We claimed last tracks on Crescent Ridge for the season. When we first planned the last NH AMC family trip for end of March at Crescent Ridge, that sounded like a reasonable idea. After all, it worked in 2018 and 2019. Well, the snow this year just hasn’t been up to snuff. We had three […]

I was scheduled to co-lead an AMC trip with Erik. Normally that would mean lots of organization and some coaching. But Erik did all the screening. And the folks who actually came were all regulars. So this turned into just a fun ski together. We had planned to ski the White Mountain National Forest Beaver […]

The first family AMC NH ski trip this winter went really well. We had four kids on the trip ranging from five years old to fifteen. That’s the most I have ever had sign up for a down mountain trip. I also had two solo adults signed up. At first I was worried the adults […]

We knew from our first family xc trip that the other family could take care of themselves on level terrain in the woods. However, for […]

Over the past few years, I have tried to run family friendly ski trips, but have gotten very little participation. This year Tyson and I decided to double down and run a whole series of family oriented ski trips. That way, even if we only get one family on the first trip, we can convince […]

Going skiing in the backcountry with a kid is hard enough, but backcountry skiing with a group is harder yet. Tyson and I like skiing with the AMC and want to include Isaac. The last few years, I have posted ski trips I thought appropriate for families. When he was younger, it was easy to […]

Family Ski trip to Monson

Emilie Phillips

While Tyson led his AMC Cog trip up in the Whites, I figured I might as well keep myself occupied by leading a local family oriented AMC cross country trip. Whew did I keep myself occupied! Single handed parenting, brand new co-leader in training, an area I have been to only once before, and gobs […]
