Family Skiing At Stratton

Stratton has been known as a great family ski area and it seems to only be getting better.    My children went through  little Cub through racing and freestyle and did some coaching.   Now my 3 year old granddaughter went to Mini Cub skismall1this past weekend.     The arrival was seamless as she was taken into the mysteries of mini cub.   We didn't have to rent - skis, boots and a helmet and  were all provided.   By the end of the first day, she was on the little black magic carpet.  Day two she went back in and had a great lesson with Vaughn Willis  and did  two runs off the big yellow caterpillar. web skiing

Gone are the days of kids have to side step up to learn to wedge - Now it it pizza, french fries and stop the bugs.   She had such a great time and can't wait to come back for more.   Both parents were just as proud.    As you go through the various programs  as Maddox  - 9 years old  here - the kids can move into a junior racing or Freestyle Program.   At the year end awards there were over  275 kids in the racing seasonal programs.   If racing is not your child's thing there is a great  snow board school.   See Macy shreading the slopes.

The ski coverage is amazing and we had an additional 5 inches of snow last night before some of the cold, wet stuff.  Stratton will close April 13 with some of the best conditions for late Spring skiing.  Spring is a great time to start learning to Ski.  My 3 year old granddaughter will be going to Mini Cub this weekend to start to learn for the first time. So amazing as its in the same location where my children learned to ski.

While all of this is happening, we are seeing an uptick in real estate activity.  Prices are still really great and there are some great late season price reductions.
