With 17 inches of settled snow at mid-mountain thismorning and temperatures cool enough to allowsnowmaking on the giant slalom and slalom courses overthe past two nights, it looks good for hosting theworld's best men and women technical skiers at ParkCity in a couple of weeks. Snowmaking will continuetonight as well, as temperatures are due to dip evenlower over the next 24 hours.

"We are down to the crunch time, but we are still veryconfident we will pull this off," said Melissa O'Brien,the resort's communications manager. "The ideal surfacefor a race course is man-made snow," she added,explaining the resort had been waiting for the rightcombination of cool temperatures and humidity to builda stable base of snow on the competition trails.
