To start my spring break off right, I headed to Peak n’ Peak Resort. I spent the night at the Inn at the Peak. There was a lot to offer at the inn from the s’mores at fire pits, to swimming in the pool and checking out the indoor/outdoor hot tub; my night was jam packed with activities. The resort was filled with families having a great time and excited to hit the slopes the next day.
In the morning I made my way to the mountain. They have had about 180 inches of snow so far this season, so I was eager to get out on the slopes. Each run I took was great, there is nothing like skiing on packed powder. The mountain was big enough where I skied a new trail almost every run I took but small enough that I knew my way around and did not get lost. No waiting in the lift lines was also a plus.
Peak n’ Peak is definitely a family resort and mountain. The lodge was filled with parents and their kids. They have a big beginner area which is located right outside the main lodge. The beginners learn how to ski or ride with terrain based learning. Then they head out to the big slopes with their instructor and conquer the mountain. There were plenty of ski and snowboard lessons going on, which is always so great to watch. I love watching people fall in love with the sport!
Ski and Snowboard groups were tearing up the mountain all day at Peak n’ Peak. All the kids in groups and their instructors seemed to be having tons of fun with big smiles on their faces and laughs you could hear from the chairlift. This is how I grew up on the mountain. Spending every weekend with my ski group from 8:30am-3:00pm making memories and friendships that have lasted forever. I am sure these kids are creating lifelong memories as well.
In the afternoon I decided to head over to the other side of the mountain, to the Terrain Parks. They were awesome. There are 4 terrain parks: a progressive terrain park, a beginner terrain park, a medium level park, and a boarder cross park! They were lots of fun and so many skiers and riders, old and young were showing of their skills. I personally had a lot of fun in the half pipe. The terrain parks are all under one chairlift and on one side of the mountain, which you could totally avoid if you are not a park fan.
I experienced Pond Skimming Contest at Peak n’ Peak for the first time. I have never seen a Pond Skimming Contest, so I was really excited to see it all go down! Excitement was in the air, with over 50 participants and the huge crowd of people surrounding the pond and cheering. Peak n’ Peak sure knows how to have some fun! From beginner pond skimmers to the experts everyone had a great time and there were a lot of laughs.
Peak n’ Peak is a great family resort, for a ski vacation or just some daily skiing and riding. Go check it out before the season ends and get a ticket for a spring price!
Ski ya on the slopes!
