Ski With Kids 2012


Summer 2012 was particularly dry in Seattle. 48 days in fact, a tie for the second-longest on record. In fact, we only had 0.01 inch of rain on September 9th, we haven’t had any since and there’s none in the 10-day forecast. It’s all very unusual and since we’re still in shorts and enjoying this Indian Summer it feels very odd to take some time today to talk about preparing for the 2012 ski season. But, as I’ve said in previous years, October is a great time to start planning your ski season, especially if you’re a budget-conscious parent who’s trying to make skiing an affordable family fun activity.

Below you’ll find links to my top three skiing posts with general information on skiing with kids, recommendations for visiting (my favorite) ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb as a family, and some cost-saving ideas.

If you’re in the Seattle area, you might want to mark the 27th Annual Newport Snowsports Swap on your calendar. The sale runs November 9th and 10th.

Canadian and Washington State residents will get the best prices on Whistler Blackcomb EDGE cards if you buy before November 19th.

Seasons passes for Stevens Pass (my favorite Washington State ski resort) are discounted until October 31st.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
