Ski lessons for kids have improved a lot since I was a parent. Our 3 and 5 year old grandkids had their first ski lessons in sunny Colorado. I chuckled to see how the ski instructors now deal with children who fall during these lessons. It is kind of like watching a mother cat get her kitten out of harms way by lifting the skin and pulling it up to safety. Here is the 3 year old munchkin taking a little tumble and being rescued by one of her teachers.
