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.

Lessons pay off. Plain and simple, don't try to teach your kids to ski or snowboard...too stressful on them and you. We've had a little snowboarding break, but we're back to boarding and Brighton and learning...it's about the pants.

Dressing the kids properly can be challenging. What jackets, gloves, hats and helmets are best? It is expensive, let's be honest. I cut corners in some areas and not in others. Here are my suggestions on how to get kids to the slopes warm and hopefully, affordable!

Bren becomes a snowboarder at 4 at Canyons!  A special Burton board for the little guys!

I'm going to be the first to admit; I know nothing about snowboarding. But, I think I'm about to. Bren has asked to so "surfboarding" for awhile. See, for him, it's a surfboard. I'm a skier and I'll be honest, have really no desire to try boarding. I can barely navigate straight down the hill on my skis, how would I do it falling on my rear and sliding sideways? I'll leave it to my little guy. So, when a few months ago I found out about The Burton Riglet Tour at the Canyons, I had to check it out. It was a mini snowboard park set up for kids as young as 3 to try boarding. Keep in mind, that also means there needs to be a tiny board for them. Burton has introduced an 80 cm board for the little guys.
