Plus, low center of gravity makes balancing easier and falls (generally) less painful.
i.e. shorter distance to fall.

We thought about starting our daughter on skis only because that is what everyone else told us to do. Since my husband and I both snowboard it seemed difficult to teach her to ski. She watched us and learned so fast. Now she is much better than I am. It is all in the kid. My other daughter I can't imagine sending her down the hill. There is great gear out there for youngsters that makes it easy for them to learn.

I started my son when he was 2 at the local sledding hill he would just go down he had no interest in turning or trying to stop. When he was 3 I started taking him to a few smaller resorts around us. He would be good for a few hours at a time by the end of last season he was starting to turn and stop. Now hes 4 and always talks about it and wonders why we can't go out in July. I actually found a 20' long leash called a pony rider that lets me control his speed that has helped a lot.
