Ski Lessons: Day 8
Updated: Nov 17, 2019
It’s so amazing to watch your child progress from “how do I put these things on” to her first downhill “race”. Putting my child in structured lessons worked out well for our family. She was able to take feedback and work on improving her technique. Then after lessons she was excited to do a few runs with her parents.
As a family we are excited about having another activity to do, and feel confident in the basic skills she has learned. (Who am I kidding, this kid was doing blue runs her third week!) But the best part is she has FUN and loves skiing! We were able to learn so much during the 5 weeks, regarding what to do and not do, what to bring and not bring, and of course watching her grow! At the conclusion of the lesson, each kid was able to do a “race” and work on their turning while going down a slalom track.
If you are on the fence about doing lessons, I would say, go for it! We loved it, our kids loved it, and the instructors were amazing. They cared about each kid and worked hard with them to get better and better each time. Plus, our instructor also brought a speaker to blast music, so how rad is that!? I recommend checking out local programs near you. And most resorts have programs where children can ski for a reduced ticket or free. I want to give a huge shout out to Brighton Ski Resort and the wonderful instructors!
