At least 150 people stranded in a tunnel in the Himalayas for up to five days by avalanches struggled to safety through eight-foot-deep snows Friday after rescuers managed to reach them, said police in India's northern state of Jammu and Kashmir. The other 48 people who had sought shelter in the 1.5-mile-long tunnel emerged as well and were being housed in army barracks nearby. They will probably be brought out today, police spokesman Abdul Roof said from the city of Srinagar.

Heavy snows brought avalanches and landslides crashing down onto a highway in mountainous northern India, killing at least 183 people and stranding as many as 500 others in a tunnel, Indian officials and media said Thursday. A large-scale rescue operation was being mounted in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, with the help of the Indian army and air force, to rescue people marooned on the main Jammu-Srinagar highway.

With so little snow at home, the Taiwanese ski team trains on grass--and it's risky. "If you fall on ice, you slide. If you fall on grass, you plant. The injuries can be much greater," slalom racer Tang Wei-tsu said. Training for the downhill is too dangerous on grass, so none of the Taiwanese skiers entered those events at the Winter Olympics. Said Tang: "We basically compete against other countries that have no snow: India, Greece, Morocco, the Philippines, Swaziland."
