My kids learned to ski in the late 1990’s. Snowboarding was BIG. We had to twist their arms and offer all sorts of deals to sign them up for ski team. They could snowboard after they learned to ski was the deal we struck in a Monty Hall sort of way. Door #1 was skiing, doors #2 & #3… who cared? We knew they’d be hooked once they got it.
