Took my 9 year old yesterday. First time without an instructor. We had 10" the night before and the sun was out all day so it was a perfect day for learning. This was her 4th day ever and 2nd riding a chair lift. We stuck to the 270' beginner lift (just $24 for me!) that services 3 greens and 1 short blue run. By the end of the day she was turning like a boss. No falls the last two hours of the day and we finished on the blue slope. She had a blast. Next time out I think she’s ready for the 900' lift!
