Here's a shot of my son in december as he approached his 7th birthday a couple weeks later
As of last weekend, he's dropped the wedge so i need to get another shot of him tearing it up. He also discovered the terrain park in january. So, more shots to come...

great family activity that lasts throughout the years.
my 8yr. old is able to ride most of the mountain and thick snow away from groomers now.
watching other families have success and exibiting patience beyond my usual parameters allowed mine to flourish on snow.
i hope he will wait for me in a couple of years.

Thing #1 makes the podium in 2nd in the first regional jr.comp of the season. Pretty soon he'll be too old for the 'kid stoke' thread. Seems like yesterday he looked just like the ones above on his plastic skis. Thing #2 finished 8th! Thing #1's the one in the red shirt. Only 1/4 of a point off of winning, but he was stoked to have his crew up there with him.

My nine year old stepson last week taking on some steeps off the High Lift at Crested Butte on his S7 Juniors. Next year he'll probably be to old for this thread so I'll have to post up pics of my little girl who'll just be getting her start
We did lap after lap into Teo without a hint of complaint from him about the hike. Dude was stoked on the adventure of skiing the double blacks with his dad even if it meant some hard work. Super cool.

Thanks fellers. It's pretty awesome indeed and I have one more coming (now 11) to the big mountain arena next year after several years of racing. I'm excited to have three kids on the junior circuit. Fortunately, the tall tee thing never really hit our household, though they do seem to like their pants baggy. Oh well. As long as they're ripping and love it I really don't give a shit what they wear.

BF, I havenít forgot you, images of Q coming.

I enjoy this thread because it weeds out much of the "I'm so core, I don't care about anyone but my own bad self" attitude portrayed by some. It's all about the good vibe of a younger generation getting to know and love what we all know and love.
Watching your child ski their first black diamond, launch their first airs or even take some of their first serious diggers is a breathe of new life.
A quick story - no pic: This past week, my 5 year old girl called and left me a message at work... in the sweetest little girl voice you can imagine... "Daddy, I was wondering if we could go skiing today..." Yeah, I left work early and we hit the slopes. A family that skis together stays together.

Here are a couple of the 400 short vids Ive shot this year.
The first is Owen telling it like it is.
The second is Team Owen, my Owen and and Telemikes Owen, in the Kirkwood park. Mikes Owen boosted the tranny lip but being a dad I turned to my kid too quickly and missed it. These two were born a week apart back in 06 and it was cool finally getting them together.

All this stoke of super young and up to teens is AWESOME. Being a parent is fantastic and being the parent of a skier even better. The day they make it down from the summit unaided is indescribable. It happened for us the other day. I've been out with Bridger a lot this winter, he's got about 30 days on snow by my calculations. This past week or two has seen MAJOR breakthrough for him and then Thursday the conditions and weather were prime. He took 3 summit runs in the am and 2 in the pm. Almost top to bottom and with no help at all from myself or grandpa (who's just as stoked as I am).
Oh and he's not quite 3.5, born in November '08. A small clip from Thursday at Magic, VT:

Since the Tahoe season began (Jan 20ish), I have had a great family ski season.
--Wilson 4.5 has 11 days, and has made great progress (vid at bottom).
-----His mom really taught him everything, he is nervous about lessons (and we didnt push), and on weekends I am manning Calvin.
--Calvin had his first ski day (loosely speaking) at 18 months.....and now he has 5 days of lift riding with family.
Photos from last 3 weeks:
Sunday.....Wilson skiing off the top of Rose.
I pushed it too far with little man. From top of Rose he wouldnt ski between legs, so I carried....he was quickly asleep, for the whole run.
Vid from Sunday.....Wil at almost 4.5 years old.
Donjoy to the World!

Awesome Huckwheat!! Your little guy asleep is classic.
So proud of my little one (Scarlet Begonias vid). Can't wait to take some turns when they finally get to AK.

your kids look so cute. At what age do they start skiing?
