Jonah having fun in the glades on Morse

I have been working as a helper for Snow Sport University this week.  Our group is between 4 and 6 years old. We started on Sir Henry’s Learning Hill on Monday morning.  We made sure we could all turn and stop before venturing onto the Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift. We then started with mid station runs on Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift. Yesterday we had a blast on the Magic Learning Trail, Wanderer, Lower Morse Liftline, and King Billy’s Bob Den. Today we did a warm up run to mid station before we headed to the top of the Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift.  We then skied around the world, which is Midway to Curley’s Cutback and then to Meadowlark. We also had a great time in Yellow Cat’s Lair and skiing the glades off the Magic Learning Trail. Tomorrow’s fun includes more runs before the World Famous Cookie Race on Sir Henry’s Learning Hill.
