Meribel Merry Christmas from Igluski Meribel
Last week, lucky Iglu team member Harry spent 3 days in the North American resort of Vail. Here is his mountain report.

Reporting from the Mountain - Vail:
?The powder was amazing, there was loads of it everywhere and it was still snowing when I left.? - Harry, 20.12.05.
Harry came back from Vail raving about all the fresh powder, and if like him you are a powder seeker, his top tip was to explore the glade runs. These are clearly marked runs leading you through the trees to your own patch of untouched powder. Due to the flags marking the way, you can leave the slopes safe in the knowledge that you will finish back on the piste, as opposed to the middle of nowhere, paying a fortune for a taxi home... not that we?ve ever done that!

Snow Reports - A White Christmas

What an exciting weekend for snowfall in Europe. The Austrian Alps are white due to loads of new snow over the weekend. Between 20cm and 70cm of snow has fallen in Austria and Switzerland, with Kaprun now recording the deepest snow, at a total of 254cm.
The snow over the weekend is going to continue this week, so we are looking to enjoy a white Christmas throughout Europe. Switzerland and Austria are expecting snowfall in most resorts on Christmas Day.

Ski News - Val Gardena: Men?s Downhill
Marco BuechelMarco Buechel of Liechtenstein squeezed in to win his first World Cup downhill race by two hundredths of a second in Val Gardena, Italy. With strong winds and snowdrifts, the Saslong course had to be shortened and the start of the race was delayed by 75 minutes. Despite these conditions Buechel made it down in 1 min 27.99 sec, while other skiers suffered with the poor visibility. Michael Walchhofer of Austria finished second for the fourth time in the Val Gardena downhill. Erik Guay of Canada was third, following his second place in Friday's super-G. Italy's Kristian Ghedina came fourth, struggling with the bad conditions and Bode Miller only managed eighth, but regained the lead in the overall standings from Norway's Aksel-Lund Svindal, who was placed 26th. In the overall standings Miller has 442 points, while Walchhofer moves into second with 420 and Svindal drops to third with 417.
