|good, weight forward turns - we told him to put his hands on his knees|
|weight back - plenty of time to fix that. I'll make it a part of the "stand on the sweet spot" lesson|
|getting the evil eye from O|
By the end of the (lift served) season N was doing blue runs top to bottom without help. Next year we'll add some more lessons between our legs to help a narrower stance, get the feel of edging and introduce weighting and unweighting - the flow from turn to turn. And how to get up on his own. Especially how to get up on his own.
Next year O gets to go leashless.

|asleep. not kidding|
|O was asleep until about 1/4 way down Mary Jane run. Then he REALLY liked it!|
A great day in the slush. The kids skied more than ever before.
The adults actually skied (we even got one good bump run apiece at the end of the day).
