Competition amoung Brothers

Thanksgiving weekend brought me four young lads from Arkansas. They wanted to ski and mom signed 'em up for four days of lessons. Nick, Blake, Nate, and Brad - brothers they are - showed up with plenty of enthusiasm. All are fairly athletic with a background in Tae Kwon Do. We started off at Mt. Bueler on the magic carpet. Once they picked up the fundamentals, off we went to Explore Peak 8 and Peak 9!

It was really fun to watch the competition between the brothers - both in the need for speed and on technique. As we progressed in our learning adventure, the first teen would 'get it' and start showing off for the others! All in good fun. Overall, a very good start to the ski season!
