Green snow! Brodie Mountain Ski Area of New Ashford, Massachusetts — also known as Kelly’s Irish Alps — was so committed to an Irish heritage and theme that the resort would make green snow to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  Despite top-notch snowmaking and this legendary annual tradition, Brodie closed in 2002.

This is the second consecutive weekend of FIS World Cup ski races at Garmisch-Partenkirchen with the women racing downhill today and SG tomorrow. The finish area may have changed but the course remains a legend. Click here and look for History to learn more about the Kandahar race.

The 2015 race brochure gives a heavy nod to the heritage of this Bavarian ski tradition. Susanne Riesch is the featured female racer. Can anyone identify the male racer?
