Shames is my main hill and the runs are mostly blues off the chair; stick to that for now. You have to take the t bar to the blacks. The runs get packed down this time of year so I usually ride in the trees or off the edge of the groomers. My seven year old likes the run straight down from the chair.

My 5 year old just had a lesson at Hudson Bay Mountain and seemed to learn quite a bit. I like that hill a lot! Dry powder and LOTS of it. The blues and greens are wide with rollers to check speed (or launch off).

When I first started I went up to Sunshine and pointed her down. Going down was easy, stopping was the learning curve. Got a few pointers from my Bro in law and I progressed from there. Now I can't wait for each weekend when I can ride.
