It's official -- we've thrown the switch on the transition to our new server! If you're viewing this message, you're viewing the new and improved First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine. We've taken the opportunity of our move to also implement a significant upgrade to our Liftlines BBS, and we hope that you like the changes. <BR> <BR>As with any major transition, there is bound to be a minor glitch or two. Should you find one, please be sure to let us know via email at <a href="mailto:webmaster@FirstTracksOnline.com">webmaster@FirstTracksOnline.com</a>.

Who's not looking for a way to ski or snowboard for free?! Watch this space during the coming winter season, when we'll be giving away a pair of lift tickets per week for resorts throughout North America, drawn at random from those who post to the No-Bull Ski Reports or the Liftlines BBS during the week of the drawing.

Kima won the first lift ticket giveaway here on our Discussion Boards, a pair of tix to Loveland Ski Area - congratulations Kima! <BR> <BR>We'll continue giving away a pair per week until they're all gone, which should last throughout the season. Please be aware, though, that <B>you have to post with a valid email address in order to win</B>. Our first "winner" lost out because their email address was invalid, so we had to draw a second name. <I>We can't give you the tickets if we can't contact you!</I> Rest assured that this is not an attempt to collect email addresses for other purposes - we will never, ever spam you. Our mass emails only go out to readers who consciously, willingly and deliberately subscribe to one of our Listservs. <BR> <BR>Good luck to all of you, as we give away a pair of tickets to Brundage Mountain, Idaho this week.

Happy New Year!! <BR> <BR>Congratulations to <B>Chromer</B> for scoring last week's free tickets to Durango Mountain Resort, nee Purgatory. <BR> <BR><CENTER><IMG SRC="http://www.firsttracksonline.com/discus2/clipart/cbmrlogo.gif"></CENTER> <BR>This weeks's donor of free lift tickets is <A HREF="http://www.skicb.com/">Crested Butte Mountain Resort</A>. Dramatic contrast between the historic Victorian mining town and the modern ski village just three miles away makes Crested Butte one of the most fascinating resorts in the Colorado Rockies. While it's best known for its adventurous terrain - 824 acres of steep, ungroomed powder for the extreme enthusiast - every level of skier or snowboarder is catered to here with a well-balanced mix of novice to advanced runs. <BR> <BR>Due to staff vacations (<I>Gone Skiin'!!</I>), giveaways in the month of January will run for two weeks rather than the customary one week. <BR> <BR>Remember, all you have to do to enter to win is post a message to one of our <FONT FACE="comic sans ms">Discussion Boards</FONT> at <FONT FACE="comic sans ms">First Tracks!! Online</FONT>! <A HREF="http://www.firsttracksonline.com/tickets.htm">Click here</A> for full details.
