“Don’t help me daddy, I can do it myself!” – Maximus each time we get off the lift 😆
Your child isn’t an adult so you have to equate in timing around naps and the length of time they should be out before getting tired. Also, take into consideration the weather and what to do if your child gets bored. And don’t forget the snacks! Some gummy bears or fruit snacks go a long way here. Make sure you have enough to cover the whole day out even you aren’t out the whole day. And make sure to bring enough for everyone! Not only your kids but you too!
Try Leveling Up
Once you get them out with their boots on and ready to click into their skis, get them ready by starting out on a level surface, or as level as you can find. Then, once you have gotten your kids feeling comfortable on a level surface. Find an area with a little bit of a slope. nothing crazy, but just something to help them get their balance. Your ultimate goal is the bunny hill, but if they don’t get that far, if they are having a good time, all is well in the world.
Just to reiterate: start by having them walking in boots, then help them put on their skis. Focus on thier bindings, and start with a flat ground where you are pushing/stepping on their skis. Start with mild slopes then work your way up to steeper so your kids have a nice natural progression.
