When grandparents get involved with their young'uns on the slopes, the experience sticks. Of the kids who ski with a grandparent, nearly 95 percent continue the sport when they grow up.
What's more, skiing is one of the few sports that's multi-generational. Kids can do it. Parents can do it. Grandparents can do it. Call it a 3G sport (three generation). And 3G holidays are a growing trend in the ski industry.
My good friend Lanie took a 3G holiday in Big Cottonwood Canyon just a few miles from her home. Frazzled from her busy work schedule, she wanted some quality family time and ski time. They rented an on-mountain cabin and enjoyed more than they expected.
"After skiing, the kids played in the snow right outside the cabin door. Kids loved it because we don't get snow like that at our home in the valley," she said.
"My parents could take a nap, and we all just wound down. But we were together. We ate out a lot. No cooking. No dishes."
