As my kids get older, I am deepening my appreciation of TOS (Time On Snow). My babies are turning into teenagers and the distractions are mounting. School, sports, social media, if you don’t pay attention they all erode family life. The answer is time outdoors. That's why I labor over our ski guide every year - I want to give you the gift of getting your family back (or bringing you closer).
From epic road trips to Vermont, to 4-hour flights out West, we go the distance to set our family up for closeness. Getting out of your comfort zone, both geographically and physically is the perfect way to create memories. I know first hand that skiing requires three things: patience, planning and MONEY. I'm here to make it easier for you to make those snowy memories.
I’ve got a handful of years left with the girls at home. I plan on taking as many ski days as possible. Smartphones can wait, the snow is calling.
