If your little ones are the adventurous types who thrive on adrenaline, downhill skiing or snowboarding will be a big hit. Although it may require a bit more planning in the beginning, the payoff is huge. Unlike adults who sometimes take longer to learn a new sport, children tend to pick up skiing quickly—and once they’re hooked, it’s something they can enjoy their whole lives. Plus, on top of all the fun and exercise, it’s an activity that can provide an amazing community via classes, lessons, clubs, teams, and other groups. The key is to make sure they have high-quality clothes
so they don’t get cold, wet, or uncomfortable while they’re still learning.
