In case you missed it on Tuesday, we've got a free five-night ski getaway lined up for one lucky Ski & Board subscriber. And unless you happen to be a late-night talk show host, you should be feeling pretty lucky.

The Skull From Skull and Bones at Auction

The first rule of Yale's most secret society is that you do not talk about Yale's most secret society. (Just ask Dubya, John Kerry or its legions of members who didn't run for president in 2004.)

Val Kilmer's Blankets
REAL GENIUS

Val Kilmer's Blankets

Yes, Iceman has joined the blankie trade. Through his website, he's selling two blankets of his own design (and made with Pendleton) to benefit charity. We'll say this much: he's better at designing than playing Batman.
