43 year old from Western Mass. Skied all my life, took a hiatus about 7 years back. When my son turned 9 I decided to start him on a board. I always wanted to try but even in my 20s thought it'd be too hard a transition.
Came here a while ago looking for advice for him, but got the bug after seeing a few success stories from people my age. I think from my first post some people sas I had an itch that needed scratching.
Sunday was my first time out, then Thursday, and by yesterday was managing the whole mountain (granted its just the Berkshires) and keeping up with my son. In fact him seeing me not on skis and doing the same thing as him has been great at pushing him to improve. Yesterday was a great day.
