Together they form an im- ressive ski map, but they are ttle lowwn beyond the borders of this western Canadian prov- nee sitting on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

Along with West- bank's Last Mountain, they of- er the kind 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 hree-mile run in 10 inches of wwder fluff and only two peo- ile 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!

Charter your own yacht! That's the 'ill-thing' this year sels. Let's begin with ship-board- ing time, when 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 yessels'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 Itomcule.

All boats of- fered, both motor and sailing yachts come complete with fully experienced captains and crews, and all the sailing yachts of course, have powerful en- gines too. Would you like to cruise In the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Greek Islands or anywhere in the Mediterranean, the South Pacific, or right here at home on cither coast? This firm has more than 650 reliable yachts of every size and type on its rosters in many parts of the world and will find the right boat to suit your party perfect- ly and to fit your budget too. World Yacht Enterprises, Ltd., estimates that the cost per person In a private group chartering a yacht can be under per week including all metis, or can iptnd well over per person weekly chartering a really super-de- luxe yacht bu'. there are boats at all prices in between to suit most budgets.
