Ski / Snowboard Lessons

007 copy

Our homeschool group organizes ski/snowboard lessons through a youth athletic program.  The girls were very excited participate this year.

Ashley picked snowboarding.

Allyson picked skiing.  Both the girls were naturals.

The girls found their groups and got acquainted to their new feet.

As I watched I was amazed at how fast the kids were up and moving on those things.  I would have been curled up in a little ball by the sign counting the minutes until the lesson was over.

“Here kids, strap these sticks on your feet and ski down the hill.”

Both of them were amazing.  Staying up on their ski’s/boards and looking great.

Ashley learned the fine art of turning.  That smile makes it look like she is actually enjoying her lesson.

This is a picture I took from inside the lodge.  That’s Ashley riding the Magic Carpet, to go higher up the hill and board down.  The lodge was nice and warm…I was sipping a hot cup of tea.  And I may or may not have been playing games on the girls IPod.  Ski lessons are fun.

That’s the Magic Carpet or ski escalator. Bye Allyson.  Have fun.  Maybe you should watch were you are going, to make sure you can get off in time.

By the end of the first lesson, the girls were zipping up and down the hill like pro’s.

Hooray, a picture with both the girls side by side. Too bad Mark didn’t snap it a few minutes earlier while Allyson was still upright.
