let’s face it when you ski with your 4 year old any hill can bring joy to you.
Fact.

Well MiS, welcome back in advance.

. . .let’s face it when you ski with your 4 year old any hill can bring joy to you. So along with the internet I found your sight and my love for skiing got strong again and that fact that I have gotten my daughter to Jiminy Peak twice and Gore three times and I couldn’t be happier.
My financial situation due to a devorice has prevented me from coming back east, but in two more years that will change and I will get back and ski and see some family that I have.
The one good thing is I have a 400’ hill here called Caberfae Peaks and they have a $99 weekend season pass. I have learned to make the best of our small hills and enjoy skiing in Michigan
I also didn't ski for years because of money and geography.  My divorce came before kids but I completely get having fun at a small mountain with a 4yo.  There are certainly plenty of ways to enjoy skiing in the flatlands (midwest, southeast).

Discovered this winter that Jiminy Peak is a great family resort.  Bigger is not always better.

I would be interested in midwest conditions and trip reports.  My brother-in-law is about to retire and he lives in Chicago.

I will be happy to give some Mid West trip and condition reports next season. Mine will be from Michigan. My daughter  is now 24 and we have been skiing for 20 years now and I love every minute of it

My daughter is almost 18.  I had to up my game to attempt to stay a better skier but failed by the time she was 12.  I spoiled her with spring break trips to Alta.  The Alta Ski School is very good.  Then she switched to telemark while at school in Lake Placid in middle school.  I've improved in recent years and get in more days than she does because I'm retired.  But she still outskis me on the harder terrain making parallel turns with tele bindings.

Being able to ski with her for a few days during spring break at Alta was a highlight of my season.

If her third season in the Adirondacks on tele skis had been a better one, then she would've made it over the hump for tele turns.  But that was the season when the NCS ski hill didn't openfor even one day.  A few afternoons at Whiteface wasn't enough.  The season before she went to Telefest at Plattekill.  Never going back to alpine after that experience.  It annoyed her a lot when the next season after she graduated and had to go elsewhere for school then it dumped all winter.
