Now that the season has officially begun, with a little snow on the slopes and much more presumably on the way, which ski area will you be visiting? They all want your money, of course, and some are coming up with creative ways to get you to their neck of the woods. Squaw Valley in the Lake Tahoe area, for example, has a bungee-jumping tower.

Snow SUMMIT in Big Bear will ban downhill mountain bikes from its lifts next summer and is debating whether to restrict where cross-country mountain bikers may cycle at the resort. The action comes after a biker filed a lawsuit seeking damages in a crash last year. Officials at the resort, where bikers have wheeled for nearly two decades, say they don't make enough money on summer riders to offset the liability of downhill biking.

Chocolate brown and covered with white spots, the pair of spotted owls were barely visible in the dappled sunlight of a thickly wooded canyon a few miles north of here in the San Bernardino Mountains. Still, wildlife biologists Bill LaHaye and John Stephenson moved quietly beneath the owls' perch and used a long metal pole with a nylon noose to snare the birds and bring them to the ground without harm. The biologists fasten a numbered metal band around the leg of each owl they capture.

The Supreme Court, in a case involving ski equipment rentals, ruled Monday that state taxes may be imposed when bankrupt companies sell their assets. In another ruling, the high court turned down an appeal by hazardous waste companies aimed at forcing the government to adopt tougher environmental rules. In the bankruptcy case, by a 6-3 vote, the justices said the taxes may be imposed on such sales and on a buyer's subsequent use of the assets when bankrupt companies are ordered to liquidate.

The Snow Valley Ski Resort had already called it quits on a nearly snowless winter when Pacific storms last week left behind a thick blanket of the white stuff and the best skiing of the season. "It went from nothing to excellent," said General Manager Benno J. Nager, who reopened the San Bernardino mountain resort this past weekend.
