Whether your kids are just starting to ski, have had lessons or not. . . parents always have to ask the question, "am I doing the right thing?" I had a chat with Dain Craig from Brighton to sort it all out.
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.
Each Utah resort boasts amazing views. Here are my personal top 4, each accessible to skiers and riders of all levels.
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!
In the next 2 weeks, most of the Utah Resorts will start their chairs for the opening of the season. With one of the best openings in years, we headed to Brighton which was the first resort to open. After all, Brennan has been wearing his boardy boots for most of the summer already; time to get them snowy!

Just because the ski season ended last weekend in Park City, Ogden and in Southern Utah that doesn't mean that the ski season has ended in Utah. We are still skiing powder in both Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.
Brennan started the season off with a brand new tiny Burton LTR snowboard and high hopes. He ended the season as a little champ and as his instructor said "one of the best 4 year olds I've ever seen on a snowboard."
After completing the backcountry introductory class in February, I was waiting for the opportunity to get out into the great wide-open and ride some fresh lines. With the perfect storm of March 17 – 19, Brighton Ski Resort received 35” of new snow prompting shredders to get out and ski some amazing, fluffy face shots.
Brennan's excitement about his snowboarding continues. He turns 5 with a snowboard cake, hits the slopes with his birthday hat and has a great day in Brighton powder. Emily...gives the terrain park a try. Well, sort of.
Brighton's Backcountry 101 class provides the basic essentials from instruction on decision making, using the UAC (Utah Avalanche Forecast Center) forecasts, route selection and safe travel practices, partner rescue techniques and more.
