WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT SKIING AS A FAMILY?
Skiing as a family is so fun because it’s a relatively new activity for all of us, so we are learning together.
While we’ve always enjoyed playing in the snow together, this is taking it up a notch!
Honor just started taking ski lessons at Solitude in Park City, UT. We travel to Park City at least once a week to ski either at Solitude or at Deer Valley. It’s not that far of a drive from our house in Salt Lake City.
SNOOZE IN STYLE
We usually just make a day trip to Park City, since it’s such a short drive. Occasionally Honor and I like to have a staycation at Deer Valley Resort because it’s amazing and then we can play in the snow for even longer!
EAT LIKE A LOCAL
Prime Steakhouse. If you’re ever in Park City, it’s a must for sure.
WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL ITEMS TO PACK?
Our Poivre Blanc winter gear has been ESSENTIAL in our skiing adventures. Mums and kids often have different agendas when it comes to activities; mine, for example, is keeping her warm and dry so she doesn’t get sick. Hers is to stay outside in the snow for as long as possible regardless of those elements. It’s really important to get quality gear when you’re in the snow for hours so you don’t have to end the fun early.
WHAT WERE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING AND SEEING?
My favourite thing to do while we are there is to watch Honor learn and navigate this new skill. I try to soak it all up and it makes it so much more fun for me.
WHAT ABOUT HONOR?
Honor’s favourite part is falling in the snow. She’s so funny. I think she does it on purpose just to get a laugh from us.
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE THING THAT HAPPENED DURING THE TRIP?
Just the joy of watching Honor learn to ski the very first time we went. It was so incredibly fulfilling to us.
There’s nothing better than watching your child being so happy and in the moment.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING WHEN YOU AREN’T SKIING?
Honor and I do a lot of different activities throughout the week. We do dance classes, music classes, and nature walks. We also make a point to eat dinner with her dad at least once a week.
ANY TIPS FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE TAKING THEIR LITTLE ONES SKIING?
Have fun with it! Get good gear and then let them enjoy themselves! If you’re nervous, they will be nervous too!
