"If I only had one word to describe our week in Utah with Jo and Bob is would be: PERFECT! Originally, I signed my husband and I up for the yoga ski retreat in Utah because it was the perfect union of both of our passions. He is an avid skier and I love to practice yoga with Jo and Bob. Our week away exceeded my expectations, by a mile. The yoga sessions complimented the skiing perfectly and we felt great, both physically and spiritually because of that (wonderfully led) combination. Both my husband and I ventured into new territories during the trip and felt safe and in good hands, all the while. I highly recommend the ski retreat for any level skier or yoga practitioner. Jo and Bob were so attentive to all of our various needs. It was a glorious week!" - Nancy Wise

"The Heart of the Village Yoga Snowbird ski trip was the highlight of my 2017 ski season. Beautiful winter skiing early in the week and then sunny spring skiing later. Bob and Jo were great at finding terrain for all different abilities, coordinating lunch meeting spots, and planning dinners for those who wanted to join in. And let me tell you, those yogis can ski and teach skiing. I’m loving my new attitude and skills on the cruisers. One more thing, yoga in the morning and evening was awesome for my legs. I was really surprised how the practice kept soreness away and re-energized me each day." - Joe McVicker

"When my friend, Roberta told me about the Heart of the Village Yoga and Ski retreat at Snowbird in Utah (April 2-9, 2017), I jumped at the chance to go skiing with my friend. Little did I know that I would leave the week making many new friends! Jo and Bob led our group through two hours of yoga each day and ski-toured us around the mountain. The yoga and skiing left me refreshed and reinvigorated. The yoga eradicated the ski boot pain…and all other pain, too! The valet service eliminated carrying the skiis :) The themes and stories Jo & Bob shared while leading us through yoga left me thoughtful, hopeful and grounded. I skied six days in a row…I do not recall ever doing so, even as a kid. I am far from a good skier and Snowbird proved to be a challenge for me. But I skied it. Well, some of it. I am thankful that points were not awarded for gracefulness. That I lack. But courage…that, I possess. Thank you, Jo & Bob for a wonderful experience." - Nancy Sardone

April at the 'Bird historically boasts sunny days with spring corn snow as well as powder days. Snowbird is big mountain skiing with long groomers and lots of off-piste skiing. Days are free for you to ski and explore Snowbird at your own pace. Beginner slopes at Snowbird are similar to expert slopes at Bromley and Stratton. Jo and Bob will be available to help guide you and familiarize you with the vast terrain at Snowbird. Ski Lessons are available through the Snowbird Mountain School where Bob and Jo taught skiing 2004 - 2010. We return to Snowbird year after year for the quiet, big mountain experience. If you are looking for nightlife you won't find it here. If you are looking for a backcountry experience inbounds you've hit the jackpot!
