The World Wrestling Federation, after winning a mini-bidding war for Debbie Reynolds Hotel & Casino, said Friday it plans to convert the bankrupt Las Vegas property into a themed resort to showcase its cast of hulking characters. The WWF was forced to raise its initial $10-million offer after an outside creditor appeared in court to bid $10.5 million. But the WWF upped its final offer to $10.6 million, which was approved Friday by U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas.

Flurries whitened some Southern California mountain areas Saturday but not enough snow accumulated for most ski resorts to open. In Big Bear, Snow Mountain reported that although there had been about three inches of snow overnight, the resort would not open until Christmas at the earliest. The Snow Summit resort nearby has been open for about three weeks, spokesman Greg Ralph said, and was running half of its 10 ski lifts Saturday.

As the helicopter landed, the dogs stared intently at the craft while blinking back snow kicked up by the whirling blades. The pack, mostly Labrador retrievers and German shepherds, waited with their handlers to hop in for a ride to a staged avalanche. Once there, the dogs began the search for volunteers buried in the snow. It was the third day of Wasatch Backcountry Rescue's avalanche rescue dog seminar.

If Kenneth Kahn were to have his message towed on a banner sky-high above Southern California's beaches, it would probably read: THE END. Banner-towing aircraft spark Kahn's ire.

"What started out as one or two colorful airplanes pulling banners has expanded into a coastal stream of advertising," he says.

There are moments when even a fairly decent skier can be reduced to quaking beginner. It happened to me last winter at Baqueira, Spain's premier winter resort, in a Pyrenees mountain valley called the Vall d'Aran. One brilliant morning, I wanted to try an unmarked trail. While the rest of the skiers jumped off the lifts and turned right to the regular downhill runs, I followed my guide left.
