Tommy Moe continued a downhill fight against the temptations of success when he finished tied for third in Wednesday's downhill at the World Cup Finals. It was the third consecutive top-three finish for Moe after he placed 55th and 20th at Aspen in the first two races after his Olympic downhill victory. The post-Lillehammer letdown prompted suggestions Moe had perhaps put his career on cruise control. But Moe, 24, vowed Wednesday, "I'm here to stay."

Some slopes have shut down for the season, but skiers have until May 27 to hit the slopes at Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler, Canada. Whistler, home to the 2010 Winter Olympics' alpine ski events, is 80 miles east of Vancouver.  Blackcomb's sister peak, Whistler Mountain, closed for the season Sunday, but Blackcomb had more than 36 feet of snow this winter and is enjoying one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Spring brings some unique ski conditions, such as “corn snow.” It's the rough, granular snow that results from alternate thawing and freezing.
