OUR FIRST FAMILY SKI TRIP
From big cities to jungle treks, African safaris, off-roading adventures, and beach paradises around the world, there is not much I haven’t done.
After 23 years of making travel my life, I now embark on most trips with is a sense of knowing and assurance. On this Idaho skiing trip to three North Idaho ski resorts there was none of that. I was thrown back into the world of a brand-new traveler, and I loved it
Excitement and wonder were intermingled with a fear – how would we all fare down those slippery slopes? Most importantly, how would I cope in the cold temperatures in these ski destinations?
There was only one way to find out. Buy the warm snow clothes, boot up, and join a ski lesson!
The Hidden Secret of North Idaho Skiing
We couldn’t have picked a more perfect place for our first family ski vacation experience. Idaho. A state a state full of outdoor adventure and unique beauty.
We visited three North Idaho ski resorts; Schweitzer Mountain, Lookout Pass, and Silver Mountain and each mountain offers a unique and valuable experience and we recommend you visit all three when you ski in Northern Idaho.
This Idaho ski trip taught me that’s where you find the true beauty of life – not in its perfections, but in the up and down trajectory.
It’s the experiences that push you through the fear and limitation range of “I don’t think I am capable”, into a new comfort zone that says, “hang on a minute, maybe I am.”
That’s why this ski experience in Idaho was my ultimate kind of adventure. It was messy. It was scary. It was thrilling. It was fun. It was so unbelievably beautiful. And I got to do it with my kids!
This was the travel experience we dream of and have sought all my life. The stories to forever share around the campfire.
