MT. ASHLAND SKI AREA & A PRIVATE SKI LESSON
It was the most perfect day to learn to ski! The weather was incredible and her instructor, Alex was fantastic. He stayed with Violet the entire time getting her from zero skiing experience to zipping down the bunny hill within an hour.
We rented all equipment needed for her day of skiing. skis, ski boots, helmet, goggles, even our gloves were checked out from the lodge. (we obviously moved from the Arizona desert)
Violet’s ski instructor taught her how to stick her boots in her skis, how to turn, slow down, stop, etc. She was having a blast! It was so fun for me to watch her learn and experience new things. I think I learned just as much as she did… it’s been a LONG time since I have skied.
Mt. Ashland Ski Area is so great. Only a 45 minute drive from Medford, age 6 and under ski for free, and you can’t beat Southern Oregon weather for skiing!
I’m sure we will be skiing a LOT this next winter, and hoping for as much snow as we got this year.
We loved taking a break from skiing and relaxing in the lodge where we grabbed some hot chocolate and food. While we were there, they had a band playing upstairs, and they even had live music and a BBQ down at the base of the ski run outside!
Mt. Ashland Ski Area really has fantastic events throughout the season and you can check them out HERE and start planning for the next year! We definitely won’t be waiting till the end of the season again.
Next time we will take the whole family! The lodge has plenty of space, food, entertainment, and views to spend time with the baby. The bunny hill is the perfect size to keep our 3 & 5 year old happy for the day. Next up is exploring the bigger trails!
