This week in the world of skiing, we learned more about Vail's motivations for buying Whistler Blackcomb resort. From a business standpoint, it's a pretty smart move. Speaking of ski resorts and ownership, we've got an interesting bit of information from Saddleback Resort in Maine where locals are taking matters into their own hands and exploring the idea of a co-op business model. Elsewhere in the world, a new resort in British Columbia that has plans to break a couple of records received approval. Finally, to round things out, we've got some cool news about a collaboration between ZipCar and Yakima. Get the full scoop in this week's Top Five Fridays!

This week, Vail topped the headlines yet again with their $1.06 billion acquisition of a very well known Canadian resort. That wasn't the only resort purchase that went down though- a 27 year old also introduced himself to the game with a $3.8 million purchase. Speaking of young guns doing big things- a triple cork 1440 was landed by the youngest skier ever in New Zealand this week. Plus, California's Attorney General chimed in on a subject that's been hotly debated at Squaw Valley recently.

We start off this week with an apology. An article that we published last week resulted in forces beyond our control permanently damaging a cherished piece of ski history. From there, we move on to good news for those who call Arapahoe Basin home, as well as North American skiers who are hoping for another snowy ski season. Plus, we have yet another ski movie trailer from one of the biggest players in the industry. Find out about this and more in this week's Top Five Friday!
