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 […]

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. Generally […]

Reconnect with Nature at Stratton Camps

Stratton Camps for Kids Connecting with nature is what summer is all about when you’re a child. While my family is fortunate enough to live in Vermont and enjoy the outdoors year-round, it’s not always easy to slow down and take full advantage of everything the state has to offer. 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

Last summer the All Mountain Mamas visited Smugglers’ Notch and Stowe Mountain Resort together, not only to try new summer activities, but to connect as a team of writers, travelers and moms. Here are some of our favorite memories from the trip. Mara There are few places better suited to a girls getaway weekend than […]

Quintessential Quechee – 3 Days in the Vermont Countryside

The sun glinted off the windshield and I turned my car down a tranquil, Vermont country lane. As the road wound past a meadow, the quiet buzz of whatever critters lived among the swaths of wildflowers could be heard through our open windows. Marshland Farm, our first destination, came into view just beyond a lily-studded […]
