VAIL, Colo. -- This is America's gentle giant of ski resorts, a colossus whose mountain and reputation are dwarfed only by its ambience and amenities.For the second straight year, polls of skiers and skiing professionals conducted by Snow Country and SKI magazines placed Vail at the pinnacle.It is the biggest single mountain skiing complex in the country. It doesn't have the greatest vertical drop (Jackson Hole does), but its 3,250 feet provide plenty of thrills. And if it isn't the most expensive, it ranks right up there.

With 6-foot-4 All-Metro forward Sheronne Vails, Arundel's girls basketball team is best known for its inside game. But in Thursday's state semifinal, the Wildcats showed off the perimeter game that often makes Vails' job a little easier. Talen Watson, Aleisha Henderson and Ariel Ross combined for 30 points - many from outside - and Vails added 14 as the No. 5 Wildcats defeated Urbana, 52-42, in a state Class 4A semifinal at UMBC's RAC Arena. "I think feeding the ball in to Sheronne first, letting her get settled and then when the defense collapses on her, we have a lot of 3-point shooters, such as Ariel and Aleisha, so we were able to play an inside-outside game, which was key," Watson said.

Attractive and airy, the Colorado Ski Museum in Vail is filled with red-faced schussers during the winter.Perhaps the skiers are here to thaw after a chilly morning on the slopes. Maybe a Grateful Dead knit cap in the gift shop caught their attention as they trooped past for lunch. But most likely they ventured here as pilgrims, giving thanks for their sport.The first Colorado skiers were miners looking for gold and silver in the 1860s. They used Norwegian snowshoes to get around. The "snowshoes" were hand-carved wooden boards that we call skis.
