When the snow starts falling, our thoughts go downhill – skiing, that is! Skiing and other snow sports are increasing in popularity in the U.S., and there may never be a better time to strap on your skis and join in on the fun. Join us at the next #TMOM Twitter Party to share your ski experiences, or to learn how to make 2016 the year your family heads to the hills.
December 14 #TMOM Twitter Party – Let’s Hit the Slopes!
Right now, I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, but my family is thinking beyond our holiday. They’re dreaming of white powder, and time on the slopes. The first snow of winter can’t come soon enough for my husband, who loves skiing so much he planned a ski trip in New Hampshire for our honeymoon.
If the “shush shush” of a downhill glide is part of your dreams, too, you’re in good company. The National Ski Areas Association reports that 53.6 million visits were made to ski areas for snowsports during the 2014-15 season. Their report notes that’s more than three times the number of people who attended NFL games in 2014.
But planning a ski trip isn’t as easy as grabbing your boots and bindings and heading for the hills. You need to research lift ticket prices, check the reputation of lessons for your newbie skiers, and consider the other activities offered at the resort. And of course, you need to keep your eye on the weather. (Our late January honeymoon turned out to be unseasonably warm, so we spent more time indoors than on the slopes. Okay for a honeymoon, but not ideal for those who are really hoping to be schussing through the vacation.)
Ski travel – that’s what we’re talking about during the nest #TMOM Twitter party on December 14 at 7 p.m. Whether you’re an expert skier who comes alive on extreme slopes or a newcomer to the sport, we can help you find the right place, choose the right equipment and identify the right conditions to make your ski vacation a dream come true.
As you can imagine, this group of active moms has plenty of advice for those of you planning a ski vacation. Whether it’s finding the perfect ski location, choosing the best method of learning to schuss, or just falling in love with the magic of snow sports (and short lines!), we’ve got the ski season covered – and we’d love to share our experiences with you.
Please join in on the fun on December 14 at our #TMOM Twitter Party, all about ski vacations and other snow sports. Don’t miss out on the fun this winter – hit the party, then hit the slopes.
WHEN: December 14, 9-10 p.m. ET (8-9 p.m. CT; 7-8 p.m. MT; 6-7 p.m. PT)
