It seems hard to believe, but only three weeks ago, there was still some trace of snow in Tuckerman Ravine, and some folks even took advantage of it for some July skiing. Alas, any snow is now certainly long gone from Mount Washington and every other peak in New England, so you'll have to head west in order to find any.

Despite the heat wave gripping the entire country, Colorado's Keystone Ski Resort has managed to save a sliver of its winter bounty and is open for tubing through Aug. 7. The resort has two lanes open for a refreshing dash down the snow. Sessions last one hour, cost $29 per person, and may be booked between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

No matter how much you complained about snow last winter, that has to look good right about now.
