  • My kids are 5 and 3 and DH and I were talking about taking them this winter, but we haven't done it yet. I think the 3 year old may be a bit too young for it...but the 5 year old is ready. A girl I work with said she had all 6 of hers skiing by the time they were 3 though :)

  • LOL, I've never been skiing, and I'm almost 30. I grew up in the desert, and my parents usually stuck pretty close to home. There were places to ski in the mountains, but we never went. I'm sure when dd's old enough, dh will probably take her skiing. But she's still tiny.

  • Never (they are 10, 9, 8 and almost 5). I've also never been skiing. This is the first time in my life that I've lived close to a ski area.

  • I'm 32 and never been - neither have my kids. We prefer spending snow days making forts and snowmen, we're not the skiing type

  • My son isn't quite 3 and he has never been. We've put him on his bob skates, though.
