We missed the 11 am lesson so grabbed an early lunch then headed out for the 12:00 noon group. We had a great teacher, Austin, and were paired up with another mom-son duo. We headed to the bunny slope and learned to glide, skate, then finally snowboard. Or at least our best imitation of snowboarding. That slope had a "magic carpet" lift that is essentially a rubber moving sidewalk that carries you back to the top. Eventually we graduated to the chair lift and tried a few other slopes.
Grant did a great job and was game without being reckless. He absolutely loved it and is already bugging me about when he can go back. I enjoyed it, but it's a lot of effort just to get to the slopes. I'll take running. The shoes go on and off you go! We'll see what we can do to satisfy Grant's need.
The "magic carpet" lift.
This was taken when the moms bailed and let the instructor (red hood) take the two boys down a slightly steeper slope. Pretty comical!!
