Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – The Travel Column Finale – With D.G. Kaye – Winter Snow Vacations for all the family. | Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

My last Travel Column for the year was recently featured at Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord Blog Magazine, and I’m sharing it here with you today. This is the second part of this issue. The first part offered some warm winter getaway destinations, and this edition features a few cold getaway recommends for those who prefer winter activities. Next year I will be writing a new column for the Smorgasbord blog – Realms of Relationships, so stay tuned!


Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – The Travel Column Finale – With D.G. Kaye – Winter Snow Vacations for all the family.


For the last two years D.G. Kaye, Debby Gies has taken us on vacation all around the world from Arizona to Malta, on cruise ships and by air. This will be the last Travel Column, but have no fear… Debby will be returning in 2020 with a brand new column that showcases one of her other areas of expertise, relationships in all their glory. I am excited and I am sure that you will find the series both interesting and helpful as we navigate our way through these sometimes tricky elements of our lives.


D.G. Kaye on Relationships


Look out for Debby’s introduction post in the New Year….

For this final Travel Column Debby is going to share three winter resorts that are popular during the ski season but also have activities for all the family, including someone like me who does not trust two short planks down a mountainside at 60 miles an hour… I prefer waiting at the other end of the slopes at the Gluhwein (hot red wine) stall…..

Take it away Debby….


Thanks everyone for setting out on this last trip of the Travel Column series and I am very excited to be back next year with my new column, and looking forward to plenty of discussion on the subject of relationships.

There are a great many wonderful ski resorts in North America and in Europe as well as slightly further away in New Zealand. I have selected three that are wonderful places for the whole family including non-skiers.  If you are thinking about a ski vacation then you might find this site very useful as it covers resorts around the world: Ski Resort Information


I am of course going to begin in my home country.


Canada, British Columbia – Whistler Blackcomb gets five out of five stars by multiple users on the site.


The Whistler Blackcomb ski resort is very family and child friendly. There is a separate Family Zone on Whistler Mountain and multiple Whistler Kids children’s areas distributed throughout the ski resort. The Children’s Adventure Park, the Big Easy Terrain Garden and the Tree Forts are very popular up on the mountain. Families are very well cared for at Whistler. For the bigger kids, there are many events as well as the Ziptrek (a zipline flight over Whistler). Special packages offered for the whole family round off the offering. – Please continue reading at Sally’s blog

  1. Whistler is awesome – great to see it on the list, Debby! It’s out my way 😉 And I’ll be sure to check out your new column over at Sally’s in the New Year!! Exciting new projects ahead ❤


  2. Once upon a time, many years ago, we did some wintry adventures for fun–rather than by necessity. Now, those are for viewing on one channel or another. Interesting though. Does bring back memories of those cross country skis we sold just a few years ago to a New Mexico local.


  3. You are very versatile my friend, when it comes to covering travel destinations and to columns! And with other things as well, I’m sure. 🙂 Looking forward to reading your new relationship column on Sally’s blog.

    On another note (and I know you will hate this part), I am having trouble getting to your website from my iPad. It doesn’t work anymore via the links in your weekly newsletter and I can’t even open your website address in the Safari browser. I type in your address and it seems to go and then, without anything happening, the address bar turns blank. Maybe it’s because of a poor internet connection (as your blog appears heavy and takes a while to load) at the moment. I hope it’s just me and I hope it’s temporary, but one reason for my delays in commenting is because I now do this from my computer, for which I need more space and more power). I’ll keep you updated about it working again, as I’ll keep trying from my tablet as well.


    1. Hi Liesbet. Thanks for the kudos and the heads up. I have to wonder if the problem is with your internet connection or Ipad because I’ve checked and my ‘mobile friendly’ theme is all in order. Please let me know if you find it suddenly working for you. 🙂
