Lesson 12: Wrapping it Up
Rich talks us through all the different steps we have now learned in order to safely teach a child how to ski. From using wedgies to teaching the child the “power wedge,” we have now learned the important steps. Rich thanks you guys for taking the time to watch the videos. Now its time to go out there and make your kids the next Bode Miller or Lindsey Vonn!
Both of my boys ski raced in high school. We have actlauly had kids join the team who had never skiied before high school. I think the key is to do your best with the dryland training as well as the mountain training and just stick with it. My older son did ski some varsity his freshman year, but improved a lot as each went by and ended up coming in 7th in the states his senior year (last year) and was invited to the northeast regional high school races. My younger son is a sophomore and also a varsity skier but is still developing. He loves it.I think you will be fine and really have a lot of fun.
