You know it's fall when even the kiddies are thinking about the slopes.
This from business editor Joanna Bean:
"My second-grade daughter told me about a recent school assignment: 'We had to write about something we do as a family. So I wrote about skiing,' she said, pausing. 'It made me want to go.'
"Music to my ears!"
If you've got a fifth-grader or sixth-grader in your house, consider Colorado Ski Country USA's 5th Grade Passport.
