I'm glad you guys posted about this. Reminded me to go to Crystal's website and check stuff out. I ended up reserving a spot in the little kiddie ski school for Bella.

Just $55 for a two hour group lesson, rental for the whole day and a snack. Feels like a steal to me.

She's excited about it. She's telling everyone "I'm going skiing on Saturday!" haha

Yea like I said, their ski school is totally worth it too. Our daughter wrote a story about it for her kindergarten class, complete with illustrations!

FWIW, I recommend staying away from Totem Park while they're doing the class too. Kids tend to do better when the parents aren't hovering around.

Yeah, I read that somewhere in the last year or two so I was going to use that time to go to the lodge for food or whatever and maybe spy from a distance.

Thanks for the recommendation on this place. The little one is really excited. We've been showing her videos of young kids skiing so she can understand it what to look forward to.

Keep this in mind for next year too: Caberfae's ski school is only 39 bucks for 2.5 hours including all day rental and snack. Our daughter had fun at that one too, though the I was more impressed with Crystal's (plus they have a carpet which is easier for the little ones). Still, we totally got our money's worth out of it and will probably start the boys there next year just to save a few bucks!

Do you have any idea how many Asians I see at Crystal Mountain? Well, I don't either but you'd be surprised.

Plus doesn't the dude wear a mask anyways, like some sort of snowboarding ninja (ok, ok I do too)?

That's what he's been wearing, at least when I was still riding. I'd give you my cell so you can text me but I doubt I'll be with him while he is out.
