     US Skiing is "facing major budget cuts," already cutting
$1.2M and looking to cut another $1.3M from its $12.4M annual
budget.  Officials cite fundraising competition from the '96
summer games and "belt tightening from major corporate
contributors" as reasons.  US Skiing CEO Mike Jacki their "break-
even point" will be down to about $9.8M: "We are scaling back and
down sizing to be commensurate with income.  We are going through
budget cuts, trying to be creative and find better ways to spend
money" (Craig Hansell, SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 9/30).
