My family and I have been in Vermont skiing for our annual ski trip. My in-laws live in Vermont and my father-in-law is a volunteer ski patroller at Sugarbush, so we get free lift tickets.
This year Micah (6) took an all-day ski lesson. This lesson made a night and day difference. We believe the primary success of the lesson was building Micah's confidence. He even managed to ski some easy black diamond trails today.
Hannah (4) is still skiing with a harness, but she has no fear. Her problem will not be lack of confidence, but learning to listen to her teachers. She is doing remarkably well for a 4 year old.
