Sometimes you just need to get away for a little while. Men need to get away from women, women need to get away from men, and both need a break from the kids.
For women who would like to learn or improve ski or snow board skills, there are several places in Vermont ready to help without the distraction of children and away from male competitiveness (or whatever else they do that gets on your nerves).
Yes, I know you love them. You will love them even more when you come back refreshed from some time away.
Here are some places you can do that (note: reservations are often required):
