Do you dream about becoming the next Lindsey Vonn or Bode Miller? No? Me neither, but I did dream about a family pastime that would get us outside all winter long.
Skiing and snowboarding are two great wintertime options that are multi-generational and can become life-long sports. When my kids were little, I pictured days spent on the slopes together and evenings capped off with steaming mugs of hot chocolate by the fireplace in the lodge. And I’ll admit, it took lessons and some patience (alright…lots of patience), but eventually, my family spent most winter weekends exploring the peaks of Vermont together. You know what they say, “a family that plays together stays together.”
We also know that skiing is an expensive sport. Luckily, Ski Vermont has several great programs to help your family go from the bunny hill to catching air in no time without breaking the bank. Take advantage of one or more of these fantastic Learn to ski and ride deals this season.
