Get behind the wheel of the Maui Ski Bus with Steve Fisher.

As the world’s best skiers slide through gates, warming up for the first round of the men’s slalom at the FIS Alpine World Championships on an ice-slick course in Beaver Creek, Colorado, a broad-chested, auburn wiener dog stands front and center in the Red Tail Stadium grandstands on an event producer's desk.

Named Franklin, he wears a rainbow lei and soaks in what sun ekes through cloud cover from his perch.

The Extended Eastern Forecast? More Awesomeness.

Weather guy Mark Breen is loving this winter as much as the rest of us. And he sees more of the same in the longterm forecast. Sorry about that, Western resorts.

Mark Breen’s calm baritone is a familiar part of the soundtrack to life in Vermont, where his detailed daily forecasts air daily on Vermont Public Radio. He’s the senior meteorologist and planetarium director at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, where his Eye on the Sky weather forecasts are produced. Breen doesn’t spend a lot of time riding ski lifts, but says he likes to get out with friends on nordic skis or snowshoes. And he’s a big fan of winter.
