Love this thread, so much stoke in here that I had to share to.
My daughter 2 1/2 year old Piper is feeling it to. Had a break out day last week, 10 laps on the Time Tunnel (AKA ballroom carpet, but she's a huge Dinosaur Train fan) at Mount Hood Meadows. She sticks to the fall line as she doesn't have the turning thing down yet, but it's getting to where she doesn't want any help.
She makes snow angels to mentally prepare for her run.
Into the TIME TUNNEL!!!! Gives the 2 thumbs up as she cruises upward. Pretty toasty day and with the snow a little sticky it helped with the runaway child problem.
Is it bad that when someone asks where she lives she responds with "The Ski Area"?
We were all so stoked that we let her drive home.
Thanks everyone for sharing. The anticipation of the coming years is such a great feeling.

Dude, Owen is killing it. I'm gonna have to ask you about the mini tour set up a few years down the road. Here is a cell phone shot of my little guy at the top of his run on his second tour day. With him in the bjorn, I stuck to the groomed runs this year. Top of chair 1 for his second run of the day. He loves it.
When someone commented on his steeze, he got ready for fisticuffs.
And his older buddy a few weeks back when we still were finding some wind blown.
Loving this thread and all the kid stoke. Can't wait to show my son when he gets a little older.

Skinned for turns with K and O at SP on the way home from Mammoth today. The kid did great and had fun, even though, as he said to his mommy "the skiing isn't very good". We had to explain that we needed to climb a bit (a bunch) higher to get to better snow. But he slashed the slush and crushed the cups like a big guy. We are very lucky he'll hike for turns with us and have such a good time.
he was bit annoyed by the Hoover Maneuvering we had to do to get back to the truck

Another few weeks and those sun cups will swallow him whole. It is killer that he is so willing to hike. I only hope to be half as lucky with my guy. Just want to get him out as much as possible. Plan to do more hiking with him on my back next season and then get him on to his own skis the next one. But even then, I think I will take him out for some touring, so he sees the beauty outside the resort.

will you help Owen learn how to surf?

In any case, if you're ever really in this situation make sure you at least bargain in a couple of fluffers.

This was the 2011/2012 kid stoke thread. We changed the title to "ONGOING KID STOKE" to preserve all the great info and answers to questions that get lost each season with a new thread.
This thread is now ongoing and can be used to post Stoke, TR's, questions and any advice in regards to skiing with little ones.
Anna and I have not gotten out yet; but, she did pick up a new kit this year and is excited to get out. Last week she put on her boots and skis and walked around the house pretending to ski.
We also added a little boy skier to our family this summer. Looking forward to getting him out in the pack near the end of the season.
Here's to a snowy winter!

Ahhh, after a long search for this thread I find the title was changed.
Time for some 2012 - 2013 KIDDIE STOKE!!!
My just turned 4 year old has been SHREDDING!! At 23 days away from having baby #2, my ski days this year have been spent skiing with him (he's at 12 total so far). I think I've done well by him The little maniac won't stay out of the powder and trees and always finds the most fun way down the hill. No issues skiing off the summit of Eaglecrest, killing the blues. Wish I could ski harder with him, but not for a few more weeks.
We got a helmet cam from the grandparents for Christmas (something tells me they miss skiing with him and are hoping I make them lots of videos). Here's the first go around with it yesterday. Sorry if it's a bit shaky (or too long). A last minute decision to film and I carried the camera vs. mounting it on my goggles. Lesson learned.

oh the joys of the groms

My 9yo tailgunning some springy mid-atlantic gnar. It was one of those days full of high-fives and awesomness that I couldn't wait for when he was 4 and I know he won't want when he's 14. Soaking up as much of this as i can.

Play all of them with the volume at full blast so you can hear Asher (2 years old) talking and singing. Both songs are pretty funny.
