Q gets most improved skier award! On Friday he started off very shaky - holding onto dad's hand and not at all comfortable (we didn't ski last year after all and he'd only skied a couple of days before that). By the end of the 3 days he was zooming down the intermediate slopes and had done a nice job of changing from wedge position skiing to parallel skis. Awesome. Give the kids another day or 2 and they'll be heading down slopes I won't want to do - they are already faster than I am. At least they have a dad who can ski.
