Haha, he is definitely not a overweight couch potatoe. He is super skinny and toned (kinda looks like a mini adult) and runs and jumps around the house all day. I'm afraid he as ADHD

Sounds good man. I'm all about spending the time with him to help him learn, it's fun for me. Before he had ski lessons I took him for a few days on the magic carpet and spent the entire time running backwards down the hill yelling "pizza wedge" while he just strait lined lined, giggling all the way to the bottom until I caught him.

Thanks for the advice. I think I might trade in his skis for a board at the rental place and let him try riding a few times before the season is over. Then let him decide what type of lessons he takes next year.
