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 […]

Mountain Top for a Family Retreat

Fireplace? Check. Gorgeous views of the Green Mountains? Check. Comfy beds? Check. Access to snow sports? Check. Hot tub? Check. Other than the obvious essentials like food, beer and wine, this is what I need to have a great vacation. Add in my husband, son and the grandparents, and it’s the recipe for a perfect […]

Smugglers Notch Resort Cat Trax Express Evening Tour

Think Skiing Is the Only Way to See Smuggs? Think Again

Smuggler’s Notch Resort is home to three mountains and 78 ski trails, so it would be easy to think that the best way to get around is on lifts and skis or a snowboard (with maybe the occasional pair of snowshoes thrown in).

The Rewards of a Late Winter Ski Weekend at Bromley

The roads were snow-covered and slick as we traveled along Route 11 to Bromley. It was dumping outside during a March Nor’easter, and the snow had no signs of letting up. When we scheduled our winter ski weekend trip to Bromley Mountain a couple of months ago, I had wondered if skiing in March would […]

It’s All About Adventure at Stowe Ski School

The first time I skied at Stowe Mountain Resort was back in 1993 when I was hired as a photographer to take portraits of skiers posed near Mount Mansfield’s legendary Front Four trails. Those were the days of one-piece ski suits, pre-parabolic skis, and film cameras. My photography job involved long hours but had some […]

A Family Winter Getaway to Mount Snow

As a lifelong skier and nearly lifelong Vermonter, it’s natural to assume that I’ve traversed every ski area in Vermont. I grew up skiing at places like Stratton, Bromley, and Magic, and later spent many days at Stowe, Sugarbush, Smugglers’ Notch, Bolton, and Burke. Until recently, I had never skied at Mount Snow. I’m not […]
