SunandSki.comWhen I was a kid we lived in Utah and skied just about every weekend, but since moving East, I just haven’t made the time to ski. Quite a few of my friends take multiple ski trips every winter and they always have a great time so, I think we may just have to try something new this winter. Since it has been so long since I have packed for a ski trip, I wouldn’t have the first clue what to pack other than loads of socks and gloves!

Enter, a cool find! The team at Sun & Ski sports have created an interactive snow ski trip packing list that not only tells you what to pack for a quick ski trip – say 2-4 days, but also what to pack for a longer trip, the benefits of each item you need, and some general tips such as:

  • Workout your legs (Quadriceps, Calfs & Tibialis Anterior) and core (Abs & balancing exercises) to prepare for your time on the hill. Low weight, high reps will build that “all day” endurance that you are looking for.
  • Pack ski clothes in your carry-on. This way if your luggage gets lost, you can still enjoy the mountain.
  • Eat a good breakfast. Supplement with Vitamin C and all kinds of Vitamin B for energy.
  • Remember to always drink alot of water when at high altitudes.
  • Check your snowboard bindings to make sure that they remain tight throughout the day.

Head over to Sun & Ski for the rest of the tips for ski and snowboarding trips as well as how to layer to stay warm and dry on the slopes.

Golfing Half Moon Bay, CA

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Last week I had the absolute privilege of golfing the Ocean Course at the very spectacular Half Moon Bay Golf Course at the Ritz-Carlton as part of the ShareASale ThinkTank annual event. This is the second time I have played golf on the Pacific, and while this time was definitely a bit cooler, the views and course were no less spectacular. The Ocean Course at Half Moon Bay is a links style course that winds its way against the hill, down a valley and back up to the Pacific Ocean for the back nine. The views are amazing!

Since we were traveling I knew we would be renting clubs but I would need my own shoes. I was so happy to have my pink Cleatskins for golf because that meant I did not have to pack a spare set of tennis shoes for walking from our hotel room to the golf course and I didn’t have to ruin my cleats in the process. When we got to the clubhouse our cart and rental clubs were ready to go. My rentals were TaylorMade – how cool was that!! I had a TaylorMade Ladies Burner Driver, Fairway Wood and irons and my putter and wedges were TaylorMade Rossa. Sweet.

Just like when you drive a new car, you have to get used to a few differences in performance and using the TaylorMade clubs definitely took me a few holes to adapt. Well, add to that the greens at Half Moon Bay were ridiculously FAST! Whoa! Your ball would hit the green and speed up – or at least it seemed. After about 5 holes, we figured out how to adjust for the green speed, winds, and distractions brought on by the general silliness that can come with playing a relaxed game with some comedic partners!

I had a few really great drives – and a few really bad ones! My putting seems to be getting better, too, but that middle game still makes me a bit crazy! I am getting better with my fairway woods and my lucky number seven is truly my go-to club for my second or third shot. There were a few challenging holes that had water hazards between the tee box and the green and much to my surprise I got my trusty pink ball on the green in one stroke on the two trickiest holes.

We teed off at 1:30 in the afternoon so by the time we got to #16 the sun was going down, the wind was kicking up and it was getting cold. I didn’t really care, though, I was playing golf on a beautiful course with my favorite golf partner (my husband) and was loving every minute of it. Who needs to feel your hands when you golf anyway? The sunset was beautiful and I can now add Half Moon Bay’s Ocean Course to my list of courses I have played. Thanks again to all my friends at ShareASale for making this year’s event one I will not soon forget!

The Littlest Golfer Golf Clothes for Girls

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The Littlest GolferWhen my daughter went to golf camp this summer we had the hardest time finding golf skorts with pockets and girly golf accessories at the last minute. I wish I would have known about The Littlest Golfer’s line of girls golf clothes then (but at least I know about it now)!  The golf clothes line is kid focused and has the most adorable turtle mascots – Putter and Sandy.

Here are just a few of the adorable girls golf items that The Littlest Golfer sells (so far I have found it online at In The Hole Golf, but you can also find The Littlest Golfer gear in select ProShops):

And my daughter just saw the Sandy Plush Golf Head cover and asked me to put it on her Christmas list! Kid approved for sure.
