129. The Beginner


The Beginner Skiier
The legend of
The Beginner Skier

Young people can begin to ski around the house at a very young age. When they are 4-6 years old, they may be ready to go out the trail with their parents.
Strap on skis work well, because they are cheap and regular snow boots tend to be warmer than cross country ski boots.
One of the first skills to teach is how to get up.  This is easier for the parents back, and also helps avoid a lot of fussing over the fact that they feel stuck in the snow. When the child falls, show them how to put the skis up in the air, then to one side, then get on hands and knees and push themselves up. It works well to start in the back yard to get practice and not even use poles at first

The Beginner Print #129

Michigan Prints are now acid free! We realized that our older prints we were selling previously were printed on regular paper are not aging well. Many of the prints shown here on MichiganPrints.com still have the older buttons showing the older price for this older and aging (and less expensive) product. We are now offering prints that can be handed down for generations. The black and white is brilliant and high quality. The color is spectacular!

To order our new acid-free prints, just copy the print name (or type it in, with the print number if possible) into the space below. Some prints are in color and also black and white. If you are looking at a color print, just add the word "color" to the name. No extra charge for color if the scene is shown in color.
