Expert skiers and snowboarders who'd like to take on the steeps in Huckleberry Canyon at the Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort off Highway 50 near South Lake Tahoe now have a guided snowcat option. Instead of hiking to reach the terrain beyond the lift-served areas, the bold can ride in a heated snowcat to access untouched powder in 320 acres of open bowls and gladed tree runs, as well as descents through rock chutes and drops over cornices and (yikes!) cliffs. This terrain has long been praised by Tahoe locals as some of the best and most accessible backcountry in the region.

An avalanche of red mud and rock killed at least 120 people, including 43 children, when it thundered down a mountainside and onto a slum area, officials said today. Some residents estimated up to 500 people were missing in the scores of buried shacks. At least seven of the children killed were attending first Holy Communion parties when buried under the landslide Sunday in Villa Tina, an impoverished area of the industrial city of Medellin.
