When you pull Lena these days, is she in a chariot? On her own skis? What's the best approach?

I'm pulling her on her downhill skis. This works now really well. Last year the chariot was the best option for her. She has loved both options and you probably have to see individually what the kid prefers. We made surprisingly good experiences when we didn't push the kid to go up "the next level". Suddenly they were just ready.

Btw, I have an elastic cord (not just a rope) to pull her. If you are interested I can show you pictures.

Yeah, I'd be interested in seeing pictures. So far, I've only used the chariot, but I think soon Inara will not want to be in it anymore. Thanks!

BTW, Marc also pulls both kids at the same time for added trainingeffect!! Amazing!! Boris, you can always add more effort by adding kids to pull ;-)! But the kids don't just get to be pulled, they also have to do some "work", that is be aktive in breaking on the downhills, getting somehow around the bends and generally be attentive and responsive to the demands of the track. But they seem to have lots of fun and are cheering on their papa ;-0).
