Share What’s Good…and Win $5,000

We went to my husband’s cousin’s wedding this weekend at the beautiful Holiday Valley ski resort in New York.  We had 1-1/2 hours to wait between the wedding and reception, so we decided to walk around the resort. We saw a “Ski Lift Rides” sign and had to try it out. We are not skiers, so we’ve never been on a lift before. Since my kids love roller coasters, we thought they would enjoy it. It was such a fun adventure doing something together that was a “first” for all of us.


The wedding and reception were beautiful. The location was breathtaking. But what made our trip extra fun was the little side trip up the mountain in a ski lift – just the four of us. We love the outdoors and are often found outside exploring no matter where we are. Being up high gave us a different view than we are use to! And, our shoes didn’t even fall off! Check out the beautiful Holiday Valley in the below picture.

We found Bear Crossing signs during our trip, which our kids were excited and scared about. We were searching the grounds at Holiday Valley but didn’t find any! Our little ski lift ride was quite the adventure and so much more fun than hanging out waiting for the reception to begin!

Our kids told everyone about it at the reception and are still talking about it today. Finding time to have fun with our kids where we all laugh and have a good time is what makes memories. It was well worth $5!

Of course, I’m always prepared on trips with plenty of healthy snacks and drinks. We brought along Welch’s grape juice on our trip and even on the ski lift. It is a mom’s job to always be prepared, right? When we got to the top, there was a pretty lake with a trail to walk. It’s a good thing I brought drinks!P1120731
