Teaching my kids about charity and philanthropy have always been as important as math and reading. We divide allowance into thirds, giving one to a favourite organization, and run countless lemonade stands for water well development.


Skipping Lines with a Fastpass at Disney Resorts

Disney, Seen By June 19, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , 2 Comments

We’ve all waited.  And waited.  So Disney came up with a grand idea: a way of returning to a popular ride at a later time so that you needn’t wait in a long line. A cast member from The Hollywood Tower of Terror explains to us how the Fastpass at Disney Resorts system works.


Teaching Kids to Ski at Northstar Resort

ROAM, Seen, USA By April 24, 2012 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Randy Bell, celebrated ski and snowboard instructor in Lake Tahoe’s Northstar Resort in California, shares his tips on teaching small children how to hit the slopes. Northstar is one of Vail Resort’s family-friendly destinations. Between the EpicMix (you can track your vertical and ski runs via computer), EpicMix Photo (free share-able pics by professionals all over the mountain) and the funky snowmobiles that shuttle kids to lifts to aid in the ease of learning – the mountain is an incredible family destination (and we’d highly recommend Randy!).

More on why it’s Epic:

EpicPass – the unlimited, unrestricted seasons pass – just one type of pass, there are number of other season pass options – every pass includes the use of
EpicMix to capture stats, vertical feet and mountains visited.

EpicMix – revolutionary technology for the ski industry, only available at Vail Resorts. Uses Radio Frequency (RF) scanners at the base of every lift, and RF technology built into every pass to capture your stats automatically as soon as you hit the slopes. No sign-up or registration required.

EpicMix photos – EpicMix photo sharing capabilities enable guests to share their on-mountain experiences.
