    Those pictures are AWESOME, especially with the warm Florida environment behind you.

    Stay warm and have fun <3

    We are also taking our first family ski trip this year – first time skiing for me too! Curious where you got your ski pants and coat?…I’ve been so focused on kids gear that I just realized I need my own (we also live in the PNW, where I hope to use them for many years to come…assuming these first lessons go well 😉

      Pants came recommended by multiple readers – outdoor research snowcrew. Helpful that they come in lengths too so they aren’t long on me. The jacket is a brand called Stio and it was a much more random choice!

    Y’all look super ready for the low temps! I hope the kids love the slopes, and fingers crossed for powder days. (We will be in MT as well, but up by Kalispell/Whitefish!)

      According to Josh’s cousin who lives in Bozeman the snow is amazing this year … so at least there’s an upside to the temperatures!!
