When Should Kids Go Solo at a Ski Lodge?
Let the kids roam free in a small ski resort.
I probably shouldn’t say that.
But we did it, to an extent. The kids know the small resort we most often go to and we only let them go on certain lifts that don’t have many (usually just one) option to get down. We can usually see them the whole way and we’re right behind them. But on Broadway (the bunny slope), they can go up and down on the lifts and slopes as much as they like. They love the freedom, the independence of doing it all on their own, when they like, with whom they like, as often as they like.
Disclaimer: you probably shouldn’t really do this. At all. Ever.
I’ll probably get in trouble for this one …
Scary note: this post is one of my Draft clean up posts that was originally dated 2012 … which is even scarier when you calculate how old my kids were when we were letting them ski certain slopes on their own. Hey, my wife is Dutch, European, we’re relaxed. Right?
This was my only line in the post those years ago: For city kids, love the independence.
