Evidence of how Asia's sickly yen, won and other currencies have infected Canada abounds in this postcard-perfect setting in the northern Rockies. The tour buses that once delivered visitors by the hundreds from Tokyo and Seoul, fueling a boom that transformed this village into a resort with visions of rivaling Aspen, are fewer and fewer.

Skiers can sleep for less than $20 near many of North America's most popular winter resorts. In Canada and the United States, more than 60 hostels are situated near major downhill and cross-country ski areas. Rates for a bed in a dormitory-style room average $7 to $20 per bed, per night. Some hostels also have packages that include lift tickets. You can find out about these types of facilities through tourist information offices, guidebooks and the hostels themselves.

Maxi-mergers and mini-results are what's happening in American skiing as the new year starts its precipitous run into the unknown. For recreational skiers, perhaps the biggest news in 1996 came in the shape of parabolic skis, which gained increasing acceptance for their easy-going nature. But almost equally important was the widespread consolidation among ski resorts, a trend that could produce future economic benefits in both the board rooms and on the slopes.

Startling some Ventura City Council members, City Manager John Baker says he has accrued enough unused vacation and sick leave to collect nearly $50,000 when he leaves his job July 1. After 13 years in the position, Baker has accumulated 825 hours of vacation and 540 hours of sick leave that he has not used and is entitled for reimbursement, he wrote in a memo given to the City Council. The city's policy is to reimburse all employees' vacation time in full and 25% of all sick time.

The Redlands-adjacent community of Mentone has neither a mayor nor a city council, but it's the fortunate home of Casa Maya, one of the few Yucatecan restaurants in Southern California. With its mostly organic ingredients, house-made corn tortillas, marinades and sauces, and deft updates of family recipes, this modest cafe turns out the kind of distinctive fare that used to be called "worth a trip" and today earns it a place in anyone's GPS points-of- interest file.
