You Ski? No, iPod.

Planning a trip to Grand Targhee, Wyo.? Looking for tips on finding stashes of its famous powder? Or maybe you'd like to take a bump lesson on Big Thunder? The intel is a click away as Targhee launches the industry's first podcasting (called "skicasting") service this season. Plug your iPod or MP3 player into and download the goods, from mountain tours to instruction tips to a local ski bum's musings, then play them back while you're on the hill. "It's like having a virtual instructor and mountain guide," says resort spokesman SusieBarnett-Bushong.

Better yet, no tipping.
