With my sister and my Mom in town, we were able to get over to Ski Cooper as a family for a ski day. It was great to show off Sydney’s skills right in front of her Mom. Except Sydney didn’t stay with us! She thought we were all too slow for her tastes so she took off with Aunt Natalee and we never saw them again. And I didn’t worry. Sydney is totally capable now. Greens, blues, moguls, whatever. Bring it on.
The bad news…she skis like me. Self-trained and not proper but can make it down anything. I need to put her in lessons now. She thinks that is crazy. I have been explaining that she doesn’t need lessons to teach her to ski. She needs lessons to take her to the next level. She knows everything Dad knows now. I have no more to teach. She’s 8.
