Freeskiing Kids at Mount Snow’s Grommet Jam

Mount Snow Resort, Vermont’s most southern ski destination, is unique in that it’s one of few ski destinations with an entire mountain face dedicated to features and terrain based skiing and riding, Carinthia Parks.

Stratton Mountain Resort Vermont Fall Fun

Foliage and Family Fun at Stratton Mountain Resort

I didn’t have my family with me when I visited Stratton Mountain Resort in autumn 2014, and was constantly saying to myself, “if only the boys were here they’d be having such a great time!” Leaf peeping may not be on most kids’ agendas, but Stratton does a great job of making sure you’ll all stay entertained while […]

Winter is Coming to Stratton Mountain Resort

Fall is a great time to spend some time in the mountains and get excited about what’s coming. I was lucky on an October visit to check out Stratton Mountain Resort’s new gondola. The lovely new cars offer floor to ceiling views, carpeted flip-down seats, and external racks for skis and snowboards. I enjoyed the smooth and quick ride […]

Summer Shines at Mount Snow’s New Family Camp

By guest blogger, Gina Vercesi “I wish it was snowing!” exclaimed my 12-year old daughter as we walked down the trail from our slopeside condo at Mount Snow Resort last week. It was July and we had just arrived for a week of adventures at Mount Snow’s brand new family camp. We were staying in […]

Learning to Snowboard at Stratton

When you grow up in Vermont it is pretty much a given that you will put your kids in a weekend ski program by the time they are in Kindergarten, if not before. Both my kids learned to ski at Bolton Valley in their Ridge Runners Program. Along the way, each of them expressed an interest […]
