James has completed his lessons at Brighton Ski School and he loved it! There were five weekly lessons, but he unfortunately missed one due to our surprise trip to Orlando for Matt’s show. The second lesson was where the majority of the video footage comes from. Chris spent most of the lesson just watching and videotaping since I couldn’t make it to that one. At the end of the very last lesson, the kids have a “race” where they are supposed to slalom down the little hill to the bottom. As you can see in the video, the weather was nuts. It was snowing like crazy and it was really wet, slushy snow, which is unusual for Utah. It made the skiing conditions really difficult for the little kids who were unsteady to begin with. James ran into one of the gates and hurt his ankle (which he mostly recovered from when one of the ski instructors gave him a candy bar) so he didn’t quite finish the race. He was super disappointed in himself and his performance. That kid is one tough competitor. Chris is going to take him skiing, just the two of them, and they are going to work on turns, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to try to go down that course again. Overall, we think he did a great job and we are very proud of him!
