Skiing and Snowboarding in Telluride, Colorado
... Ski Resort (565 Mountain Village Boulevard; map) that makes people repeat visitors who enjoy Telluride’s thousands of acres of skiing and snowboarding terrain and short lift lines.

A blue...

Zermatt and the Matterhorn

Zermatt and the Matterhorn
... the Swiss village of Zermatt (map).  As one of the world’s most recognizable peaks, the Matternhorn is beautiful, majestic, touched by a snowy peak almost year-round. Or so I’ve heard.  You see, that isn’t my photo.  I’ve been to Zermatt twice, and I’ve never seen the Matternhorn.  It’s often clouded in a foggy haze, particularly in winter.  Or, such was my experience. Nonetheless, if you miss Zermatt’s main attraction, you will not be disappointed,...

Swiss Winter Vacation without Skis

Swiss Winter Vacation without Skis
The Glacier Express rolled across sparkling carpets of snow. The train swished across viaducts and popped in and out of tunnels. I leaned back in my seat. Around each hairpin turn of the track, another scene from a child’s picture book greeted me. Chiselled mountain peaks, glinting tongues of glaciers and dazzling white sheets of skiing pistes crawled past. Weathered-brown Alpine chalets graced the valleys in a picturesque fasion only the Swiss are capable of. With an average speed of 35 km...

... can’t walk in a winter wonderland? The Museum of Contemporary Art will get festive on Saturday, when its front lawn will become a real life snowscape. The fun project is called Primavera 2009: snowfield, and it’s the work of Sydney artist Michaela Gleave. What a lovely break from the snooty and pretentious art exhibitions we so often see! Michaela hopes her piece will encourage onlookers to reconsider their relationship with the natural environment, but I predict most will simply lap up...

Snow Day Here in Seattle

Much of the greater Seattle area enjoyed a snow today, with many businesses, governmental offices, and school closed. Flying into Sea-Tac Airport mid-day wasn’t too bad.  In fact, it took me nearly as long to drive home from the airport as it did to fly from San Francisco to Seattle! No snow when I left home a few days ago.  This is what was waiting when I arrived home this afternoon.  There were lots of kids with sleds, and various boards sliding down the hill having a great school-free...
