Steamboat Springs, CO After living in Colorado five years, we discovered what very well could be our new favorite ski town. A horseshoe’s throw from the Wyoming border, rich in Western history is Steamboat Springs. We spent ten action-packed days trying a little of what Spring ski season offers, which includes a lot more than just skiing. Read the full story that published today on johnnyjet.com.
The Madeline-like dorm room at Moving Mountains’ Trail’s Edge Lodge sets the stage for a slumber party. Few lodging spots we’ve stayed in our Mommy n’ me adventures have included such a treat as this room (one of just 7 in this epic-sized lodge). Perfect for large families or your family of friends. This slumber party room sleeps 5 and is equipped with its very own X-box. Kiddo comfort at its best. Read the full story here.
Lori is a single mom of an adventurous 14 year old boy named, Ames and a well-behaved goofy labradoodle dog named Sandi. They live in Austin where they love to hike, cycle or do anything on the lake.
Lori grew up as an Air Force Brat which meant moving 8 times before heading off to college. Their moves included two tours overseas in England and Germany. Her mother was the Officer's Wives Club tour chairman in Germany and Lori often got to join her on trips to various parts of Europe. It was while living in Germany Lori learned to ski as a member of the Sitzmarkers ski club. Just about once a month for four years Lori got to ski in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. She joined her father at Swiss Ski School one year.
Lori's passion for travel never left her. Her main career has been in advertising as an award-winning copywriter where she's worked at top global ad agencies in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
