Sunny Okanagan skiers' paradise Try a cruise on Pacific ships High style at low cost By DIANE ALDER When skiers in Vancouver say they "ski the they could mean one or all of I half dozen major eld areas set back among the surrounding ranges of the Okanagan Valley. Together they form an Im- pressive ski map, but they are ittle lowwn beyond the borders of this western Canadian prov- ince sitting on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Mount Baldy at Osoyoos, Apex at Pentidon, Kelowna's Big White, Vemon's Silver Star and the vertical drop of mighty Tod Mountain north of Kamloops arc names the visitor should know and re- member. Along wili West- bank's Last Mountain, they of- fer the land of skiing you can't afford to refuse. One sunny day In April we drove the 300-odd miles from Vancouver to the Okanagan Valley hoping to find the runs and conditions we'd heard about, despite the signs that winter was over. But although the Interior has a longer season than most of the coastal centres, we didn't expect to find fresh powder snow, wintry temperatures and hills almost deserted! Is there anything that compares to a three-mile run in 10 Inches of powder fluff and only two peo- ple sharing the run? It's not always like that In the Okanagan ski areas, but certainly there are no long line- ups, nor any shortage of snow and sunshine, and people are friendly. The Okanagan areas are so closely situated that we skied five in a ten day trip. It's pos- sible to ski them in five days. Although this Okanagan trip could have been enough to satis- fy us, we had to squeeze in one last evening of skiing under the lights at Last Mountain, just out of Westbank south of Kelow- na. Last Mountain has four- arc-lit runs served by a foot T-bar and chair- lift. At 10 o'clock we reluctant- ly packed up the ski gear and headed back to town. We had found what we sought enough skiing to tide us over a whole long summer until next year!

SAN FRANCISCO -Living it up at little cost Is a double treat, and a rare one. But it's possible, the Trans-Pacific Pas- senger Conference reports, for travellers who explore the vast Pacific Ocean by cruise liner. Indeed, TPPC member ships serving the area sail to a host of fascinating ports and offer the chance to enjoy high-style, holiday luxury at relatively low budgets. The regular member lines include: American Pres- ident, David L. Ferguson Cruises Ltd., German Atlantic, Orient Overseas, Pacific Far East, P and 0, Princess Cruises, and Royal Viking. Fares, of course, include transportation, cabin accommo- dations and meals (always hearty, often gourmet and with plenty of snack times be- But that's only part of life on regular passenger ves- sels. Let's begin with ship-board- ing time, whet, the fun starts. Bars and lounges are open, though Customs regulations us- ually restrict bottles sales. So if a cabin bon-voyage party is planned, order ahead or bring your own bottle aboard. Ice, set-ups and hors d'oeuvres are readily available. After the ship sails, you can buy duty- free liquor. On many lines, while the vessels's at sea, that modest sailing day charge for "the makings" (except liquor and mix) is waived. Keep that in mind for future cabin get- togethers on the cruise. It's one way to entertain in style for very little. Parties at sea need not be In cabins. It's simple to make ar- rangements through the Chief Steward for reserving part of public rooms or even taking over a small lounge and have fancy hors d'oeuvres at a fraction of the tab ashore. There's also lots of special dress-up nights as part of the cruise program. Expert cruise staffs organize activities to keep passengers going steadily from sun-up to dawn, if the passenger wants to take in everything. Day-long chances to swim and play deck games are augmented by special tournaments. There's no sports charge except for Items like ekeet shells or a bucket of old golf balls to whack off the ship. Dance and bridge Instructors give no-fee lessons, and con- tests with prizes add to the fun. Movies, several times a day, require no admission tickets, and you can take in all you want. Or pick a deck chair, read the ship's newspaper (de- livered without charge to your cabin every morning) or a book borrowed from the extensive ship's library. Or you can luxuriate in relaxtion, talking to new friends and contemplat- ing the sea. If you're relaxing around the pool, working up a suntan, and you want a cooling drink, a waiter will quickly bring it. The same applies at tea time, if you're on deck, but there's no chit for the tea and goodies. Before dinner, the cocktail hour brings soft music, drinks and all sorts of toothsome treats. Dinner is full-course, but frequently made festive by wine or champagne (table- mate: take turns In buying, ao it never gets too Evenings bring dancing to ship's orchestra, floor show en- tertainment that varies each night, more dancing and usual- ly a late, late bar with songi for the real night owls. It's being "on the town" every night, except for the low price of drinks, (and a midnight snack is part of the Shipboard birthdays and an- niversaries are celebrated with special cakes or desserts no charge.
