The Winter Park Ski Train isn't exactly the speediest way to get to the slopes, but it's a fun one. Which would you rather do on your way to the ski hill -- sit in zero-to-60-to-zero traffic, or have a nice breakfast and read the paper? We'd prefer the latter, and we'd guess you would too. So when the train went kaput last year -- after former owner Anschutz Co. sold the line to a Canadian company -- we were a bit bummed out. No longer.

Who doesn't have a helmets-saved-my-life story? A friend of SKI Magazine likes to tell the story of how a helmet saved her, not from a cliff-jump gone wrong or an underdone backflip 540, but from being a klutz. Our friend had just popped off the lift at a local Colorado resort when she slipped sideways and fell to the ground.

Had she not been wearing a helmet, she says, a concussion -- or worse -- was inevitable.
