I’ve only skied a handful of times in my life – for no reason other than not quite having time to fit in any more holidays on the slopes.
I’d love to learn properly, and having taken a few beginner lessons in Lapland, watching tiny kids slaloming happily, it looks like a great family option. Although I strongly suspect Minnie would be hurtling down the hills far more quickly and proficiently than me, which could be embarrassing.
That probably makes me après-ski mum. A few sessions on the snow, then plenty of time refuelling and defrosting as I watch my daughter showing off her skills.
