E has two weeks off in December for Winter break. This mean I'm also taking the time off. I'm thinking that it might be fun for the two of us to go skiing or tubing or something during that time. I haven't skied since my family left Colorado in 1979, and I haven't paid much attention to skiing in the area. Do folks have any suggestions for someplace that meets the following criteria:
isn't wildly crowded (we won't be going on a weekend, which should help) has rental equipment has classes for kids isn't insanely expensive (lift tickets under $50) is within a 3-4 hour drive from Seattle/Tacoma has cross country/Nordic skiing
I realize most of my friends never leave the city, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.
