Yep, this is how it all starts... within 'no time' these will be the daredevils... Great picture.
Tom Wilson: Never been on skis myself! Thanks, Astrid.

And I see the beginners have no poles
Tom Wilson: That seemed to be the strategy: first learning to use their bodies to do the turns and presumably later taking on the poles.
Getting the basics down before they start breaking the rules!
Tom Wilson: Indeed!

I'd have to attend this Tom..
Tom Wilson: So would I! But, never having been on skis, I'm not ready to try now!
The instructor certainly has the pose of an instructor Tom.
Tom Wilson: He obviously knew what he was doing.
cadrage extra!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Je suis content que vous l'aimiez, Jean Pierre.
My youngest grandson, four, began skiing this winter. I was amazed that they are taught without poles.
Tom Wilson: The instructor was teaching them how to use their bodies and arms to do the turns - presumably once they've done this they find the poles easy.

You made a good picture of the event.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis
A steep incline for learning... wink
Tom Wilson: Probably about the bottom 25% of the slope, Larry - there was also a smaller, real beginners' run. I guess this group must have got past that stage smile

All upright! I remember my first time...upright seemed an outcome too far!
Great shot! I remember those days!
