My daughter (thank goodness) progressed very well during her multiweek ski lessons, and I took her skiing up at Crystal Mountain for the first time on Sunday. We skied 10 laps on the beginner chair (Discovery). I'm wondering how I can ascertain when her skiing ability is good enough to try a more difficult chair? Discovery is very easy skiing.
I recognize that there is a maturity element to standing in lift lines and handling herself on the chairlift, and that we should enjoy her time on the beginner lift where people are patient and expect to be around beginners.
But the father in me wants to see her progress to more challenging lifts!
