100 Days To Ski Season

Celebrating Our Snowbowl Ski Dads!

At Snowbowl, we love finding ways to celebrate families. Families are the inspiration for everything we do on the mountain, from adding new summer activities (like summer tubing and the bungee trampoline) to building new lifts and trails for the winter.

In the spirit of Father’s Day, we asked a few of our Snowbowl dads to give their favorite tips and tricks to successful skiing days with their kiddos. From extra snacks to extra layers, we hope these tips give fellow dads the tools they need to hit the slopes with their family in tow!

Raising a Skier

We followed Porter and her family (including her grandparents!) around our beginner terrain, Hart Prairie, to see what it takes to grow the next generation of little rippers. 

Chris has taken the reigns (literally) and is teaching his daughter himself. If you want your kids to be lifelong skiers (or snowboarders!), you can trust our professional ...
