KIds first week skiing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My kids made it through their first week of ski lessons at winter park. My 4 year old daughter spent the day on the magic carpet, and enjoyed herself even though it was quite cold. My son who is 8 did much better then i thought he would. He was nervous going into the lesson about riding the ski lift. I didn't actually think he would ride the ski lift on his first day.  I was shocked when i saw him skiing with his group on one of the beginner runs. He was already making nice turns and looked to be having a good time and also was in control. They have two more weeks of lessons so hopefully the progress continues.

Today was the last day of the minnows program for the kids. My daughter went from a level 1 to a level 2 and no longer needs the edgie wedgie. My son went from a level one to a level four. They both had a lot of fun and i was quite happy with the progress they both made. Here is a pic of my sons class..he is the one in the green helmet.

Sounds like the kids will be raring hit the slopes in the future.  Are you going to take them for some fun spring skiing?

Yes, I will take them some more this year. It was almost like spring skiing today. It was like 42 degrees at the base of the mountain .

We had a fun day at winter park. It was really warm,which does not help much for extending this season , but we will enjoy it as long as we can. They are both able to follow me down the beginner trails,so we spent the day on the porcupine trail lol.
