Announcing the 2014-2015 Momtrends Ultimate Family Ski Guide


We're so thrilled to announce the 1st ever Momtrends Family Ski Guide!This is a format of a digital magazine ready for you to flip through from cover to cover.

Our mission at Momtrends is to inspire more families to try skiing and book a holiday on the slopes. Why? It's simply the best sport there is! For the past 9 years, I've been a ski mom. This project has been deeply personal for me! My husband and I fell in love on the slopes of Montana. I skied through both pregnancies (please don't tell my ObGyn) and as soon as our girls were walking we had them out on the snow. Now I'm the proud mom of two strong skiers and some of our best moments of family bonding have happened on the slopes. From silly songs sung on chairlifts to seeing mom fall and laughing (it happens A LOT!) to watching the girls lit it rip on NASTAR courses to enjoying s'mores by the fire and apres ski sleigh rides--ski holidays will be the ones you truly treasure.

This guide is the culmination of more than a dozen trips to resorts across the nation and many, many hours in the snow. We've rounded up our favorite family ski destinations and loaded it with helpful links. We'll tell you why we picked the resorts we highlighted and get you the details you need to book your trip. Without further ado...

In addition to the WHERE to go, we've also got loads of helpful hints on WHAT to pack and how to get your kids psyched about this sport. Yes, we're crazy about snowboarders too--this guide is an equal-opportunity resource!
