A 16-year-old snowboarder who was arrested after a fatal collision with a female skier at a Wyoming resort last week is a Crownsville resident, the Teton County prosecutor's office said yesterday. Authorities declined to identify the youth and said formal charges had not been determined. "The matter remains under investigation, and I'm sure it will continue to receive significant scrutiny from my office until we're in a position to make a charging determination," said Steve Weichman, the Teton County attorney.

I'm not sure DeBeers would exactly approve, but last year I gave my wife, Dianne, the gift of diamonds for Christmas. Black diamonds, that is. North American ski areas use colors and shapes to signify the difficulty of runs. Green circles indicate easy trails suitable for novices. Blue squares grace intermediate slopes steeper in pitch. The most vertical terrain, those gnarly drops that help orthopedic surgeons afford exotic vacation retreats, garner black diamond designation. Although an avid skier, Dianne's favorite slope-sign color has always been blue.

Led by 49-year-old Carroll County resident Scott Strzelczyk, some residents from Maryland's five westernmost counties want to secede from the Old Line State and start their own, fifty-first state. Here's an alternative suggestion for the folks who've aligned themselves with the Western Maryland Initiative: Just move to West Virginia. It would be a simpler solution for everyone involved. For starters, Maryland-haters wouldn't need to orchestrate and execute secession; all they'd have to do is pack their stuff and drive no more than two hours to reach the state line.

Elk were all around us -- big bulls with magnificent antlers, calves and babies staying close to their mothers -- at the %J National Elk Refuge just north of Jackson, Wyo.From October through December, more than 8,000 elk, the nation's largest herd, make their way from the slopes and meadows of Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks and national forest lands down to the the refuge. Here they are fed pellets of pressed alfalfa hay, 7 to 8 pounds per animal per day -- 30 tons for the herd -- during the most severe winter months when deep snow makes it difficult for them to find any grass or shrubs to eat.We went to see the elk at the end of a ski trip to the Tetons.

Driggs, Idaho. -- Darn, Bill, if you didn't go and get yourself on the wrong side of the mountain.You had to vacation in Jackson Hole, which has been described as a ''high-altitude Palm Beach,'' when you could have come 35 miles over Teton Pass here to Driggs, where the people who make beds and wait tables in Jackson Hole live.Jesse Jackson has said that when you come to a fork in the road, Bill, you take the fork. But he was just being kind.When it comes to picking folks to spend your down-time with, you and Hillary invariably go for the big-time lawyers and Hollywood types, to the neglect of all the perfectly nice people in places like Driggs.

There's a 6-foot snow base -- unspoiled powder on the mountain's backside; moguls the size of VWs over yonder; meticulously manicured cruisers everywhere; and virtually no lift lines anywhere. A perfect ski day.And you couldn't care less.Let's face it -- schussing from summit to base all day just isn't everyone's idea of a great time.Keeping this in mind, many resorts have evolved into theme parks of sorts, offering activities not only for the avid skier, but also for his or her slope-impaired companions as well.

Home in the TetonsBetter known for ranches than resorts, Jackson Hole has a new retreat to help change its rough-and-tumble image. The three-story Amangani opened in October within Spring Creek Ranch, a 1,000-acre wildlife area that looks across meadows and pastures to Wyoming's Teton Range.Built of Oklahoma sandstone, Douglas fir, cedar and Pacific redwood, the resort features the clean lines and simplicity its Far Eastern heritage might suggest. Amangani, which means "peaceful home" in Shoshone, is the first American resort opened by Amanresorts, a Hong Kong-based chain.

Within the gargantuan boundaries of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming are 2,500 acres of chutes, bowls and open slopes dropping sharply from a summit 4,139 feet above the valley floor. To ski anywhere comparable to Jackson Hole, 12 miles northwest of the town of Jackson, you have to go to Alaska, the Alps or the Andes. There's simply no other ski area like it in the continental United States. And this is just the terrain within the resort's boundaries. Beyond the boundaries, the landscape is even more awesome.
