I have lived my whole 35 years in Florida. While I am totally excited to be seeing REAL snow this weekend, I haven’t a clue how to prepare for it.
DH has planned a quickie ski trip for this weekend. Seriously, a quickie. We’re driving up to Cincinatti on Friday (staying with friends), going skiing at Perfect North in Indiana on Saturday and Sunday (it’s about a half hour away from our friend’s house) and driving home on Sunday. :eyebrow2: Yes, I know my husband is a little crazy, but ya gotta love his enthusiasm. And we can DO roadtrips (we’ve driven to both Canada and the Grand Canyon on other roadtrips.)
I’m assuming (or hoping rather) that we can rent ski clothes and equipment there (or near by). We have thermal underwear, coats, hats etc, and everyone has good weather boots but me, but I’ll fix that this week.
I don’t think that I’LL be doing much actual skiing, instead I’ll be quite content WATCHING from the sidelines as I do some knitting. But I want to make sure the kids are prepared (they’re 13 & 16).
Anyway, I am the type of person that plans for everything before the trip, DH is kinda a “lets-go-and-see-what-happens” person. While I’m not OCD about it, I just want to have some idea of what we’re getting into and plan for whatever I can before we go.
If you have any advice, info or otherwise helpful stuff to add, please do.
