Candace Derickx and I had a (snow)ball at the TMS Family Travel Conference!

I know winter doesn’t officially start for another three weeks but once December hits, it’s on, as far as I’m concerned.

I love winter because, to me, it means sweaters, hot chocolate and snuggling by the fireplace.

I realize that to many other people, it means skiing.

Now, I am totally a fan of ski resorts but the one time I actually tried skiing, I ended up going so fast, the only way I could stop was by falling. After that, I decided I was better off parking myself on a couch in the lodge, wrapped in a wool blanket with a good book, admiring the gorgeous mountain views.

When I attended the TMS Family Travel Conference in September, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to meet Alex de L’Arbre of Ski.com and do my first video interview. She is a doll, and knows everything there is to know about the sport and the best places to go, whether you’re an expert or a novice.

Take a look at the video, ignore my part and concentrate on Alex. She is a wealth of knowledge and may have convinced me to go down that bunny slope again after all these years.


  1. I know why you don’t mind winter…because you can get back to the sunshine and warmth of California! Me? I loathe it :(.

  2. Very good interview.

  3. Wow, if this is your first video you better keep going. You are a natural!
