Ten Ways to Create A Family Ski Tradition

Before we became a skiing family, I’d been daunted by the idea of doing so. I thought it would be tough to learn to ski as an adult, I thought our kids would be cold and whine, I thought we wouldn’t be able to afford it. As it turned out, all of my concerns were […]

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 […]

To escape the daily grind, […]

Gravity on Wheels: Downhill Mountain Biking at Mount Snow Resort

My three girls are pretty avid bike riders. We’ve got a great bicycle path near our house where we ride frequently and last summer they pedaled an impressive 150-miles along a converted rail trail in Quebec. Yet despite their comfort on two wheels, they were hesitant to try downhill mountain biking. And despite my own enthusiasm […]

The Mamas Favorite Summer Moments

Here are some of our favorite memories from the trip. Mara There are few places better suited to a girls getaway weekend than […]

Are Ski Resorts Really Pet Friendly?

I have a chocolate lab named Kona. He is the heart and soul of our family. In a way I think of him as my third child. What pet owner doesn’t? My family travels quite often and I feel guilty leaving Kona at home, despite the fact that I know he is in good hands with our pet […]
