Recommendations for "spirited"/independent (just) 4 year old...?

HelloAm looking for ski school recommendations for my "spirited"/independent (just) 4 year old. I may well give ski school a call, but am wondering if anyone (parent or instructor) has any experience that they want to share.This will be Jnr's second time skiing (and 4th trip to Steamboat). Last year (just turned 3) he did Buckaroos. Fantastic program: great childcare at KCC and one hour private a day. Jnr didn't seem completely sold on skiing (although he did it 9 days - refused 1 day). He is…See More

Steamboat with a toddler - Part 3

After an extremely windy day yesterday (we only skied for 1.5 hours in the afternoon), the mountain was in surprisingly good shape today: hard packed in areas, but still very skiable. We even enjoyed a couple of fast runs down Heavenly Daze. The sun was shining and the temperature was very pleasant (warm, but not too warm in full skiwear). The temperatures are not, however, warm enough to affect the snow (it isn’t wet or…

Steamboat with a toddler - Part 2

We have now had a number of really good days of skiing: fast, smooth packed powder and mostly warm sunshine. Seems a little unseasonable, but the groomers have done a great job keeping the trails in shape considering the lean snowfall. Really no complaints here: the skiing is fast and effortless. There are a few harder packed patches, but my skis are carving through them well.…

Steamboat with a toddler - Part 1

We have been travelling to Steamboat for many years (it is a highly addictive resort – a great all round package) and Jnr’s 2nd trip (he turned two years old a few days ago).

A ski vacation with a baby/toddler isn’t quite the same as previous vacations, but it can be done. We just need to be very organised, do our research and adjust our expectations (to…

Steamboat with a toddler - pre-trip blog

I thought that I would start my blog now, since we will be travelling this season with our “just 2 year old” (incase I don’t have too much spare time whilst we are in Steamboat!).

Husband and I have been fairly long term visitors to Steamboat. This will be our second trip with Jnr: the first (last February) he was just a year old. This year Jnr is a lot more mobile (he…

Never a bad day in Steamboat (Final Part)

Unfortunately my knee hasn’t been healing properly (stitches taken out at 12 days post-accident and the wound still hasn’t closed): I am currently on “observation” (with just steristrips and a dressing) and will be looking into my options after this week.

It was a good day skiing.  Wally World was in good shape; Buddy's and that area were a little "scapey" in the afternoon.  Slopeside (I tend to go there most afternoons after skiing) was its usual happy, crowded place.

Don't ski too hard, and be careful.  No cuts this year.   :-)

Perfect, Thursday @ 5:30. I'm here M-F 8 to 5, usually ski between 1 and 2 ish. See you soon!

At 10:40pm on January 28, 2012, Rick said…

Thanks, I got in around 4:30PM; an easy trip over all.

Thursday at 5:30 is fine by me.  Will you be bringing Alex?


At 12:25pm on January 27, 2012, Switchboard Kent said…

Boo, Tuesday or Thursday works for Julie and I, let us know.


Stop by sometime, you know where I am!

Almost here! A Tuesday or Thursday is best for us, safe travels, see you all soon!

I should have full access on a laptop during my stay.  My phone is an older one; I primarily make phone calls on.  I can receive texts, but they are hard to send (no keyboard).  I do receive the several tweets that Steamboat sends each day.  I was trying to compile a list of who all said they would be there during the same time, but got tied up on some other projects.  I know CrystalWA is there the first day or two, and some others arrive toward the end of the week.   Kent is always there, of course.  So is James, but he seldom comes over when invited.

We will have to see.  Apres ski works for me almost every day; my group tends to schedule things around supper time (6:00 ish).

At 7:48am on January 25, 2012, Rick said…

I arrive Saturday (28th) and leave on the 4th.  Quite a few other forum members overlap with us, but a common date for all may be a little hard.

If I remember correctly, you are staying at the Sheraton this year.  We, as always, are at Timber Run, but will obviously pass by the Sheraton very often.  What day would work best for you for either a forum meet or just a chance to meet Alex?

At 10:50pm on February 12, 2010, Stbtskier said…
I checked out Alex on your post and he looks like a little skier already. Glad everything went good and know you are enjoying the addition to the family. I will try to keep up with any additional news that you post but find that I don't visit the forum as much as I used to. We got some needed snow today and it has continued into the night. More is expected over the next several days but nothing big is forecast. Our forecast inch turned into 10" though so you never know. Enjoy the first year as they begin to pass quickly. Look forward to seeing the entire family when you return to Steamboat.

Hope all has gone well and the breech problem was solved. Let us know how you are doing when you get a chance.

Hey Boo Boo,

Haven't heard any news yet so hope all is well and that you have delivered or are close. I don't even know how to get on the Forums anymore without going back to an old email and using that link. All I get when I go to "forum" on the Steamboat site is "send email, wallpaper or hassle free". None of this gets me to the forum. I don't know how it has survived when they make it that complicated to get to.

Let me know how you are doing and how motherhood is treating you.
