    Ongoing Kid Stoke [2011 and on...]

    Need more kid stoke here! Toured again off of guardsman, 2 laps on west wall off of Jupiter (wind was ripping at the peak) then over to blue slip and to parking lot pickup down Erica’s.

    My thirteen-year-old and I got out on the citadel yesterday. This was a big deal for him and was his first true ski-mountaineering adventure.

    FKNA that is awesome. I'm jealous. My daughters are pretty damn good skiers but they still complain about walking up from the parking lot to the lifts, let alone doing any real hiking. Maybe next year...

    Take it slow. Start out by doing short in-bounds hikes and celebrate each accomplishment no matter how small. It is a pretty amazing thing when your kid starts enjoying the adventure and journey to the top almost as much as the ski down. My kid actually said after we skied this that: "I'm actually happy that the ski areas are closed because its encouraging us to get out on some adventures".

    The mountain where my kid did his seasonal program this winter had a group for older (pre-teen and up I think) kids that includes skinning and my kid (still way too young) thought it looked so cool, so hopefully he still has that attitude when he's old enough for us to start trying it out together.

    These programs are great. Its so cool to see race programs branch out to bring these programs to kids that love to ski but don't want to run gates all day. I coach the Junior All-Mountain team at Loveland (my kid is on the general All-mountain team). I had kids as young as 8 hiking to the top of 13,010 (Loveland's high point) and Wild Child this season, and they loved every minute of it. Its pretty amazing what a young kid is actually capable of when you put them in a group with other motivating like-minded kids that eat, breath and dream about skiing.

    What do you kid stoke enthusiasts think a fair price on a good condition used Spawn Yama Jama with the Brood fork should be right now?

    Kid stoke attached so I don't derail the thread with a lack of kid stoke.

    Several skin missions for the 9 year old since the lockdown started. We also have started riding a bunch and today he climbed the 14 switchback ride behind the house. Kid always impresses me with his attitude and ability!

    No idea, but I'd ask in one of the kid's bike threads in sprockets.

    depending on where we are with corona- / covid , either anyplace is not going to be 'to insane' because people are not traveling or not going to the ski areas ( unlikely during the Christmas holiday If it is available ) or each of the places you have identified is going to be 'to insane' for me to encourage anyone to take a four year old between Christmas and New Year's --

    ... reassess in October --

    Good luck - tj

    Tell me it’s not pink..... Just bought one new thinking these never appear used. Came in closer to purple which was a score. I will say this is an incredibly well built bike. Daughter loves it.
