    Just got skis for my 18 month little girl, going to try some flat land touring in March... she walks all over the house with ski poles in her hands now... next season we'll try her on a gentle slope.

By 3 they are able to ski half a day and enjoy it. I retire the edgie wedgie as soon as they have the strength to make a good wedge without it. I left one in it to long, and it took months to break a few of his bad wedge habits and get him really carving. My boys could go for the whole day by 3, but my daughter just turned 4 gets worn down by half a day. (She could probably do the bunny hill all day, but I can't)

    The reality of this was also that my wife and my personal sanity drove us to get them out their that young, but it worked on all 3 kids.

    Good luck. It is pretty awesome to share something you built your life around with your kids.


    This...start as earlier and as often and as long as you and they can take it....push them but make it fun...the faster they learn to get good the more they realize they are good and want to do it more...

    I started this one at about 24 months....she just turned 8 in Dec and here she is winning the GS race at Breck last week

    I know that the days I spend the most time on PornHub seem to correspond to lack of snowfall. But it never occured to me to graph it out!

    Watch what you say and watch what you do, kids will copy everything.

    After skiing backwards all day taking vids/pics of her, Piper figured it was her turn.

    Sage this last weekend @ 2 years 10 months. As good as the last couple years have been it is about five thousand times better taking her skiing now that she is rockin the K2's instead of riding around in her blue sled. So much fun!

    We've been finding it tough to get out as a family with a 3 year old and 1 year old. Then the backpack solution presented itself. We've even taken the little (He's actually ~30 lbs, so not so little) guy up the chair and I skied with him on my pack while my wife took held the reins of the 3 year old.

    First time on skis! She's 2 years and a couple of months. This is just play time, the real stuff starts next winter.

    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    People shooting ski areas should be sued.

    3 months of bitter cold kept us from getting Anna out much during the heart of winter. However, we decided to close the season down proper. My wife took off with some friends and headed to California while I held down the fort at home.

    Memorial Weekend 2013: Me, Anna and Van. This was Van's first day on the slopes.

    I've said it before in this thread... I know that my kids won't remember the awesome things we did with them as babies and toddlers; but, the goal is for them to never remember a time when they weren't getting out and playing with their mom and dad.
