to a truly global, truly fish-out-of-water ski experience is skiing in Korea.

Southwest airlines
Southwest Airlines' no-fee baggage policy is popular with travelers -- and since it applies to ski bags and boots bags, we like it, too.

Like a lot of folks, you might be planning your spring break ski getaway. And like a lot of folks, you may be getting slightly irked at the baggage fees most airlines are now charging -- and at how those fees are constantly changing. For ski vacations especially, those fees can add up, with up to $25 for a bag full of ski clothes, then another $35 for a ski bag -- provided your airline doesn't charge an extra fee for oversized ski equipment, or charge extra for a boot bag.
