Gray Rocks Alternative

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Growing up in the 80's we used to go with our family and friends from our ski club up to Gray Rocks in Quebec.  It was the perfect family skiing experience- you were class with the same kids all week, even the adults were in a regular ski class where they met other people.  There were activities for the kids (even without the adults) all the time- sleigh rides, talent show, movie nights, game room, bingo etc.  And at the end of the week you had a banquet with your class.  We also had an assigned table in the dining room with the same waiter for each meal- and we requested him each time we went, so he was like part of our family.  Anyway, really a great place and I'm so sad it closed.

 

So...

 

Nothing will be exactly like this, but what would be a good alternative?  I have a two and a four year old and our extended family is thinking about a big ski vacation next year.  My family is in VA, NY and MA.  My mom sent me a link to Seven Springs in PA which seems to be as close to a Gray Rocks experience that you'll find.  Any other places like this?  

 

Thanks!

That is if you belong to Telemark Ski Club which your screen name indicates.

Thanks for the info, it sure would be fun to get out there, but I should have mentioned that we want to stay in the east coast area.

Just bring the family up to the club. I'll meet you there, I usually do.

 

I've been skiing with your family longer than you...LOL

 

I'll keep you guessing as to my identity just for the fun of it.

 

You made it to easy for me to guess who you are.

That's okay, I'm pretty sure I know!  We suggested just going up to the club but people (not me!) want to go somewhere more south.  Longer drive and more expensive for us, but we may be outnumbered.  We'll get up there soon on our own, though, now that the kids are older.  I'm bringing in my skis for a tune-up tomorrow!
