Born skiers

We have an old saying in Norway, that we are born with ski on our feet. My kids are now 2 and 3 years old, so when the snow started falling we went out and bought skis for them.

The youngest got the hang of it quite fast, this picture is taken maybe 5 minutes after we strapped the skis to her feet.

But 2 minutes later she looked like this.

We are looking forward to many years of wonderful nature experiences.

It's great that children are such quick learners. I think it also helps that they have less distance to fall when they do go down. Great images :)

Nice images. Its amazing how quickly children learn, I come from South Africa and there is very little snow here let alone enough to ski on, however in 2005 I took my son to Kirchberg in Austria and we enrolled in ski school, most of the time I was on my bottom, but my son took to it so easily and he was only 5 at the time.
