Well that's assuming we get some snow. Be very quite but I think I see some white stuff flying around right now....sadly VERY little.

Actually she...I'm sure she would if the ski school supported it from a knowing how to teach a 2 yr old to board standpoint. Their program starts at 3 but she did say to bring her out this year...to ski.

I'll have to talk to the staff of the ski school and see what they can do...if they simply don't have the training there isn't much we can do. The other issue is that in all of my looking around last evening I couldn't find boots small enough for her. I can get her a Chicklet 80 or 90 but her shoe size is a 9k and the smallest boots I saw were 11k. $80 for a pair of boots 2 sizes too big seems a bit much...if I thought she could still wear them next season that would be something but my guess is her feet will outgrow them.

Pow?POW! That's awesome if you know the GM, I'm sure he could make an exception for you if you wanted to put your little girl on a snowboard and through some lessons. I know I started skiing at a young age and found it quick to pick up on. However I believe boarding to be way more fun which is why I switched, but if yall have some season passes I'll be sure to keep a look out for you guys on the mountain especially with you being the only person on a NS Heritage haha. Also I tend to rock a pretty obnoxious white 686 jacket so I'm usually pretty easy to spot.

Here's to some snow soon hopefully as well!

Grasschopper Yea I've seen those videos...it was our plan to get her on skis a bit this year...maybe a snowboard is a better plan? I don't know if Tussey's ski school supports snowboarding at that age...I know they will take her skiing (I know the GM).

Like I said, we have season passes so we will be out there a bit...I will be the one on the NS Heritage (last year's). I have seen that App House is carrying NS now but they don't have any Heritages that I saw...so I "should" be the only one. LOL.

Tussey basically sucks...but it's only 10 min from town so nice for getting out regularly. We do try to get a couple of road trips in each year but a 2yr old makes it tough...got to get her on the snow soon.
Hey Grasschopper, I am at University Park actually and I have been waiting for Tussey to open as well (especially since I'm taking a snowboarding class next semester) I need to shake of all my rustiness . Its been maddening with all the rain but I'm sure It'll change before tooooo long haha. But for what its worth Tussey isn't too bad of a spot, my roomate and I are up there two - three times a week usually so feel free to PM me should you wanna ride at all.

Also I don't know if you might've seen this video yet but if this little girl can snowboard I'm sure your 2 year old could pick it up just as fast.

Pow?POW! Thanks for the welcome dude, unfortunately Monday probably won't work for me but I visit Camelback fairly often so I'll be sure to send you a PM next time I head that way.
