Pro skiing is alive and as well as ever, and the entire troupe--men and women--will again race in California this winter. The men's division is called the U.S. Pro Ski Tour, but don't be fooled. It's really the Austrian Pro Ski Tour with most of the leading racers heading home to that country every spring with fanny-packs full of U.S. dollars.

Far below the mountain's peak the skier glided down a snow ridge, carving S-curves through the sparkling powder. Tucking into a crouch, he schussed headlong down the slope and onto the flat. The brisk, early morning ski run was a sensuous plunge through spring sunshine and crisp mountain air into a miles-wide bowl of new-fallen snow. It was the sort of experience that makes the 81-mile Haute Route, through the western Alps, the best-known, most prestigious high-mountain ski tour in the world.

The women's portion of the World Cup ski tour, always separate and never equal to the men's, could become a media darling this season, thanks to a controversial new competition format designed to boost sagging television ratings for ski racing. The format change could also strengthen the relationship between the women's tour and the United States, where the women have become almost as popular as the men.

This national park is a spectacular place any time of year, but in winter, there's a special magic about it that only somewhat adventurous skiers can fully appreciate. After the summer crowds have departed and the first snows of winter have added a splash of white to the color scheme, a chill quiet descends on Yosemite, broken only by the traffic noise of cars laden with bulging ski-racks.

It's 8 a.m. but that doesn't stop them. The train has hardly cleared the station and it's time to pull out the six-packs. While we're dreaming of breakfast, these guys are about to start some serious beer drinking. Except for these ice fishermen, a few trappers, a couple of other north-woods residents and some train personnel, the cars are deserted. We're on the work train because the tourist trip on weekends is jammed.

World Cup ski racing is paying its annual March visit to North America and the trouble that has dogged the circuit since December is tagging right along. Sunday at Aspen, Colo., about 50 of the world's leading men skiers refused to race in a giant slalom, claiming that the course had been inadequately prepared. They formed a human blockade just below the starting gate and said, "Forget it." Today, those same racers are scheduled to compete in a slalom at Heavenly Valley.
