My son is too fast for me too, but so what, he has a 50-60 pound advantage and 35 years less age. We chose the trails together, we ride the lifts together, we start out down the mountain together and we meet up on the way down. I don't mind skiing myself and catching up. I ski for the fresh air, the amazing views on the way down, and the fun of it.
Your dad needs new equipment that will show him a whole new skiing experience. And its not the actual skiing together that matters as much as being together, talking about the snow and the day and realizing there's something that you both do that you hold in common. Besides, I'm frequently passed by fast moving 70-somethings at Sunapee...
