Thirty years ago last month, Alexander Cushing surprised the world by staging a near-perfect Winter Olympics here. But what, skiers soon began asking, have you done for us lately? For a long time, the answer was not much. At one point, Cushing's mountain manager called the ski lifts junk, and his employees acquired a reputation as the rudest individuals this side of New York's taxi drivers.

Two people found guilty of felony animal cruelty have been sentenced to prison. Neglect in the treatment of five horses led Fresno County Superior Court Judge Robert Oliver to sentence Phillip Black, 46, to two years and his wife, Mary, 53, to 16 months. Graphic descriptions of the condition of the horses when they were found in April contributed to the convictions. Two dead horses were found in a corral while three others were sick, starving and blinded by infected eyelids, authorities said.

The unpredictable weather of the Sierra Nevada gave 665 athletes from 30 nations a never-to-be-forgotten moment 39 years ago today at Squaw Valley, Calif. It was the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympic Games. Trouble was, no one could see a thing. A snowstorm was in full fury, in near-whiteout conditions. Ten inches of snow fell. Then, just as the ceremony began, the snow stopped, clouds parted and the sun burst through, illuminating gleaming white slopes.

Skiing is like having a crush. Nothing else matters while you're in its thrall. You tell yourself you'll have time for other activities but, almost without deciding, you're suiting up, buying the lift ticket, challenging yourself to be the best you can be--and never able to say "This is the last run of the day." Two weekends ago in Lake Tahoe, my infatuation deepened because the mountain there offered me some of the best snow I have ever skied on.
