Skiing with the Kids

After climbing Vermont’s General Stark Mountain (home of Mad River Glen ski area), we opted for a quick family photo before setting off on a very fun descent down Mad River Glen’s northeast facing trail network. Despite the dearth of snow here in Vermont this season, there is still top to bottom skiing at Mad River Glen right now. Our girls (Maiana, 3 yrs, and Lenora, 8 mos) ride on our backs when we climb mountains and ski, often sleeping for 1-2 hours during our climb, and then waking in time to enjoy the thrill of gravity with us on the way down.

Old Man Winter has been slow to coerce the Snow Gods into action this season, but he’s finally having some success this week. Here’s a snap of our good friend Forrest Twombly enjoying one of our favorite runs on the planet this week, at Vermont’s Mad River Glen.

Celebrating Winter

Winter arrived early to our Vermont landscape, and thanks to Old Man Winter’s generosity, we’ve been out skiing almost daily in our local hills, fields and mountains since early November. This image features a particularly memorable – and snowy – late afternoon around Thanksgiving, just above our local village in Vermont’s Green Mountains. We climbed and skied for several runs, and lingered right til dark. In this photo, Emily is skiing, while little Maiana (now 22 months) enjoys the ride on her back.

Photo of the Month – April: Pedal-Powered Skiing in the Swiss Alps

In pursuit of some good old fashioned adventure, and in partnership with several outdoor brands and media outlets, as well as Switzerland Tourism, we set off in early April on a month long, bicycle-powered skiing adventure through the heart of the Alps of Switzerland (as well as Austria and Italy). The image above was captured while taking advantage of Switzerland’s world-class rail system at the start of our trip. (The skis and poles ride strapped the the sides of our trusty, one-wheeled BOB trailers, while the rest of our gear travels inside the trailer bag and within bags/panniers attached to the bikes.)

Throughout the months of April and May, you can follow our adventure on our skiing website, www.AdventureSkier.com or at this link HERE. Thanks and enjoy! – Brian and Emily

Camera Info: Canon 7D, 10mm, ISO 320, 1/60, f3.5
