Winter Adventures – Snow & Sand
Fill your holidays with these family-fun Snow & Sand getaways.


Family fun on Snow-Packed Mountain Slopes!  

•  Grab the kids, head for the slopes and enjoy a day of skiing and snowboarding this winter.  Bundle up from head to toe; share stories on the lifts; traverse a winter wonderland; sip hot chocolate in the chalet; and best of all... watch those little red-nosed kids perhaps experience their first snow outing.

•  Choose from a variety of winter sports--downhill skiing, cross- country skiing, snowboarding,
snow blading, snowshoeing, sledding, inner-tubing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding, and ice skating.

•  Ski early or late in the season and travel mid-week for cheaper rates than major holidays or weekends.

•  Consider smaller resorts that often offer less crowds and better rates for families--affordable lodging, discounted lessons and lift tickets, even kids skiing free.  Lessons for the kids can include 1/2 day or full-day ski/snowboard instruction, lift tickets, rental equipment, food, and supervision. Cross-country skiing costs less and offers a great alternative for enjoying the snowy wilderness.
 
•  Find resorts in the U.S. open for skiing usually from Thanksgiving through Easter.

•  Check out this sampling of family ski resorts. Accommodations range from those right on the slopes, base lodges, to others a few miles from the resort.

Traveling with our Children

"I’ve been traveling with my son since he was 13 weeks old and I love it!  Actually, I discovered that traveling with my child was easy for I was already committed to including him.  I find it a challenge to plan ahead and anticipate his needs... and well rewarded with fun, family adventures." -- Publisher/Editor Deb Cornick 

    So, what do we parents who travel with our children know that others don’t?
