Researchers from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, have demonstrated, using two phenomenally precise atomic clocks, that the passage of time really does change depending on where you are. One of the clocks was placed just one foot above the other and, thanks to the lesser gravitational pull of the earth exerted on the latter, showed that less time had elapsed when they examined it. Comforting to know that Einstein's theory of relativity is actually correct. It would have been terribly inconvenient, not least for the physics community, to have had to reopen that old question.

"Present it to him. Set the hook. Pull your rod up to 12 o'clock. Now, snag him, snag him!" There follows about 10 seconds of giggles from my ponytailed fly-fishing instructor, Ryan Schmidt, who up until this point has been the epitome of laid-back fisherman cool, standing waist-deep several yards away from me downstream.

Forget the flat, icy slopes of Killington in Vermont, or the speed traps and over-eager ski patrols of Vail in Colorado: the real beating heart of the US ski industry has always been the powder-laden, character-filled and downright scary resorts that cling to America's steeper mountains. Some of these towns have histories stretching back to the gold-rush days, others are authentic cowboy hang-outs where Stetson hats outnumber beanies. Yet more are mining settlements that happen to back on to incredible slopes. All share the small-town Americana culture that Springsteen sings about, and tend to be as wild and carefree as their bearded patrons.
