How to Get on the Chairlift
Most ski resorts have chairlifts to transport skiers up the mountain. Here's what you need to know to get on the chairlift.

While You're Riding the Chairlift
When you're on the chairlift, make sure that you keep the safety bar down, keep your ski tips up, hold on to your poles, and enjoy the ride!

Getting Off a Chairlift
Make sure you are holding your poles, and any other loose items, securely. Make sure that your safety bar is raised, and as you are approaching the unloading station, raise your ski tips slightly so you can glide off the lift. Many ski resorts have markers that will tell you when to stand up, but if not, stand up when you feel your skis flat on the snow. Once you have got off the chairlift, ski to the side so you are out of the way of the upcoming chairlifts.

Using a Rope Tow
Rope tows are often used on beginner ski slopes. When you use a ski rope tow, you will be pulled up the slope by your arms while standing on your skis. You will stand in a line, and when it is your turn, grab the knot as it approaches you. Lean back slightly as you grab the rope. Hold on to the rope, and let it pull you up the hill.

Using a Gondola
A gondola is an enclosed carriage (like a cable car) . You will need to remove your skis to ride on the gondola. Depending on the gondola, you will bring your skis inside with you, or place them on an outside rack.

Consider Kids' Plastic Skis
Children’s plastic skis, such as Kid-Ski Happy Skis and Lucky Bums Snow Kids skis, which strap onto snow boots, can be a good way to familiarize your child with skiing. These inexpensive skis can be purchased for about $40-$50 and work well for backyard snow play on flat terrain or gentle hills. While these plastic skis don’t have edging abilities and cannot not be used at a ski resort, they are a good tool to help your child get used to the long sticks attached to his or her feet.

Play in Ski Boots
Consider renting a pair of ski boots that your son or daughter can toddle around in before hitting the slopes. One of the first ways most ski schools familiarize their students with skiing is by having them walk around in ski boots. This way, your child will get used to the feel of having ski boots on for an extended period of time.

How to Introduce Your Child to Skiing
How to introduce your child to skiing, including what to wear, ski clothing and equipment, choosing a lesson program and getting started on the mountain.

Introduce Your Child to the Snow
Take your child outside to enjoy other winter activities. Build snowmen and make snow angels, go sledding or tubing, or just play in the snow. Acclimating your child to cold weather and wet snow will get them used to the elements, and remember to take breaks for hot chocolate. Also, you’ll get an idea of whether or not your child’s snow clothes are warm enough for a day on the slopes.

Explore a Ski Resort
Many ski resorts offer off-the-slopes activities for kids that will entertain your child while also establishing a positive connection to the resort. For example, the Aspen Snowmass Treehouse Adventure Center offers a great experience for kids. Also, many ski resorts have tubing parks, ice skating rinks, or gondola and tram rides that will get your child into skiing spirit.

Find a Ski Program for your Child
Do your research on on-mountain ski and day care programs and kids’ ski lessons in your area, depending on your child’s age. Some ski resorts offer lesson packages with lift tickets and rentals, and sometimes very young children can ski for free. Depending on your expectations and budget, investing in a ski lesson program often pays off.

Rent or Buy Gear
Because children grow so quickly, most parents choose to rent skis and boots. Most ski shops offer packages, and may have trade-in deals that will accommodate your growing child. It is important to invest in a quality ski helmet, though, and ski clothes that will keep your child warm.

Take Your Child to the Mountain
Once your child is ready to hit the slopes, either choose to enroll him or her in a ski school program, or, if you’re an experienced skier, you may choose to teach your child to ski yourself. Either way, remember to keep session shorter at first to make sure your child is comfortable and having fun.
