Skiing vacation gains popularity Skiing has become so popu- lar over the past years (hat some Canadian resorts now re- port that their winter trade ex- ceeds the traditional summer influx. The increased popular- ity of family skiing is the main reason. Family winter vacations in Canada have undergone a drastic increase over the past four years. This trend, coupled with the even greater popular- ity of ski club or group skiing, has prompted a multi-million dollar investment in winter oriented resort facilities from coast Lo coast in Canada. Peak family ski season is Christmas and mid-March. For these periods, the family who ski together are well advised to put their heads together, select a resoil and make their reser- vations well in advance. Mon- day-to-Friday holidays any oth- er time during the mid-Novem- ber to mid-April ski season are fairly uncrowded across Can- ada. On weekends the two lines are longer than mid-week and there is more competition for Saturday night accommoda- tion, so it is wise lo reserve ahead if you are staying over a weekend. Some ski resorts arc com- pletely family oriented. The "homey" atmosphere brings the same families hark year after year who frequently book the same week with relatives or friends and enjoy a week long holiday visit in conjunc- tion with their annual ski holi- day, Most areas retain special in- j stniclors for children. These specialists arc a curious com- bination of professional ski in- structor, foster parent, guid- ance counsellor, and are called upcn to give everything from inspiration and sympathetic understanding to pointers on proper dress for comfort in a coid climate. Skiing skill is determined on the first morning out with spe- cial classes from the uncertain toddler to the more accom- plished miohty miles who are particularly long on enthu- siasm and energy. The parents are assigned to comparable adult classes and here Uie psy- chology of skiing is similar to that of bridge rarely will husband and wife IK selected to ski in the same class un- less upon special request. Rates for the skiing family are pretty uniform but in some of the smaller or lesser known rcsorls the sld-week package may be open to negotiation. Reduced t r a n s-continental air fares are now the key fac- tor in an attractively priced, all-inclusive six-div ski week package being marketed by Air Canada for the coming sea- son. Catering to the ski-minded and the fun-oriented, Canada offers winter a new family look. One well worth the trou- ble.

Yes lucky because my husband and I and our two children are alive. When I think of what might have liappened, 1 shake all over. The fire started in the living room faulty wiring. II was a.m. when I smelted smoke. By the time I realized there was a fire downstairs, I couldn't see my hand in front of my face. 1 awakened my husband, called the fire depart- ment, grabbed the children and made a run for the back slairs. It was so full of smoke we had to turn back. I re- member reading something years ago about wet bedsheet.1; over the head with holes poked through for the eyes. We raced to the bedroom, took the sheets off tile bed, held them under the shower, poked holes with scissors and I carried one child while my Imsband carried the other, down the back stairs to safety. That wet bedsheet stunt probably saved our lives. And now I want to thank you because it w-as in your column j thai I read it at least 12 years ago. J.D.P. j DEAK MRS. J.D.P.: Your letter made my day. Thank you for letting me know. 1 hope every word you wrote will he read carefully by others. Who knows when any of us might need that lifesaving advice? DEAR AXN LANDERS: Alter 22 years and 6 children, my Inishand has found another love. He doesn't want to leave me, says be O.K. in time, and has begged me to be paticnl. He refuses to sec a doctor or a clergyman. I'm ashamed lo say I still love him. Am 1 sick or is he? I would do anything to keep this marriage together. The children don't have a clue. Neither docs anyone else. I'm up one day. sure T can make it and down the next. If anyone ever needed Ann Landers I do. Whet do you DEAR WIFE: Hang on. Get some counselling yourself. You arc Uie only person who can answer this question and it will give you strength. The big question is this: Would you and tiie children be better or worse off williout him? I urge you to honest about it.
