Plastic skis (buy direct), such as Kid-Ski Happy Skis and Lucky Bums Snow Kids skis, which strap onto snow boots, can be a good way to get your child used to skiing before you take them to a ski area.

Plastic skis cost about $40 - $50 a pair. They work well on flat terrain or gentle hills. These plastic skis don’t have edging abilities and cannot not be used at a ski resort. However, they are a good tool to help your child get used to "real" skis and to get used to balancing and moving on the snow.
