IOC confirms 3 finalist bid cities for 2022 Winter Olympics | Ski Racing

SkiRacing.com reports:

"The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee unanimously agreed that Oslo (NOR), Almaty (KAZ) and Beijing (CHN) would progress from the applicant city phase to the candidate city phase in the bid to host the Olympic Winter Games in 2022.

The decision was based on a technical analysis of the cities’ applications submitted earlier this year. The analysis and subsequent report were made by an IOC-appointed working group of Olympic Games experts who assessed each applicant city’s potential for successfully staging the Olympic Winter Games 2022.

Each city was encouraged to produce a bid best suited to their own unique circumstances, with plans that reflect their own specific vision for how the Games can benefit their cities and regions and ensure positive, sustainable legacies for their populations.”

Five Cool Reasons Why You Should March in the NYC Pride Parade With Us

NYC Pride is next weekend! And in addition to the free stuff we’re giving away, we’ve got five cool reasons why you should march with us:

1. Experience community.

We’re in an era where “community” is reduced to megapixels. Headless Brady Bunch grids of dating app torsos and Facebook friends-of-friends-of-friends can leave us feeling more isolated, not less. Come feel connected to something that’s bigger than all of us. 

2. See the full spectrum. 

NYC compartmentalizes our LGBT community. Because gay men seem to get the most visibility, it’s surprisingly easy to forget just how many lesbians, gay people of color, trans and bisexual folks are living right alongside us. Come revel in our incredible diversity of backgrounds, as thousands of LGBT spectators take to the sidewalks to cheer us on!  

3. Get to know your fellow BUMS.

People join SKI BUMS to make new friends… and that applies to our summertime events, too! Before (and during) the parade, there’s good time to chat up the BUMS. You never know who you might meet!

4. Inspire someone.

There are newly-out people in the crowd wondering, “is anyone here like me?” We want them to know that SKI BUMS offers a warm welcome to everybody. Sure, it’s easy to get distracted by the gorgeous go-go’s. But most of the marchers — and most of the viewers — are just regular folks. Come represent! 

5. Re-enact history.

There’s a huge rush that happens when you pass by The Stonewall Inn, down Christopher Street, knowing that you’re walking through the history of the gay rights movement. Unlike many pride celebrations around the world, the NYC parade is a march — and when you think about how far we’ve come as a community — and how far you’ve come, personally — you’ll finish the day on an undeniable high.

Honey, There's an Avalanche At the Door - POWDER Magazine

 

The first two times we were hit by an avalanche—all controlled slides triggered by Alpine Meadows Ski Patrol, which is contracted by the county to keep the road safe—we were in Mexico and only the garage and our front door were affected, nothing a bottle of tequila couldn’t bribe a few friends into boarding up while we were gone.

But then came the avalanche of 2011, during Tahoe’s fourth biggest winter on record…”
