ENJOY YOUR HOBBY AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN
When I had kids of my own, I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to take them out skiing for the first time. Parents want to share what they enjoy with their kids, and it’s a great feeling when they enjoy it as much as you do. I wanted to pass down the enthusiasm I inherited from my parents when they shared the activity with me, and I was happy when my kids became as excited about it as I did so many years ago. The best part about skiing with my family is that we’re never competitive. All of us prefer the casual, relaxing break that skiing gives us from our daily lives. We try to have as much fun as we can on our trips, and that really makes a big difference in every experience. For almost 20 years, my kids and I have gone skiing at least once a year. The best places we’ve gone are out of state. While there are some great local places to ski near here, nothing beats the mountains in Utah or Colorado. Although it has been a while since we’ve gone out to the mountains, we always look forward to the weather cooling down for the chance to grab our skis and head out the door. As a family of three generations of skiers, I hope our love of skiing continues for many more. This month and for the new year, I hope that all of you have the chance to indulge in what you love. Happy New Year! -Dr. Steven Schulte With the Ones You Love
Everyone looks forward to the new year as the chance for a fresh start and time to try out new things. Since National Hobby Month also takes place in January, you have one of the best opportunities to find a new hobby, rekindle interest in an old one, or enjoy one you already have. For me, the month lines up perfectly with my favorite hobby and activity: skiing. Once winter settles in, I see it as an opportunity to spend quality time with my family skiing either locally or up in the mountains. I’ve been skiing for as long as I can remember, since both my parents encouraged me to make my way down my first hill. I can’t remember the exact details of what happened on that first ski trip, but what I do remember is how much fun I had. I was hooked instantly and have tried to go every year since, whenever I have the time. Skiing has been a traditional family activity for a long time and means a lot to me. Both of my parents, especially my dad, frequently skied before I was born. Even when I was old enough in school, I never joined any skiing clubs or groups because

I simply enjoyed heading out with my dad every year. I always preferred when it was just the two of us going up to the local slope or traveling out of state to ski for a day or two. We had some great trips together.
