  • How to Start ‘Em Young

    by Mitch Kaplan

    Rippin' Rider Piper with Sis More than anything else, we with snowsliding in our blood are anxious to get our little ones onto skis. How to best get them off on the right foot?

  • Don't start too soon. Your child's behavior will tell you if s/he's ready. When s/he shows a curiosity, it's time.

  • Keep it local, and keep it brief. Unless the whole family's doing a reunion in a major destination resort, start out at the hill most local to you, and keep the sliding short - an hour at most.

  • Engage the Pros. When the time comes to really get into it, go to a resort that dedicates a significant amount of attention to kids' facilities and instruction, and enroll your child in ski school or daycare/ski school. Avoid teaching them yourself. Unless you've been trained to teach kids, you'll avoid a lot of interpersonal hassles, and you'll reap the rewards of sharing their progress and newfound love of snowsliding.
