Family President's Day Weekend at AMC's Noble View Outdoor Center in the Pioneer Valley, about 1-1/2 hours west of Boston. Activities include hiking, snow shoeing, x-c skiing, and family 'snow fun' like sledding or making snow people! The accommodations are rustic, but comfortable and cozy, heated by wood stoves. The twin beds have mattresses, but we bring pillows, sheets, and blankets or sleeping bags. We need to be flexible regarding sleeping arrangements which may be co-ed to keep families together and some kids will be in sleeping bags on the floor.

I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.

Eddy Luttmer eddy.luttmer@gmail.com (617-413-1815; Before 9pm)

I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
