SkiNet: So, how'd you come up with your name? Nat: It's the area code — Sean: We wanted a name rooted in Colorado since both of us grew up in Boulder and met at CU. We originally called ourselves 'Ballerado' but then I got a tattoo on my leg with '3Oh!3.' Nat: The exclamation point is cool. Sean: Yeah, and so we went with 3Oh!3.
SkiNet: What were the first 3Oh!3 sessions like? Sean: Us in a basement with my roommates yelling at us to keep it down. Now, they're asking to get on the guest list.
Skiing with your kids is more than just a metaphor. Eating healthy on the mountain can be a challenge.
Parents are told, repeatedly, that a healthy family is one that makes the time to sit together at the dinner table. If sharing a meal can have such a positive impact, imagine the benefits a family can reap by riding a chairlift together. The chairlift is a place that's at once social and personal, stimulating and serene. Ride a chairlift with a kid and you're confined with each other, with an endless array of things to talk about or to share silently.
