Wasatch Wildflowers are in Bloom!

It never gets old. The contrast of vividly diverse wildflowers set against the backdrop of rugged mountains always enchants me.

When starting skiing or boarding, it's always tough to decide on equipment. Does it fit right, what about socks and do I need a helmet? I'm doing a 4 week series featuring great tips for parents and kids. First stop...the rental shop.

Does your type of ski really matter?  What I've learned...it does!

I've always had the mindset that you get really good boots and then just get some cheap skis. Well...I've changed my mind! The last couple of years, we've got our rentals from Ski N' See. I've learned a lot! First, you do want good boots. I'd spend a bit of money on boots. If your feet hurt, forget it...your day is ruined. When you go into get rentals, you'll want to talk about boot options. If you have a narrow foot or wide foot, it will make a difference. Race type boots tend to be more narrow. Let's face it, most of us aren't racers. I tend to like a lower on the calf boot with a wider fit. Feels a little bit more comfortable for me. As for the kids. When they are little, a rear entry boot is better. I had a talk with the manager of Ski N' See about boots for kids. Kids need comfortable boots that go on quick. The rear entry boots don't have all the buckets across the top. I asked Ski N' See about that and they said until they get a little older and are really doing some big turns and more agressive turns, they don't need them. I noticed some kids in Em's class had them. Both my kids had the rear entry and they were fine. (note the picture)
