Vanessa got skis for Christmas. I was waiting for a perfect time to go and ski with MJ. This week it had snowed lightly and the streets weren't plowed. Perfect condition for us to walk on and Vanessa ski so we strapped the skis to her boots and off we went. She was a pro! She can turn, double pole and recover from a slip. She did much better with the poles. She concentrated more since we weren't holding onto her for fear of getting skewered.
