    Thanks, Rich! I learned a lot from your teaching kids to ski video. I liked how it was broken down into lots of videos.

    crushed it. Thanks!! Greer is 23 months old. I don’t think our first day would have gone as well without your tips. Really appreciate it and also noticed all the great kids gear on your site. Just had our second kid so maybe I can repay the favor by ordering his gear from you guys once he’s old enough. Thanks again. If you get bored, here she is……

      THanks.. thats an amazing job for day one of a not yet 2 year old. Not sure if you’ve been out for day two yet but there often is a magical muscle learning that happens and they ski much better on day two than you can imagine. If you get a gentle slope I’ve no doubt Greer would be skiing and stopping on her own. Being able to properly balance with her own weight is most important and she looked great. Looks like she had a great time and you started her out right for which you will receive benefits for years to come.

    Hi Rich,
    Haven’t gone out for day 2 yet but will take her out again this week. I am super excited to hear about the muscle memory boost. I was telling my wife it was probably the funnest day I’ve ever had on my skis. Really great experience to share with your kid for sure.
