Humans Were Never Meant to Hibernate!

As soon as I was able to walk, my parents put me on skis (okay, maybe not that young, but by 3 for sure).  During our yearly, or if we were lucky twice yearly, trips out west, we spent many days in ski school, both to learn to ski and to give my parents, relatives and their friends some freedom to ski on their own.  One of my earliest memories is skiing in my grandfather's snow plow and later taking off with my friends through the trees.  Our trips out west were some of the best times of my childhood.  We have continued this tradition with our kiddos.  I am so happy that they love to ski, and that I am able to share the experience with them!

January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month!  Check out deals and more at

What is your favorite winter sport?

  1. I loved skiing when I was younger, but am more excited about trying snowboarding this winter!

  2. I will admit, I really detest winter (was meant to live in the Southwest, I am convinced). And b/c I don't like snow, I really don't like skiing. BUT--it is a great family activity and we've had our kids at it since they were old enough to do it. Sometimes you have to take one for the team, right?

  3. I am Canadian!
    I love winter!!!

    HOCKEY is my favorite!

  4. Skiing scares me. Of course, I've only done it once, and it was on snow machine snow, which everyone assures me is so not the same. I'll stick with winter running and mountain biking. And hiking.

  5. I grew up in the south and didn't attempt skiing until I was an adult - when I spent the whole time sliding down the mountain on my back praying I wouldn't hit my head on anything!

    My kids however are part polar bear and love the snow and all things snowy.
