What's happenin' everybody?
I assume there's a whole bunch of people on here who have lapped the magic carpet until their legs burned, gone in for hot chocolate three times by lunch, and hiked thirty yards back up the hill becuase someone dropped their pole. Yep. I'm talking about skiing with kids.
I just wanted to start a thread to share any tips and tricks to make skiing with a little one easier and more fun.
As for my family, we have a five year old that put in 28 days last year. We mainly ski the weekends and we usually put her in a lesson for Saturday and then ski together on Sunday. Works pretty well.
By the end of last year, we finally were able to ski all over the mountain and this year we've got a trail map at home of our home mountain (Sunday River) and we're going to mark off every trail she's skied. Hopefully, it pushes her a little to improve.
Beyond that, we do a few drills here and there, and that's about it aside from just riding.
What are your little tips and tricks?
