Good tips guys, thanks. We went to the park yesterday where there is a sledding hill. Not ideal conditions, but worked for a little learning. I had him skate around a bit, do some 1 foot glides, and after about a half hour got him to where he can heelside slide slip and falling leaf down that little hill with out falling. I'm going to have him watch Snowolfs videos before we go, and maybe go to the park again if the snow stays around. I took a few "runs" myself, felt great even though riding on 4-6" of snow over frozen ground on a hill only big enough to link 2 turns kind of sucked, it was still fun.
