Don't be this guy.
As some of you may know, besides riding and racing my bikes, I love to ski. Downhill. Fast, usually. I'll ski most anything as long as it's not too ridiculously moguled up; I sucks on the bumps. Anyway; New Year's day had me on the slopes at Roundtop with my girls. They can now ski almost anything I can. I never dragged them onto slopes they couldn't handle; I let them decide. On the way up the chair on one of the 2 "Expert" trails we see this dad, out with his daughter, who can't be more than 5 or 6, on this slope, more or less dragging her down it. What an idiot. Sure isn't going to help her; probably scared the shit out of her. So, if you're a dad (most moms wouldn't do this, I suspect; it's a dude thing), DON'T effing do this to your kid! Be a sport. Wait until they're ready. Then they'll soon be kicking YOUR ass on the slopes.
