Generally set at 2,500m or higher, glacier ski areas benefit from the low temperatures at altitude, especially at night, so you can expect smooth groomed runs in the morning, soft slushy bumps later on. Any glacier area worth its salt puts a lot of work into its terrain park, making up for a more limited ski area with enough kickers, rails, pipes and boarder/skicross tracks for all levels to while away several hours – and enabling you to perfect tricks in soft conditions. Can I stay out on the slopes all day?
When Sophie Ellis-Bextor gave birth to her first baby, she had been dating the father for precisely eight months.

"For years, we sold robes that were about operational efficiency,” Eubanks said.

For Maddie Ziegler is the hauntingly brilliant young dancer who first drew our attention in the creepy yet captivating video for Sia’s Chandelier. Reaching well over a million views within the first 24 hours of its release, the video, which saw Maddie don a now iconic nude leotard and Girl Interrupted-esque wig, instantly catapulted the former star of reality TV show ‘Dance Moms’ to superstardom, and since then her fame has continued to rise.
