    This is great advice - thanks, team!

    1) Steamboat not on pass. I concur awesome kid spot. We know someone who goes there all the time and will get there at some point.
    2) The idea of Bridger having good kids' terrain makes Big Sky more attractive, b/c can get a bonus day at Bridger on the way in or out.
    3) Sunshine just looks freakin' awesome, but more research needed to see if I want to schlep up to the Great White North with two kids under 7.

    missed the thanksgiving wkd storm for the las vegas invitational, but watching the 12-yr-old play is a blast. down 2-0 early in the final, the boys stormed back and tied it at 2, and again at 3 with 10 left, and won in pks. the 12-yr-old had 2 goals in the final and 5 goals in the tournament. pretty resilient group.

    My kid's first day of ski school (3 yr. o.) on Saturday. Got to go ski trees for 5 hours, and when I picked her up and asked her how it went her first response was "fantastic!" Teacher said she was the group's morale booster. Pretty stoked.

    My boy turned 4 a month ago. Started him skiing at two. First couple years he was just to small to exert any influence over skis. Wherever they pointed he followed. Yesterday was the first day out this year. After one run with leashes he was ready to go. He skied for 3 hours straight, ate some lunch and then skied another hour. I'm not sure which of us had more fun. Watching him how to learn how to use his edges is awesome.

    Enjoy it. Once they are off the leash, it literally gets more fun every single day.

    Awesome work for a 4 year old!

    I'm going through the same thing right now with my just turned 3 year-old. Second season just started and he's not quite ready to exert much pressure on his edges. We work on "hands on knees" to keep him forward and balanced and playing with the fall line. Pretty much just heads the direction his skis are pointing, so we do a lot of zig-zagging across the hill.

    First day out for these 2. Can't wait until 3yr old learns how to stop, she likes to go fast. FYI I had nothing to do with helmets.

    Have you thought of whistler for your kids vacation? Ski school is in the middle of the mountain and seems like a fun place kids on and off snow.

    Banff and sunshine would be another solid option. Again ski school in the middle of mountain. Town of banff will have just as much Xmas lights as whistler.

    Have any of you filed down the edges of your kids skis, snowboards, or snowskates? Iím in a process of filing down the edges of my sons snowskate. My hands and arms are tired from using a file and I only managed to do little damage to the nose... I heard kids using angle grinder to file down the edges for rails. Either way Iíll finish up the nose and tail section.

    Just wondering if itís worth filling down the effective edges. Iím thinking itís worth it because he is not gonna curve and itís safer when the snowskate flips upside down.

    Do you worry about your kids double eject and land on skis with sharp edges?

    Why the fuck would you do that? Skis need edges. Iíve never worried about edges cutting my child.

    No. Never.
    I would be more worried about them running into a tree, another skier, or a lift pole because they have no edges on their skis and cant turn or stop.

    Buy a detuning stone, and give that snowskate a few swipes and you should be good to go.

    I sent a kid down in a patrol sled once because she fell on her ski and cut herself pretty deeply on it. This is another reason to make your kid keep their shell jacket zipped. She wouldn't have sliced herself if her jacket hadn't gotten rucked up. So it's not impossible, but corn rash in that scenario was the greater hazard.

    In no way does this make me want to detune my own kid's skis.

    Well, I might keep the effective edges untouched, but nose and tail will be rounded.
