I think it’s important to learn to ski at an early age, if possible. I learned at 34 (1 month before my 35th birthday to be exact) and would never recommend that. For starters, I understand our hospitalization insurance too well and I don’t have the lower center of gravity that a small kid has. When you hit the ground, it hurts…a lot.
Kids, on the other hand, are fearless and learn so much faster. Meg started ski lessons at 7 and has also enjoyed snowboarding (especially being in class with Lil Wayne's kid) and cross country skiing. Our schedules finally eased up enough, and Mother Nature cooperated with a nice blanket of snow.
Love this pic of B. I’m more pizza slice, and she’s totally French fries on her skis!
