Instead of bargain hunting at the big box stores on Black Friday, we hope you reflect on your most rewarding purchases, which probably didn’t come in a shiny package. In our minds, a well-planned family ski vacation is the most gratifying expenditure.
A family ski trip is not the easiest nor the most affordable type of vacation. Frankly, it takes some guts for parents to make it happen. But when they do, the resulting experience brings families together in immeasurable ways. We think the New York Times addressed it well in a 2011 article:
“Because, like generations of skiers before us, we will eventually push off, leaving behind not just all that schlepping, but the weight of Newton’s laws as well. Gravity becomes our friend. The sullen teenager lights up, the 8-year-old stops whining, and your spouse is no longer a parent, but a fellow skier. We will each take our own route, but we will go down the hill together.”
