Mom, Can We Go Skiing?

November 14th, 2007

“Mom, can we go skiing this year?” My fourteen year old daughter questioned. Inwardly I groaned as I thought about the shrinking balance in my checkbook. A Disneyland vacation had really taken its toll on the family budget. I eyed the oatmeal container and wondered if I could get my five kids to eat cheap oatmeal for a month. Wishful thinking, I knew. “No honey,” I sighed “I don’t think we will be able to do that this year.” A week or so later, after writing a ski article for www.childnparent.com, my answer changed to a maybe. I never really realized just how affordable skiing can be.

As I wrote the article, I had the wonderful opportunity to interview a manger of a major sporting goods store and a ski school director. Both had insights and useful tidbits of information on how to make skiing an affordable experience for every child and parent. Writing about real life on the Childn’ Parent website is a treat as I get to share valuable information with other budget conscious parents. So read my article about skiing safely on a budget and gear up everyone! Let’s hit the slopes!
