Preparing for a ski trip

Preparing for a ski trip

Q. Our family has never gone skiing at a mountain before. Our kids are 11, 9 and 6. How do we prepare?

A. A family ski vacation creates great memories that you and your kids are sure to cherish for years to come! For beginning skiers, bigger does not always mean better. Check out smaller resorts which often have no crowds, more affordable pricing and a family-friendly feel. Research and book your rental equipment in advance for the best pricing, and sign up for group lessons – some resorts even offer family lessons so you can all learn together! Lastly, make sure you stay warm and dry! That means waterproof top and bottom, insulating base layers, hat (or helmet!) and gloves. Sunglasses or goggles are highly recommended.
