For as long as I can remember my husband has spoken fondly about skiing and how much he wanted to get back to those experiences he had making memories skiing and staying at a resort. I never learned to ski as a child, but knowing my husband’s love for it, I was determined to have my kids learn to ski so we could have those family experiences together.

Now, at ages 7, 9, and 11 I felt my boys were ready to learn. They have the athleticism from sports and the maturity to pay attention to instructors and respect the equipment and trails. It was time for us to finally launch our Learn to Ski series. Melanie reported on her kids learning to ski in Cortland, New York and I am thrilled to be able to share our experiences not just vacationing but also learning to ski in Mt Washington Valley, New Hampshire.

 

Through our pictures, videos, and stories take a look at our family travel to Mt Washington Valley, New Hampshire. Even though our first family trip to New Hampshire was a winter adventure, I hope you’ll see Mt Washington Valley offers wonderful reasons to visit yearround.

We were so fortunate this trip to experience not one but two of Mt Washington Valley’s resorts. We began our visit with a 3 night stay at Purity Spring Resort. Our two bedroom room in the Inn was just steps away from all the skiing action, making it super convenient to get up and go to skiing or to do their other outdoor activities.
