I just got back from my annual family ski/snowboard trip to 7-Springs Mountain Resort in PA. We have been taking this trip for 35 years and it's where I learned to ski when I was seven. This year I had the opportunity to share the thrill, excitement and love of everything cold, white, and steep with my two children.
My daughter is 4 years old and my son is almost 3 years old. They both got to experience the amazing adrenaline rush from sliding gleefully down the mountain on 2 fiberglass planks, and I got to experience the amazing happiness from being able to share my love of the mountain. But instead of waxing on about how "amazing" it was I want to present what I learned from sharing my love.
