After conducting a survey of its readers and the media recently, Ski magazine ranked the top 20 ski resorts in North America, starting the list on its cover in this fashion: 1. Vail, Colorado. 2.

In the way of contributing, he asked Lam for guidance.

With Britain's Prince Charles and Princess Diana on hand, Canada on Friday officially opened Expo '86, its $1.2-billion hope for an economic and spiritual renewal for British Columbia. The royal couple joined Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney at opening ceremonies under the domed roof of Vancouver's football stadium, while outside tourists dodged rain puddles and pushed into the 50 pavilions that dot the 350-acre site on the edge of the city's downtown.
