It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over.
The ski season, that is. That’s why I’m thrilled about a fun giveaway promotion Mile High Mamas is offering. Ski wear industry leader Obermeyer wants to send your child to Spring Break in style and is offering up one of their cutting-edge I-Grow jackets as a giveaway.
Let’s face it: outfitting our growing children is a non-stop process. That is why I LOVE the concept of Obermeyer’s innovative I-Grow system, which features a simple and unique way of increasing the life of a child’s garment longevity. By simply snipping the colored threads, the parent can lengthen the sleeves and cuffs up to two inches. Absolutely a brilliant idea.
As a bonus, SolVista Basin is always throwing in a family four-pack of night skiing passes!
