Family trip to the snow. Heeelp!

This year we plan on taking the kids for their first visit to the snow.  I have to admit that skiing isn’t one of my favourite things. The last time I was on a high mountain with white stuff I spent most of my time on parts of my body other than my feet, sliding down a hill fearful for my safety.  My husband, on the other hand, was a keen cross country skier and has been eager for the kids to experience the wonders of snow for some years.  So, I’ve been picking my friends’ brains and researching my little heart out in the hope of having a fun family experience later in the year.

We’re not doing the full on ski holiday.  A day trip is plenty for this blogger.  I’m hoping a little tobogganing, followed by a snowman and a snowball fight will see us through.

These are a few links that have helped my decidedly un-snow bunny outlook:

Help me readers!  What are your tips for taking the kids to the snow?

Happy travels,

    My big tip from experience – If your child toilet trained but not too old for pullups – put them on under the snow suit – you will be miles from toilets, you can’t go in the snow and a wet suit is an impossibility – just personal experience
    Steff´s last blog post ..Hedgend Maze and Yarra Valley Dairy

    Uh oh!! I can imagine that would not be a great experience. Thanks for the tip Steff.

    I wonder whether one or two piece suits are better for kids?
