    Could you slay Pow like this when you were 13?

    Checkout Squaw Valley's 13 year old Karsten Hart and his teaser edit. This kid is as Legit as they get.

    At 13, he's already knocked off Squaw's Iconic Eagles Nest, banged out some double backs and shredded some sweet pow footage up in British Columbia.

    He's got a segment featured in the TGR Grom Contest, the link is below, watch the whole segment and I'm sure you'll tap that "STOKE" button.

    Here's the Short Teaser!

    It's not your line until your looking back up at it!

    Kid is the real deal. Outrageously solid technique and so light on his feet.

    No but I was also skiing in leather boots, cable bindings and skis with no metal edges.

    He is a ripper that is for sure.

    When I was 13, the skis would function as submarines.

    I'm impressed.

    Looks promising. But somebody will have to get him up to Dana Plateau and see how he rips Coke Chute, then yank him down to the whoa Nellie and see just how many mango margaritas he can handle and still drive

    Nope.

    Because I lived on the Ice Coast where there wasn't any "pow". Only shiny, blue-ice moguls, which I could rip the absolute shit out of, but inverted aerials were prohibited at the time so I never got upside down... at least, not on purpose

    The kid's an absolute ripper, but I can think of a few others around his age who could give him a run for his money...

    wow. No. but I'd mastered the wedge. so i got that going for me.
    I demoed the TECH TALK JONG! pro model this spring and their performance was unparalleled which is good because I ski in a wedge most of the time - bendtheski, 2011

    OF COURSE...but I am, and always have been, the best skier on the mountain!!!
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.
