When they want to at a pace they enjoy.
My kids each started at a different age based on their interest, their physicality, and the time we could find. By the time they were 5, each of them could ski on easy greens, and were starting to enjoy it. By last season, with our youngest at 6, we were skiing as a family around the mountain on easy terrain.
Allow them to lead. When they get bored, stop. When they get cold, tired, or hungry, stop. If you just do one run and they are done, stop. If they don't want to go, don't. If you force them, they may hate it the rest of their lives, and it's too joyful and experience to ruin it for them early...!
