Ski season officially starts for most of us after the New Year. If you are not a skier, this is the year to try it. A relatively inexpensive family fun mountain is less than an hour away. I started skiing at 10 years old and feel that if you are going to live in a place that has winter you should be outside hitting the hills in some fashion. For the middle school kids I saw the YMCA doing programs for night skiing, which must be fun for the chaperones. I recommend some warm ups this weekend before you head for that ski vacation up to North Conway, Vermont or out West.
This is our closest mountain in Haverhill. It is not the mountain for extreme skiing, but a great family mountain. They have a great lessons program, where each kid gets almost 1 on 1 attention. Drop ins are always welcome and they have a great lodge.
Here is my little one this week at her first lesson at the age of 3. I am excited to get her out on the weekends with the ski leash.

If you are a big skier there is no better event to get you ready to hit the snow than this one. It is a big party atmosphere of all ages who come to celebrate the season and see a ski film legend’s latest film.
