Clean Air and Cheap Lifts

ALA NM Ski Card

It's no secret that lift tickets prices keep rising. It's also true that clean air and blue skies are part of what makes skiing in the Southwest great. Appropriately, the American Lung Association of New Mexico is offering a 10-pack of lift tickets to New Mexico and Colorado ski areas for $125. Yes, that's $12.50 per lift ticket! Not only is this a great deal on lift tickets it also benefits the American Lung Association of New Mexico.

I Can See Everest From My House

Mount Everest

Here at SnowCode Headquarters we love mountains. And looking at snow-covered mountains is even better. I am excited to say that I can now see Mount Everest, all 8,848 meters of it, from my house. No, I didn't move to Tibet. But thanks to the people of Ev-K2-CNR there is a live webcam showing good old Chomolungma.

Refuge in the Mountains

Mountains are a source of inspiration, recreation, beauty and solitude. Mountains hold the snow that we ski in winter and then melts in Spring and Summer to water our fields and gardens. Swiss researchers have found that mountains may act as bio-diverse refuges for plant and animal species as global warming alters the climate. Here is just one more reason to respect and preserve the mountains we love.

The Party's Over?

When is the ski season over? Is it when the lifts at the local ski area stop running? Do you travel farther and farther to find an open ski area? Or, do you chase winter across the globe so the ski season never ends? I haven't crossed the equator to ski yet, but I have climbed a mountain for some 'post-ski-season' turns.
