The moral of this story is, when they are young, put your kids in lessons! Unless you are the big expert skier, even a 3 year old will bring you down. There are challenges to the 3 year old lessons. They aren't mature, sometimes potty trained and not very willing to cooperate. Most resorts only have private lessons at 3, which can be pricey, but worth it! A few resorts do offer group lessons for the 3 year olds, but they must be potty trained. ALL resorts will offer private lessons. Probably a good idea to call ahead.
The snow has arrived in full force and we're looking at a pretty great start to the season and hopefully a good snow year thanks to La Nina. That is a discussion for another blog.
So, we've rented the skis and we're ready to head out. Now, I'm not as mobile as my other fellow bloggers. With my equipment, Emily's, Brennan's and 2 kids in tow....it takes us awhile. The key is to pick a day when everyone is rested and happy....otherwise, you'll be very crabby by the end of the day :)
I thought I'd take Emily first alone. Just to get her "ski legs". What's that? Well, for those of you who have skied before, it is the first day of the season to take it easy and sort of "remember" how to ski. After our very successful season last year with Emily, I thought, no biggie...she's ready to go straight up the lift. NOOOO! Last run of last year was down the tram at Snowbird. For those that haven't skiied much, it is a challenging run for us adults let alone the kids.
