Family ski weekend based at the comfortable but rustic Pinestead Farm Lodge in Franconia, NH. We have several simple "suites" of rooms with shared bath and kitchen facilities. Breakfast and dinner are group events at the lodge. Lunch materials are provided. Pinestead is 10 minutes from Cannon Mountain and 5 minutes from the XC ski trails at the Franconia Inn. Bretton Woods Alpine and XC areas are about 45 minutes away. There's a sledding hill right behind the lodge (may need some "engineering") and another one at the nearby Franconia Inn where ice skating (for a fee) may also be possible. Group hikes to Bridal Veil Falls or Flume Gorge sometimes happen. The farm has chickens and cows and a small play structure. Suitable for kids all ages and skill levels. $165 ages 8+; $155 ages 3 - 7; Children under 3 free on air mattress or in a crib (non-members $175; $165) includes three nights lodging and all meals.

(best time to call: Before 9pm)

I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.


(best time to call: Before 9pm)

I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
