That's what I would recommend.
Not sure what your level of patience is but perhaps take her and just have her supported between your legs for a few runs up/down the carpet if you really want to scratch the itch. Don't worry about teaching her- just a few glides then let her play in the snow and buy some chicken tenders. Go in with the attitude of- if she actually gets on the skis it's a bonus- just get her in the clothes, play in the snow, buy the tenders/hot chocolate, build a snowman, let her watch some other kids go down- it needs to be a positive experience. Some ski areas will let you bring a sled and while you obviously can't bring it up the hill just pull her around a flat part where she can see others having fun.
BUT...patience is KEY. I'm seen many-a-dad dragging their kicking/screaming kid along in the snow FORCING them to ski and that is the worst possible thing. I would only go this route if you are PATIENT and willing to spend the $$$ knowing it's a 50/50 shot she actually gets on skis.
