I grew up skiing around New England more than 30 years ago. My wife is from South America, and actually loves skiing. So she is in. We moved to Phoenix AZ about 7 years ago, and have only gone skiing a few times over the years. Last year we were back east for a week during all the snow storms. We took the kids (my son is 10 my daughter is 6) skiing, got them lessons and had a great day. They love to ski too. I've been waiting to get back into skiing for about 8 years now, and this season we are all set.
We have a week planned in Utah the first week of March, and are looking to get a season pass to one of the mountains here in AZ. My wife and I are shopping for skis on ebay currently, and can't wait. I remember when I was in high school seeing dads with their little kids skiing, and the little kids were fearless and tearing it up. I can't wait to start some of those great memories for my family.
Just thought I would share, as we are already getting excited.
