My Mom allowed my brothers and me to skip school and ski - but not to stay home for the common cold. Playing hooky meant playing in the literally sense. I love her for that and treasure our family ski days. She is a cool mom - to this day. My husband & I had our moments when we took the kids out of school for an educational ski vacation... midweek slopes, new mountains, snowy science and geography lessons - right?! You certainly broaden your kids' horizons and they learn a lot while traveling - our that's how we justified it! Add the reality that you save money and have the slopes to yourself when you travel non-holiday and ski midweek and its almost irresistable!
