    For those of you who are still studying and are frustrated with the amount of days that you have to sit in class while there is freshies on the mountain, I've found the solution. Instead of the semester at sea, try the semester at ski. Westminster College in SLC, Utah offers a winter program called "Winter at Westminster" where you can"add 70+ days to your outdoor winter repertoire while you earn 12-16 transferable credits from one of the west's academic powerhouses." Checkout the video they've set up on You Tube.

    003 Lebanon and 2010 Olympics

    Because skiing has long united countries that participate in winter sports, I've been wondering how the Israel/Lebanon conflict has affected our snow-loving brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Regardless of political and religious views, I think we can all agree that the real tragedy is how people from the region might not have access to the Lebanese resorts this season. That's right, Lebanon is home to a few of the regions most convenient mountains--Faraya and The Cedars have "undergone multi-million dollar investment[s] over the last four years." Despite the infusion of capital to the aspiring resorts, it's unlikely that these sites will see a rise in tourism. There's something about regular rocket attacks that doesn't inspire a lot of confidence from travelers. However, the ski resort might be the best place to avoid things like suicide car bombings--I don't think that taking a chairlift hostage has the same effect. For more information on these resorts, checkout www.skilebanon.co.uk and www.skileb.com.

    On the other side of the world, Vancouver is already preparing for the 2010 Olympics. Whistler-Blackcomb will be the venue for all of the skiing events, but no specific dates have been scheduled. It's also famous for the "Couloir Extreme" run which has been labeled as one of the top ten steep in-bounds runs in the world. So, weather you're stoked about the terrain Whistler offers or the excitemt around another Olympics closer to home, we should probably start making our plans to visit BC soon. Information about the Vancouver Olympics can be found at www.vancouver2010.com and Whistler at www.whistlerblackcomb.com.

    Also, an update on our favorite baseball player Bode Miller. As earlier reported, Bode had a one-game contract with the Nashua Pride to raise money for his new charitable foundation to further cancer research. The Associated Press reported that, “Miller didn’t get any hits, but he stole one from Brockton when he made a leaping catch, then tumbled onto the warning track in left field. The crowd went crazy and Millers teammates mobbed him.” Bode, we’re proud you’re giving back, but we sure hope you stay focused on skiing.

    Podcasts about skiing are a great way to make sure that you know the latest information about equipment, snow conditions, industry trends, lingo, and whatever else might help you impress your friends. The problem is that most podcasts are not worth the time it takes to search through and listen to all of the junk. Therefore, I’ve taken the liberty to do this for you. Below is a list of the most worthwhile podcasts:

    1. Podski is a combination of podcasts that will soon be found on PODANGO, but for now, you can subscribe here. When we are up and running in a month or so we will offer a regular audio podcast on basic industry info as well as instructional video for those wanting to better their skills--bumps, tricks, pow, park, rails, boxes, air, trees, steeps, crud, etc. Photos on this post are screen shots from our video. For now, check out the latest audio podcast by subscibing above.
    2. Freeskier Magazine podcast is an excellent program that includes film trailers and even some comic relief with episodes like one recently published instructing subscribers on how we can make our own ski lift. I GIVE IT A 10.
    3. Ridertech is a very well made video blog of regular skiers doing regular stuff. Nothing special here—it’s just good music, good skiing, and good terrain. Get’s me jazzed! RATING… 8
    4. Poor Boyz have put themselves on the map with a video production sponsored by Salomon called Ski Porn. We’ll see if they can regularly produce a good podcast, but they’ve yet to prove themselves. THEY GET A 7 mostly because it’s not all skiing.
    5. Snowfix makes a very entertaining podcast, but similar to Poor Boyz it’s not all skiing. Personally, I enjoy watching all riders, skiers, skaters, etc. push the envelope, but if it’s not your bag, then don’t subscribe. IT’S A 6.

    A basic search for podcasts about skiing will yield around 13 producers. Take my advice and stick with the few listed above. I’ll make sure I update this list for you periodically so check back with us.
