The winter season has its own distinct appeal, found in the blanket of snow, the snow-covered trails, the scenic gondola rides, the snowmobile trips, and even in the mittens, winter boots and layered clothes. During this time of the year when temperatures drop, many people tend stay indoors and just “ride the winter out”, but there are those who invoke the winter attraction as an excuse to have fun outdoors. Many of those call Steamboat Springs home.
Plan ahead for your convenience.
If you’re one of those people who prefer to create or participate in winter activities outside the city, better plan your trip in advance, especially if you intend to take the kids with you, according to an article in The Herald News. Schedule the trip on dates that wouldn’t interfere with your work commitments or with your children’s school events. Involve your kids in the planning stages as “it’s their responsibility too,” according to Gene Roehlkepartain, vice president for research and development at Minneapolis’ Search Institute, the group behind the online parenting advice site, ParentFurther.com.
Roehlkepartain advises parents to “look for ways to take this time (the break) together to create memories.” Since any time spent with the family is special, consider bringing them to Steamboat Springs in Colorado, a renowned winter ski resort destination, known as Ski Town USA. Let your family, especially the kids, engage in different winter activities with other kids and adults.
