Who Am I?

Obviously, I am a mom and a skier.  I am not so brave, but I try every day to meet life’s challenges with a smile on my face. Curious about why I am the BRAVE ski mom? The answer is here.

I am a Colorado native, from the Western Slope, far from Denver.  I ski over 50 days each year, which means pretty much every weekend day with some midweek days scattered in here and there.

I enjoy road biking and have just discovered that I actually can mountain bike, which is a good thing considering where I live.

Me. The Brave Ski Mom.

Although I love my family more than anything, I also love my devoted dog, Chawie.  I am trying to master Spanish.  I play classical guitar. I love good cheese and citrus fruit.

I also love to write. If you are interested in me writing for you, contact me.

If I didn’t live in Colorado, I would live in Utah.  And if Utah weren’t an option, you could find me in France.

    Just found your site. I’m a non-skiing mom who learned to ski at 40 so I could be out with my kids…who after 1 season, out ski me!

    I am also the mom of a girl & boy lacrosse player. My 65 year old parents LOVE lacrosse, although I wondered that too when my son started. Now they say it is hard to switch back and forth and not yell “hit ‘em” at the girls games!

      I love your comment! The boys and girls games are so different. I am in awe of the athletes in both sports — amazing skill and coordination!

      I hope you’ll keep skiing. Kids do have a tendency to “out do” us moms (and dads). But I always just tell myself that’s the goal — I want them to be better than me in every way!

      Take care and thanks again for commenting!

  8. What a great blog. Thanks for sharing!

    Congratulations, nice blog! I wish there where more mom’s like you out there, very inspiring, well done! Do you guys ever come skiing in Europe?

    • braveskimom says:

      Thanks Fabo! You made my day! We have spent a lot of time in Europe — in the summers: hiking in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Chamonix, Courcheval. Winters we’ve been bound to North America. I want to change this! When we get to Europe for skiing, I’ll let you know! I’ll check out your ski school. Cheers!
