My first mini and me lesson. Tried to set up reasonable expectations right at the beginning, which would be most focus on Bryson and showing Matt how to help young man develop into a great skier. Bryson is 6 years old. Neither had eye protection which we had to rectify without too much difficulty. Started out on flats of base area rather than go up to Congo/Safari. Boy actually has pretty good motor skills already and can glide on one ski, turn his feet in desired directions. Enthusiastic young man and very proud dad. Dad learned more about being patient and allow son to enjoy himself in the new environment. Dad is a veterinarian. Boy is still in kindergarten. I think he said they are from Pueblo.
