    Who needs lifts when you have snow mobiles, Pisten Bully's and endless area to make your own winter wonderland.
    Saw the show as well.

    Brits have a two year stint, with overlap of staffing every year.
    Russians hardy heros. Sleep exposed in their tractors, dig out and fly planes from under the snow.
