Sugarbush Resort Junior Golf Camp

Get Your Kids on Course with Sugarbush Junior Golf Camp

Christmas may come at the beginning of ski season but last year my husband Matt had one thing on his mind: golf. He wanted our sons to learn play a game he himself enjoys in much the same way I love to ski. With great glee, he bought starter clubs for 15-year-old Tommy and 12-year-old Teddy, placed them […]

Music in the Meadow at Trapp Family Lodge

Summer nights in Vermont were made for Music in the Meadow at Trapp Family Lodge. These concerts are a focal point of the Stowe, Vermont music scene. Pack a picnic, bring some wine, and listen to some great music while watching the sunset. It is the winning combination for a magical evening. The Setting and Seating […]

5 Amazing Things Your Teens Can Do at Smugglers’ Notch

Seasoned parents know that traveling with older kids can be easier than with toddlers. However, anyone who has ever traveled with teens knows it has its own set of challenges. Teenagers are usually glued to their electronics and always seem to be bored despite having plenty of things to do. The key to a successful […]

Haystack Mountain Hermitage Club

A Luxury Ski and Spa Getaway at the Hermitage Club

As I inhaled deeply and stretched my arms overhead in the dim room I marveled that I could feel both alert and revived and relaxed at the same time. I’ll admit that I almost never take the time to warm up my muscles before I ski, often to the detriment of my legs, back and […]

Ski Lesson Mad River Glen

A Tale of Two Ski Lessons at Mad River Glen

My first memory of downhill skiing at Mad River Glen involves a lot of snow. I ended up with clumps of it sticking to my Kelly green pom-pom hat (because in 1981 pretty much only racers wore helmets to ski), up inside my mittens and the bottom of my ski pants, scattered across my jacket and sadly, […]

Get The Led Out

Parents’ Night Out at Jay Peak Resort

In the last decade, ski resorts have evolved to become so much more than destinations for skiing and riding. They now offer many alternate activities to keep families entertained both on and off the mountain. You will find tubing hills, ice skating rinks, rock climbing walls, spas, and more. No longer do ski weekends have to […]

Planning a Family Ski Vacation Made Simple

All Mountain Mamas Family Ski Trip Tips Let’s face it, the initial thought of planning your family’s first ever (or even second or third) ski trip can be slightly overwhelming. For those unfamiliar to with the sport or snowy destinations in general, the thought of snowy winter adventures on strange equipment is downright alien. Fortunately, […]

Stowe Mountain Resort Treetop Adventure

Choose Your Own Family Adventure at Stowe Mountain Resort

What’s the best family adventure you can have on a mountain without putting on a pair of skis? Since there isn’t snow year-round in Vermont (how I wish!) I’m always looking for the best answer to this question. I’m happy to report that when my family visited Stowe Mountain Resort one bright August morning we discovered […]

Stay n’ Play at the Quechee Club

Quechee is just as picturesque as you might imagine any small Vermont town to be. There are covered bridges, several quaint inns, a few locally owned stores and restaurants, and no big box stores. Making up a significant portion of the area is the Quechee Lakes Landowner’s Association (QLLA). Individuals who own a home within this […]

Sugarbush Family Golf Lesson

Get the Family Golfing at Sugarbush Resort

“Golf is boring. It’s something only grownups like.” Spoken with the true wisdom that only a 14-year-old boy possesses. And with the true wisdom that only the mom of a 14-year-old boy possesses, I suggested to my husband Matt that perhaps he was, shall we say, less than likely to persuade our son Tommy otherwise.
