We beat up our gear all winter long, sliding our skis over rocks, sweating in our socks, leaving remnant Snicker bars in our pockets and who knows what else. Here's how to "summerize" your gear so it's ready to rock and roll when the snow starts to fly in the fall.

With fresh snow on the ground and the holidays around the corner, it's a great time to think of a ski vacation. The great thing is, many resorts run great family deals this time of the year and if you have young kids, chances are...they ski FREE!

The snow has arrived in full force and we're looking at a pretty great start to the season and hopefully a good snow year thanks to La Nina. That is a discussion for another blog. So, we've rented the skis and we're ready to head out. Now, I'm not as mobile as my other fellow bloggers. With my equipment, Emily's, Brennan's and 2 kids in tow....it takes us awhile. The key is to pick a day when everyone is rested and happy....otherwise, you'll be very crabby by the end of the day :) I thought I'd take Emily first alone. Just to get her "ski legs". What's that? Well, for those of you who have skied before, it is the first day of the season to take it easy and sort of "remember" how to ski. After our very successful season last year with Emily, I thought, no biggie...she's ready to go straight up the lift. NOOOO! Last run of last year was down the tram at Snowbird. For those that haven't skiied much, it is a challenging run for us adults let alone the kids.
