We have put them in the locals' program each season since they were each five years old - consisting of seven to ten Saturdays of skiing six hours with awesome instructors.
When I picked up Hunter and Sauce from their coaches this Saturday and said a few pleasantries, I was informed that they spent most of their day on black diamond and double black diamond runs.
Yet they were still asking to do another run when I got there!
We have reached a point with the older boys where it is FUN to ski with them. It is no longer any work to take them along and they can ski anything on the mountain amazingly well.
How fun it will be when the little boys are at the "black diamond" level too!
