The wrong trail can be worse than a Dad Joke

It's time to start thinking about getting the family out on the slopes for some much needed fresh air, exercise and time away from zoom....

Ski & Snowboarding Night 2/15/11 in San Francisco

Back on January 20th, I journeyed down from Tahoe to the Presidio Sports Basement and conducted an evening ski and snowboarding program for the Golden Gate Mothers Group.

The event was fun and the feedback was very positive.  In the audience were moms and dads who'd either heard about it from the GGMG or the Southern Marin Mother's Group.

So, the Sports Basement has invited me down to do it again, this time for anyone with questions about  skiing, snowboarding, North Lake Tahoe and the mountain life.  I'm also bringing couple of friends who are snowboard instructors from the Burton Academy. We'll be on hand from 5:00 to 8:00pm, in the snow sports department of the Sports Basement in the Presidio.

Wagons make things easy, especially if it's Uncle Jay's day off!
We're changing the format somewhat to allow the night to be of value to anyone who skis or snowboards, anyone who wants to, and parents looking for advice as they expose their kids to the slopes. 

For parents, the focus will be as described in the Sports Basement Event Calendar, with special emphasis on making ski trips low stress. 

Kids' Ski and Snowboard Class
Tuesday, February 15, 2011  /  5:00pm - 8:00pm
Presidio Store
Are you planning to take your kids skiing or snowboarding this season? This ski-prep class at Sports Basement is ideal for parents of children under the age of 12 who are new to skiing and snowboarding. You will learn how to dress your child for skiing, how NOT to dress your child, the best products and technology -- gloves vs. mittens, hand and toe warmers, helmets, goggles, and more. Most importantly, you'll learn how to make the ski hill a stress-free zone for you and your child. Stop by anytime between 5pm and 8pm to chat with a certified ski and snowboard instructor. You'll be ready to hit the slopes before you know it!

So, mark your calendars, and hope to see you there!
