Hitting the slopes family style
Instilling our kids with an appreciation for skiing, and winter sports in general, has been important to us. Both Anna and Oliver started ski school at age four-and-a-half. For years, our starter resort-of-choice has been Lipno Marino in the southern Czech Republic. Lipno has a large beginner ski area and short, gentle slopes for later on. Although we’ve seen parents in the Czech mountains with children as young as two-and-a-half, we’ve waited until the children were a little older, as much for their sake as our own. Dealing with a toddler on skis hasn’t been something even my adventurous husband has wanted to tackle.
