    4 yr old is back in ski school this past weekend and was stoked. Went back out on the hill with Mom the following day for an hour; wanted to keep doing laps until she got cold. Hope to keep fueling the stoke!

    Havenít posted much lately but man has it been a ripping winter so far. Little man is straight killing it. So many jumps, so many tricks, and still crushing the race league. Took him down the Mile for his first backcountry day a week or so ago and he did great. Nothing makes me happier than ripping around with this dude and watching him LOVE to ski. So many cool kids doing great things here in this thread.

    The kids range from 11-13 years old.

    That's pretty rad for anyone, let alone an 11 year old. Nice work.

    In other kid stoke, my 10 year old beat me by a second (17 vs 18) in a training course this past weekend. I kept mumbling my skis have an 18 m radius but he didn't care.

    Little advice if you really want to beat him:
    Change your user name.
    Funny how a name can close doors, slow you down, etc.
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    I was trying to deceive him but in the end I guess I only deceived myself.

    Gave our 10 yo Granddaughter a new pair of Moment Zephyr's for Christmas. I was able to snag the last two pair Moment had last year. My diminutive wife uses one pair and our Granddaughter got her first chance to use them this past week. She is a racer but I wondered how she would handle a ski that is 101mm underfoot. A picture is worth a 1000 words.

    First race of the year a 2nd and a 1st in GS and a 3rd and 1st in SL. 42 girls in U10. Two firsts bumps her to U12 for the rest of the season. Her two wins would have been just off the podium in U12 (5th and a 4th). Conditions were bulletproof with refrozen rain on top.

    That's an aggressive line in the first pic. Awesome.

    Interesting that the U10's and 12's wear speed suits. Up here that starts at U14. Granted, it's probably a lot colder up here in Eastern Ontario/Western Quebec.

    Thanks. Conditions were really challenging with heavy rain the night before since the rain snow line was just a few miles NW of the hill. The kids weren't really able to keep things locked in so it washed out some of the less versatile groms.

    The speedsuits are completely optional in WIJARA but for whatever reason almost all the kids have them. Mostly to keep the stoke meter pegged I think.
