Fred finally got his wish.  All his kids can ski up to his level (and his wife too).  He was always a little unsure about letting the kids move from skis onto boards.  He was concerned that they’d never get to enjoy the trees or the moguls and all the stuff he loves when they are boarders.  I am not a fan of the moguls on a board but always put on a pair of skis for a few days each year to join him.  But, the kids could care less.  Trees, moguls, anything.  They have hit a new high and it is a blast.
