"Fieberbrunn is a place with gauranteed snow," said the elder Fieberbrunn local Sepp Pletzenauer when interviewed for the Austria segment of Way Of Life. "It has the open terrain, nobody around, beautiful powder snow, and I just go and make my path."

If the world’s most famous ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, hasn’t been on your bucket list, you’re probably doing the whole skiing thing wrong. The numbers are staggering: 8,171 acres, 200+ trails, 5,000+ vertical feet, 460+ inches of snowfall: you get the idea. The place is massive, but of course it takes a keen eye and some strong legs to figure out how to navigate it well and find the best stashes, both on and off the mountain. We caught up with our friend, Whistler local and
The lofty idea to link together Mt. Hood’s Timberline Ski Area and the town of Government Camp came one step closer to reality with the recent acquisition of Summit Ski Area by Timberline. According to KATU news, on Tuesday the tiny ski hill was purchased by Timberline with the hopes that it can expand the accessibility of skiing and riding at the Mount Hood area.
