Instead of counting the days until your first ski trip of the year, try counting pushups and situps. Ski experts agree you should make sure your body is in shape before your first day on the slopes; if it isn't, you risk injury and exhaustion. "It's important to be in proper physical condition before doing any skiing," says Dr. Arthur R. Bartolozzi, an orthopedic surgeon who is Pennylvania Hospital's sports medicine specialist. "Cardiovascular exercise is an essential part of a good training program, especially with higher altitude skiing.

What is the Duchess of York's response to public criticism that she's not pulling her royal weight in public appearances? She'll hit a French Alps ski resort next week for five days. But time out. Buckingham Palace said yesterday that this jaunt by Sarah and Prince Andrew "is not a holiday but an official working engagement" for the Combined Services Winter Sports Association winter championships. Fergie will not hit the slopes like a tourist, the palace said, but she might take part in a dual slalom run on the last day of competition.

The 35 fifth and sixth graders in Springfield Elementary School's Leaders' Club will not be taking a ski trip this year. The Springfield Township Board of Education Tuesday voted against the trip, which physical education teacher Linda Pastore said the club has taken the last four years. In denying the trip, the board followed the recommendation of Superintendent Christy M. Ball. Ball said the trip was unfair to the 27 fifth and sixth graders who are not members of the club and must attend classes that day. For the students left behind, the day of the ski trip would become "A lost day of classes," Ball said.

As Thursday's snowstorm rolled across Northeast Pennsylvania, it began to wreak havoc on a ski trip for 57 students from Calvary Christian Academy in Philadelphia. At the Elk Mountain Ski Resort, north of Scranton, one boy broke a collarbone and two girls also hurt themselves. It was time to get off the mountain, the seven adult chaperones decided. But as they tried to drive back on hilly Route 374 to their lodge, one of their two buses skidded off the road and into a ditch.

The ice storm should have been the tip-off. When we sat at a dead stop for three hours in a traffic jam on Interstate 84, 25 miles east of Scranton, we should have known it was a bad omen. We should have turned back to the nearest hotel, flipped on the television and watched the Eagles playoff game - the one they won! I hadn't checked the ski reports ahead of time, and neither had my buddy, Pete Hennessey. Why bother, when you know that the translation of "packed powder on a 36-inch base" can often be - in New England, at least - three feet of ice?

Wearing nothing but socks, she stood on the bar while men tossed tips at her feet and a friend videotaped the show. Like many of her classmates, the 15-year-old sophomore had been drinking. Burlington Township High School's annual ski trip to Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, has traditionally been a time when rules are bent, if not broken. This year's trip, students said, was even racier. While dozens of their classmates made easy work of getting drunk, they said, three girls did an impromptu striptease in a bar on the resort town's main drag.

A bitter lesson has turned into a sweet experience for a group of South Philadelphia Brownies who lost $700 in cookie money to robbers on Tuesday. At least 50 Philadelphians have offered donations to Troop 111 after learning that two men had snatched a purse containing the money from troop leader Rosetta Johnson and co-leader Cynthia Wallace as the women were on their way to buy a money order to use in forwarding the proceeds. The kindness of strangers will enable the 31-member troop to relish "the ski trip of their lives" in Pine Hill, N.J., Bonnie Gibson, director of finance and administration for the Girl Scouts of Greater Philadelphia, said yesterday.

Now that the dust has settled after a rowdy student walkout two weeks ago, efforts are being made at the high school to shore up lines of communication. Meetings have begun between faculty and students, and the wood-shop class is making suggestion boxes to aid in the flow of open dialogue. School officials say the March 15 walkout was the result of misunderstandings among students about various policies and actions taken at the school. About 150 students walked out after lunch period that Friday in a protest over, among other things, a proposed ban on bookbags, Saturday detention policies, and the recent cancellations of a basketball tournament, a dance, and ski trip, a blood drive, and other events.

The weekday ski trip was supposed to be a special treat, an extension of 12-year-old Brett Battuello's leap-year birthday celebration. The Battuello family was no stranger to the slopes - the three children liked skiing so much they received skis for Christmas - so Marilyn Battuello never expected her son's Pocono mountain outing to end in tragedy. Yet sometime near 4 p.m. Wednesday, Brett missed an elbow turn near the bottom of the "Marc Antony" ski trail, a mile-long stretch at the Camelback Ski Area designated for intermediate skiers.

The two men followed starkly different paths to the witness stand. The 49-year-old was raised in the outer suburbs, graduated from medical school, got married, and had five children. The 23-year-old from Northeast Philadelphia was kicked out of two high schools, attempted suicide, and spent much of the last decade hooked on heroin and prescription drugs. But in tense and emotional testimony to a Common Pleas Court jury Wednesday, both former altar boys described a bond: Each said he was sexually abused by his parish priest, Edward Avery.

SION, Switzerland - A tourist bus slammed head-on into a concrete wall in a Swiss Alps tunnel, killing 28 people, mostly children returning from a ski vacation. Swiss police said Wednesday the vehicle was not speeding and everyone was wearing seat belts. The bus was carrying students about age 12 from two Belgian schools when it crashed shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday night on a highway near the southern town of Sierre, Switzerland. The horrific accident in the short Tunnel de Geronde left the front of the bus mangled, trapping people inside.

Considering the pounding the dollar is taking throughout Europe, an all-inclusive trip to ski the French Alps in Chamonix for $1,680 is a real deal. You can get bargains like that by joining one of the more than 50 ski and snowboard clubs in the Delaware Valley. The King of Prussia Ski Club, for example, is sponsoring the Chamonix trip Feb. 15 to 23. It includes airfare, a welcome party, seven nights' room and board, and lift tickets at three of France's most prestigious ski resorts.

The dream of skiing St. Moritz, known for its palace hotels and haute couture shops catering to the world's wealthiest, always seemed impossibly expensive. That changed one summer, during a hiking and biking vacation, when my husband, Larry, and I pedaled through this tidy little village about a mile downhill from its glitzy neighbor. What would it be like, we wondered, to take a ski vacation based in this charming and unpretentious town sitting at the bottom of the famous bobsled run that starts in St. Moritz?

The Boy Scouts of America promise to "offer young people responsible fun and adventure. " So pitching tents and hiking along trails at local campgrounds is expected. But a 4,200-mile trip to Alaska? All 15 members of Boy Scout Troop 133 in the Overbrook section of the city - one of the oldest African American troops in the United States, according to local leaders - will leave today for Alaska. The scouts, ages 11 to 18, will spend seven days at Camp Lost Lake, which is operated by the Midnight Sun Council.

The winter blues are real. For each of my 25 years, I have lived with a cold winter - in my native New York, my college town of Boston, and now my home of Philadelphia - and I could do without it. Winter makes me sick. I get sick of being cold. Sick of catching colds. Sick of numb fingers and boots soaked by slush. Only a complex regimen of Carmex, Vaseline, and cocoa butter cream can keep my lips and skin in decent shape. In short, I long for warm weather and absolutely ache for sunshine.

When I was a kid, a family vacation meant a day trip to Atlantic City or maybe a few days in Ocean City, N.J. So how did we end up with our 5- and 8-year-old on Mexico's Riviera Maya, south of Cancun? Truth be told, we had been away for a ski trip without them in February and did not have the nerve or inclination to leave them again. Yet when we read the Sunday newspaper travel section and saw the great deals to be had, we couldn't resist. Children stay and eat free. Airline miles took care of airfare.
