My husband takes our seven-year-old child downhill skiing at a local ski resort and lets him ski down runs alone . . . I'm not a skiier and I've not been there to make a judgment call but even though he's a pretty good skiier (son and husband both) and is large for his age I am not too keen on this arrangement. I talked to a ski patrol volunteer at this same resort who said that the place is considered to be family friendly and full of mostly locals, however locals can be out-of-control snowboarders just as well as can be out-of-towners. What do you think?
