    We did have one small scare. Our friends Kimi and Jeremy came with us and their daughters were skiing with Jeremy and I. Their youngest is 7 and she likes to go fast and this is only their second time skiing. We had gone down a couple black groomers earlier in the day so she was feeling pretty confident in her ability which led to her bombing down Kit Carson (a blue) so fast that she was unable to make the turn at the bottom. Luckily her feet caught a small tree before she got to the steep drop off. Here is the video. Please excuse the quality, I had grabbed the wrong filter for the go pro and didn't realize it until I watched the footage later. It's all a little over exposed.

    Wow! Glad she didn't get hurt. In a way maybe it will turn into a good good learning lesson for her to know just how quickly things can go wrong. Hope it doesn't scare her from being adventurous though. You guys did a good job of handling it calmly.

    She was a trooper, went back up and down the mountain 3 more times that day after this. I almost lost my snow board. There was a guy standing close by and when she went off the trail he took off after her. I tried to stick my board in the snow but did a poor job because I was moving so fast and it fell over and started going down the hill. Once the random guy saw I was going to make it to her first and that I knew her he then took off and rescued my board. Nice to know there are still good people out there!

    Our little girl is in her third season on skis, she's 5. We take her about 10 times a year. She has progressed nicely from all the greens to mild blues. She will be better than my wife in another year or 2. MJH, you would be impressed with P. We will have to find time to get some laps in.

    That's awesome! I wish we were able to go that off. We need one of those indoor hills in Houston like they have in New Jersey. I'd take the kids once a month or so if we had that.

    She is a trooper! That was the thing that scared me most about skiing with our kids at the start. I didn't want them to get hurt in a way that they would decide to never ski again, but I also didn't want to impede their progress. I worked to make sure they had good fundamentals and that they were in control and then let them pick the way. After a spill like that I would review with them what went wrong and we would figure out if it was something they needed help correcting or if it was just something they had to experience to allow them to improve. We go just about every weekend and every one of them is now an excellent skier and rarely do we have concerns.

    The only other suggestion I might have would be to work with her on the turns. Take a run and go down a long hill top to bottom and call out turns to her and make sure she is keeping her legs together and turning parallel with her speed in check. I have helped teach a lot of extended family and neighbors and I have had to correct issues for many others where they sit in the snowplow stance for way too long, which will impede progress. She is starting out extremely strongly though! Great job!
