Ski Mums dump husbands and kids

A group of women in Snowbird in Utah is calling on mothers to put skiing first; DROP THE KIDS, HIT THE LIFTS

Skimums was formed last year and urges women to ski together without their kids or husbands.

The group meets every Wednesday and is calling on other Mums to ski and relax with them on the slopes.

"Work, housework, volunteer work ... women can come up with a number of things they have to do (usually for others), but we seldom make time for ourselves. Skimums at Snowbird is designed to do just that," said Skimum Paula, who started the group in 2012. "Our tagline is drop the kids, hit the lifts."

There is no plan to the day except to stop for free hot chocolate at some point. Some Skimums stay just a few hours and others all day.

"Skimums seem to come home in a really good mood. No one can explain it - exercise, camaraderie, lack of oxygen, lack of teen angst, who knows," said Paula.

"The bottom line is that when women give a little to themselves, they're able to give more to others," she added.

For the spirit of the mountains
