Forty-eight passengers stranded, then roped to safety, after historic Tram breaks down. No injuries reported. Reopening expected by weekend.

Legal Weed in Vermont? Governor Announces Qualified Support

As skiers wait for snow, Legislature tackles burning issue.

The après beer is so much a part of skiing. But which resort will be the first to feature a slopeside marijuana lounge?

That might still be hard to imagine, but another ski state, Vermont, may soon join Colorado and Washington in making the sale of pot legal.
