    I can't let this slide without a clap.

    Mammoth local and big mountain legend Steve Klassen out riding with his daughter Kinsley. To all the helicopter parents out there that have a problem with it, Steve has clearly stated that he does NGAF.

    Ski trip to Georgia in month 5. She found groomers a lot scarier than touring and freeride because of morons. After that the season was meh and about one day at month 6ish.

    She climbed until month 8.

    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    Does anyone have any experience with a good backpack for hiking and skiing?

    Does anyone have any experience with helmets for <1 year olds?

    If you are of the opinion that skiing with your kid in a backpack is a bad idea, PLEASE quietly move onto another topic. I’m honestly just looking for advise from people with experience doing what I’m interested in doing. Thanks!
    I found the Giro Launch size XS for kids fit my 1yr great and it's super light, plus it has MIPS! He does have a large noggin, but I'm sure you could easily make it work. I found a helmet goggle combo on Sierra Trading post for $45, but that deal looks to be gone now. He is strong but for extra safety I'm also planning on supporting his head a little extra by using a towel to create a helmet collar like you would see race car drivers use.

    One thing I've learned very quickly having the first kid this year, and after scanning this and already seeing judgmental comments.

    I don't GAF what anyone else thinks, and I'm not going to tell anyone else what they should do with their kid.

    Amen bro! The last part of your statement may be the most intelligent thing written in this entire thread. I have this sneaking suspicion that the same parents that become borderline hysterical and feel empowered to preach with self righteous indignation about "how dangerous putting a child in a
    backpack skiing" is and how "I would never do that to my child" are the same ones that think driving 90 mph in their SUV while texting is perfectly fine.

    It's what their perception of risk is, and they won't accept any other point of view.

    Osprey poco plus FTW. Used it for two kids. Plenty of days on mellow terrain (out of the resort or after closing weekend). Some of my favorite days skiing.... also a great pack for hiking; I put over 1k miles on it all over the PNW and SW, and itís still in great shape.
