Children can start lessons and skiing from 3 years old, however, I would recommend group lessons at this age if you learn alpine skiing. Children can start cross-country skiing from 2 years old. My daughters started with cross-country skiing on age 2 and then alpine skiing on age 3. To combine both is also a good idea because cross-country skiing learns to balance and feel the skis.
Magical winter moments on cross-country skis
Have you ever tried cross-country skiing? If not, you should try. This is a best way to experience the beauty of winter in Norway. Cross-country skiing is some kind of meditation. It gives you a lot of energy from nature and amazing refreshment to your body. This is also a great way to be in nature and to enjoy the wonderful winter landscapes.

Winter swimming was one of my important goals in 2019. I started preparing for it in May 2018.
I took a cold shower every morning during the last months. I felt amazingly good! In combination with meditation, it was a great start of the day. The Iceman Wim Hof inspired me to explore more about winter swimming and I decided to try that in January 2019.
There is just one life for each of us: our own.
