How old when you started?

I'm interested in knowing how old most of you were when you started skiing? I(m wondering if those who start earlier really do turn out to be the best. I started skiing at around 10 years old, which I'm guessing is pretty late compared ot most of you...

Not really, I only started skiing when I was about 12 - 13.

Like I said in a different post, I started at the age of 12 with the help of my dad. I think it's good to start at an early age because you won't be embarassed as much if you were to fall, heh. It also helps to build confidence at a young age.

It seems to be the same for all the younger ones. It's scary to see some of them fly down the piste with their crash helmets on.

I started about 12,

Would have loved to grow up in a country with a skiing season, but you can't have everything.
