Instead, my father and I took Katie to Mohawk Mountain, in Cornwall, CT to learn how to ski! Perfect weather, in the low 40s and mostly sunny. We enrolled her in the Snowhawks class as a Never Ever, meaning never ever been on skis before. The instructors did a great job and in no time at all she was riding up the "Magic Carpet Ride" and skiing down by herself. My father took a few videos with his camera - just click on the image and it should work.
After her lessons she went back up the Magic Carpet and skied some more, this time on the harder side of the beginner hill and never fell.
