Joshua Learns to Ski

January 20th, 2008 by Josef van Wyk

This weekend I decided to take Joshua skiing. It was his first time and he took to it quite naturally. Just like his father, the first thing he said was “I want to go on that one”, pointing at the highest chairlift, “to the top of the mountain”!

I decided to get him used to the bunny slopes for a bit and then we did go on to the top and the little lionheart just went for it, jumped from the chairlift like a pro and pointed his skis downhill shouting “come daddy, come!!” We had a blast!

Here is a short video clip I took while we were in training.

As you can see he also follows my approach; fast forward and when you want to stop, simply fall down… :)
