A family that skis

Here’s my “I Brake for Moms” column from today’s Everett Herald: http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20140302/BLOG5205/140309976/Northwest-spirit-is-alive-and-well-at-Meany-Lodge

For my non-Washingtonian readers, here’s a little background.

I grew up in San Diego where it only rains 9 inches a year and never snows. Skiing was a sport rich people did, and required long drives up to Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead. Then when you got there, you’d wait in lift lines forever. So for the first 30 years of my life, I only went skiing twice.

But here in the Pacific Northwest, skiing is a lot more affordable. Used gear is readily available and lift tickets are cheaper than taking your family to a Seahawks game. Plus, the mountains are only an hour away.

Being able to take your family skiing without breaking the bank is one of the reasons why Washington state is so great. Of course, I’m a little biased!  🙂
