Los Angeles Times - QARGHA, Afghanistan — He was 19 when he took up the gun, firing potshots at the Soviet soldiers who came to swim near his village. Now, after 23 years of fighting, the mujahedin commander is perched once again above the dusty brown shores of Lake Qargha and plotting strategy. His new mission: building an Alpine resort.http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/rss/topstories/*http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&u=/latimests/20040810/ts_latimes/askirunnearkabulmaybeapathtopeace

hey that is nice! although an "alphine resort" in afganistan sounds a bit weird (in a funny way).

Lets just hope that he isn't corupt and makes illegal money out of this, also wonder who is going to afganistan to ski when you can go to switersland, austria etc.

Sounds like a cool idea. I'd go, but I have two major problems: 1. I dont know how to ski or snowboard 2. I'm not sure that going to Afghanistan for vacation is the safest idea

That being said, why go to Afghanistan when I can travel around in Canada and ski at Myt. Tremblant or Whistler. Even sill, it just goes back to problem #1.

Gah! Its for people in Afghanistan (and surrounding areas) that aren't going to go to the Alps or Canada or the US to ski.

Think!
