We took the children downhill skiing for the first time this weekend - it was a delight to see them take to it like a duck to water. Just so natural for them at this age. E started cautiously but by the end of the 3 days was sailing down a blue run, turning beautifully and stopping when she wanted!
A just went! Balanced and fearless he just took off! He eventually realised that turning and stopping were pretty crucial and again skied the blue run effortlessly(less turns than we would like though!) They even managed the button lift and even the scary T bar lift(I have awful memories of those things when I was a beginner......)
So guess what we will be doing more of in the future - fine by me!
