Ski Trip Planning to Portillo, Chile with PR Pro Maureen Poschman

6/13/2024
Send us a Text Message. Become a Premium Subscriber and Support the Ski Moms for $3/month In this episode we meet Maureen Poshman founder of Promo Communications, a PR agency based in Aspen, Colorado that specializes in luxury travel and hospitality. Maureen and her family have lived in Aspen for many years and she shares her extensive knowledge of the area. Maureen’s agency works with Portillo, a fantastic ski resort in Chile, located a 2 hour drive from Santiago airport. Maureen tells us all about Portillo, which really does sound like a perfect family ski destination. Portillo is the oldest ski resort in South America, celebrating its 75th anniversary this season. Portillo offers an all-inclusive ski week package with lodging, meals, and lift tickets at the iconic yellow hotel surrounded by 15,000 ft peaks. We talked about planning a family ski trip to Portillo, which would be during our North American summer.. The ski season runs from June/July through late September. Families will love the kids ski free weeks, childcare, hotel activities, and ski-in/ski-out convenience. Rates are around $4,000 per person for a week, that includes hotel, meals and lift tickets. We loved learning how Maureen balances running her business with an active lifestyle. Maureen takes advantage of powder days, even if that means working later into the evening. She also works in time for yoga, skinning and family ski days. And for those of us dreaming of a life in Aspen, we learned about workforce housing that aims to make living there feasible for families. It’s clear that real estate prices have soared, and the community strives to remain accessible.

Maria started snowboarding with friends about 9 years ago (at age 30) and instantly fell in love with being on the snow. Right away, Maria struggled to find snow pants that fit her properly. She kept ripping them, squeezing into pants that did not fit well and felt uncomfortable. When covid impacted Maria’s job in travel, she saw it was the right time to launch Nobody’s Princess. After some researching and networking Maria used indigogo and kickstarter to launch her snow pants. Nobody’s Princess snow pants have sizing that includes different lengths (short, regular, tall) in sizes 2-20. The snow pants come in a variety of fun colors like aqua, violet and raspberry. We loved learning about how Maria sourced real life women from her local Facebook group to model her pants.

Jessica Winstanley Talks Skiing and Squash with the Ski Moms

Send us a Text Message. Become a Premium Subscriber and Support the Ski Moms for $3/month In this episode we meet with Jessica Winstanley a ski and squash mom, who carves out time from her busy life in NYC to ski Plattekill Mountain. Plattekill has everything Jess and her family are looking for in a local ski resort, located in Roxbury, New York, a 3 hour drive from New York City. Jessica tells us more about the sport of squash. We learn about what we would expect to see at a squash match and some of the basis rules. Squash is a physically demanding sport that requires some serious strategy. It’s fast paced and a great workout. But to bring it back to skiing, Jessica knew early on that skiing was going to be part of their family life. The family started at Mohawk Mountain (Cornwall, CT) and went on to other areas within driving distance of NYC. Eventually Jess found her happy place, Plattekill Mountain (Roxbury, NY) first taking day trips and then renting a seasonal ski house. Jessica had great things to say about the mountain’s race and learn to ski programs.

Squash is a physically demanding sport that requires some serious strategy. It’s fast paced and a great workout. But to bring it back to skiing, Jessica knew early on that skiing was going to be part of their family life. The family started at Mohawk Mountain (Cornwall, CT) and went on to other areas within driving distance of NYC. Eventually Jess found her happy place, Plattekill Mountain (Roxbury, NY) first taking day trips and then renting a seasonal ski house. Jessica had great things to say about the mountain’s race and learn to ski programs. Plattekill sounds fantastic and we hope to get the chance to check it out very soon!
