Family Day at Rim Nordic!

February 8th, 2010 · No Comments

We spend one to two day every year cross country skiing.  I love it and I love how easy it is for my kids to just get on their skis and go–very little skill involved.  Rim Nordic is our one and only cross country ski resort local to us.  There are about 6 miles of trails to ski on, all groomed, with levels of difficulty ranging from very easy to hard.  This is the same location that hosts mountain bike events in the summer.

Best parts of skiing for us are the ability to get outdoors with our kids and do something together as a family.  They are now **cough cough** almost 4 and 6!  Seems like just yesterday I was snow shoeing with Benjamin in a baby bjorn!

Even for guys as young as mine, you can rent all the equipment right there on site.  We put Ryan on skiis when he was 2!

There goes daddy with Ryan.  Who’s a natural for about 45 minutes! And then, he just sits down and says he’s tired.

Moms don’t need poles!  I’ve found it’s far easier to ski without so that you’re hands are free to put  my youngest between my legs on the downhills.

In the end, the most important thing is that they have fun.  My youngest and I completed the 1 mile loop together and then he was done.  And Daddy spent over an hour skiing with Benjamin!  That is a LOT of exercise for little kids.

My husband and I each had time for a little 30 minute solo ski at the end of the day and that was great as well.

The children were thrilled to just play in the snow as well!
