Many skiers go through an intensive transition in "Ski Life." They go from skiing all day on Pali, many days a week, to spending brief spurts on Molly Hogan teaching the kids to ski. If the skier is lucky, she trades off ski time with her spouse and spends 1/2 the time of Pali and 1/2 the time of Molly. Watching more and more of us go through this transition, it becomes apparent we need to enhance the experience for the "wee" ones and especially for their parents. Pika Place is now open. It is a great place for anyone to get started with the sport. It is an especially great place for kids to get started.
