Its no secret that I am obsessed with warm weather and the beach, but since my kids have started skiing and snowboarding, I finally look forward to the cold weather. No more weekends locked indoors, and now I love this season. Each year our number of days on the slopes has gradually increased, because its so cool to watch the kids progress after a few lessons and hard work. After all skiing and snowboarding are lifelong sports, and something kids will look forward to sharing with parents as they grow older.
Last March, Jason and I took the kids to Park City, Utah. Park City. That trip brought back a ton of memories for Jason and I, as it was one of our first vacations together over thirteen years ago, well before we were married. In 2005, we were there during the Sundance Film Festival, and I remember being over whelmed by the charm of the sweet little town; so it was an easy choice for a trip with our little snow bunnies. Nothing quite compares to West Coast skiing- lots of white powdery snow and all those bluebird sunny days on the hills.
This season, Ski Utah is making it easier with their Passport program. The Ski Utah Passport Program offers 5th graders the opportunity to ski 3 times at each Utah resort (14 total resorts), and 6th graders ski one time at each Utah resort for only $35! If you have ever taken your kids skiing, you know that is a HUGE savings. Passports also include additional deals and discounts from their resorts and partners, including discounted buddy passes, deals on gear rentals and summer activities, at select Utah resorts.
Ryder will be in fifth grade just next year, so I guess we have some trips to Utah in our future! Ski Utah really makes it easy for families to embrace their love of skiing!
