My kids both race, so skiing is my world.
I'm taking my daughter to Zermatt, Switzerland for a racing clinic. Both of my daughters have been skiing since they were each five years old. They've been racing since my oldest was 8 or 9. They are both downhill Alpine racers- slalom and GS. We're just crazy about it, and that's what we do all winter. I bring my files and my laptop to the ski lodges, and I work and they race. It's been an incredibly fun sport for our whole family, though my kids are much better and faster than I am, and they leave me in the powder. They say 'We'll meet you at the bottom, Mom.' If they qualify for NASTAR nationals, I take them out West for the national competition.
