Many children are impressed with freestyle skiing. This adventurous sport is now featured in the Olympics and impresses most (if not all) with its difficult and creative tricks. Children can participate in freestyle skiing exercises as long as they are being supervised by an experienced freestyle skier.
Be warned, children often have difficulty with freestyle skiing due to their small but growing bodies. As long as they are wearing the appropriately fitting skis and apparel they should be able to enjoy most forms of freestyle skiing. Parents often will bond with their children while the family learns to freestyle ski together. Just make sure you are learning about this exciting sport under trained supervision!
