To op, my skier bud put all 4 of his kids in boots and on skis almost as soon as they could walk...he let them play in the basement/garage and in the yard with ski boots on and skis on. Then on the hill at age 2-3 they had the boot thing down, could walk around, side-step and skier step-turn things, no real balance issues except for moving, i.e., pizza, fries....often the first day they were doing the bunny hill, lifts and on the greens on day one....needless to say all of them can rip. There are alot of toddlers that are in backpacks, front packs, kid binders mounted between dad's on the board...and they are used to sensation of riding or skiing...mind you it is pretty mellow...usually...another friend packs his infant and does a fair job of ripping around...but his wife said no backflips with the kid.
