Holidays Ahead: 1 - Winter Sports
What they cost-how to travel-where to stay-what to buy-what to pack
Franklin Engelmann brings you the latest information about holidays in the snow, with film specially shot in Switzerland.
There is no better time to plan a holiday than during those long weeks on the frosty side of Christmas when last year's heat-wave is a memory as distant as the fall of Troy. Perhaps you begin at leisure in January, leafing through the coloured pamphlets, tracing out alternative routes on the map, assessing the relative merits of car or coach, train or aeroplane. In February, if you are both fortunate and determined, you can emerge with a really practical plan, the dates fixed and the reservations made. Your summer holiday is safely in sight and you are free to start dreaming of new clothes, or shaking the sand out of your camera. Finding out what kind of holiday you want is halfway to getting it. Yet the range of holidays temptingly available is now so large that it can numb the faculty of choice. After a wild decision to tour Lapland on a tandem bicycle or cross the Sahara in a converted double-decker bus you have exhausted your imaginative energy. The whole project becomes stupefyingly difficult and you do nothing more until you find yourself committed once more to the only holiday you know about-the one you chose last year. In the seven programmes Holidays Ahead, on alternate Monday afternoons, we hope to make holiday suggestions that might prove of more use than a catalogue of places and prices. So we have selected several different kinds of holiday and with the help of Franklin Engelmann we shall be taking a close look at the kind of enjoyment each one offers and the amount of effort and expense that each demands. During the past year we took our cameras round the country to film these holidays in progress.
We chose for close examination winter sports, a sports coaching holiday, youth-hostelling, touring and sightseeing, a family seaside holiday, a London holiday, and a camping holiday on a boat. None of these holidays need be expensive and all can be had in the British Isles. Brenda Horsfield
