Both of my girls started at 3, with the old play and ski program at Gore as well as days at Hickory. To answer when is it not cool to ski with dad...They are now 15 and 17 and it goes day to day and it depends on the kind of skiing dad will do...and what friends are around. I skied all day yesterday with my 15 year old (see TR on JasonWx visit to Gore) but it was a cruiser day. If it was bumps and trees all day she wouldn't do it but my elder one would..again provided what friends are around.
Proud to call Gore My Home Mountain
Covid stole what would have been my longest season ever!
I'll be back
My son is 10 now and has been skiing since he was 4. He was in Play and Ski from age 4 to 6, and then joined the CloudSplitter Club at Whiteface when he was 7. He usually prefers to ski with his friends from the club, so we don't generally spend too much time skiing together. He's become a very good skier over the years. This week, he's been skiing with me and some of the people I usually ski with and he's been ripping it up!!!
We skied about 28500 feet of vertical yesterday and about 28800 today!!! I'm amazed that I'm even walking right now, never mind my son! It's been a REAL joy skiing with him these past couple of days, and has reinforced the whole reason I introduced him to skiing years ago. It's just been awesome!!!
My daughter, who is 14 now, has been skiing since she was 7. She also spent a lot of years in the Whiteface CloudSplitter Club and is now working as an apprentice instructor at Kid's Kampus at Whiteface.
I'm really hoping, and looking forward to be able to take a trip out West with them next season for their first Rocky Mountain skiing experience. Skiing is an AWESOME family activity!!!
P.S.: For anyone who may be interested or may have considered it, the CloudSplitter Club at Whiteface is a fantastic program and I highly recommend it!
It's easy to be against something ... It's hard to be for something!
