Rundown for the Week of February 5, 2000

Back to Basics on the Slopes
For a long time, the ski scene has been dominated by sprawling and pricey resorts like Vail, Colorado, Nevada's Squaw Valley or Sunday River in Maine. But for a growing number of people, these resorts are just too big. Turned-off by acres of parking lots and exorbitant ticket prices, many skiers and snow boarders are now seeking out-and finding--a stash of smaller areas where the atmosphere is laid-back and the tickets reasonably priced. The Savvy Traveler's Pippin Ross set off to find some of them.

The Skinny on Sumo
How about going belly to belly with a giant sumo wrestler? Doug Lansky, our Vagabond Traveler, shares his encounter.

Moving the Family Interview
Psychologist Rosalind Kalb packed up her brood when her husband was transferred to Japan and Hong Kong. She talks about what it's like to set up housekeeping in a faraway place.

Next Week
Next week we begin with some romantic ballroom dancing in Austria...although a waltz in Vienna ain't quite what used to be.

"I'm not sure what Strauss would think of tonight's orchestra. Electric guitarists, drummer and a keyboard player.

So we'll dance our way through modern Vienna, then head over to London for a peaceful stroll through Her Majesty's Gardens.

"Queen Mary's garden is the perfect place to keep yourself to yourself. It's still almost as quiet as it was in 1864."

Touring those young English gardens. Plus, tips to accommodate the royalty in your family -- your pet -- when you go on vacation...so come along for the ride during next week's journey with The Savvy Traveler.
