Planning a ski trip for your favorite McKinney church or school group: it’s one of those things that sounds like a good idea when you start out, but it can quickly turn into one of those “I have made a horrible mistake” moments. This is where Ski Daddy steps in. With their offices on the McKinney Square, Ski Daddy is operated by McKinney residents Mike and Leanne DiLeo, and their primary focus is group ski trips to Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.
Ski Daddy has developed great relationships with top ski resorts over the years. Hot ski spots like Winter Park, Crested Butte, and Copper Mountain work closely with Ski Daddy to make sure their groups are well taken care of. Ski Daddy handles everything from accommodations to equipment rentals to lift tickets. In addition, Ski Daddy provides an individual website for each of their groups to make managing the sign-ups a breeze for the group leader.
Mike started Ski Daddy ten years ago and will be sending over 200 groups skiing this year, so there aren’t many issues that a group might face that Ski Daddy hasn’t dealt with. Mike strives to make Ski Daddy the easiest way to plan a group ski trip. Leanne, the Ski Mama, has gleaned a long list of tips from years of mothering their groups and she enjoys helping the groups manage these small details. Mike and Leanne, along with their amazing staff, Kelly and April, strive to make Ski Daddy the easiest way to plan a group ski trip, and they’ve been pretty successful at it so far.
When they aren’t at Ski Daddy, you’re likely to find the DiLeos helping someone. Whether they are decorating their neighborhood for Christmas or helping at the school concession stand, if there is a need you will usually find them there. Mike and Leanne work closely with Tom and Becky Brockelman, former McKinney residents who are now missionaries in Sierra Leone. Between the two of them, Mike and Leanne have made several trips over to help with the Brockelman’s work. They have no plans to stop that work anytime soon.
So if you’d like to take your school or church group skiing, or a family reunion on the slopes sounds fun, get in touch with Mike and Leanne to plan your group ski trip.
