I was skiing yesterday at this little hill in bumfuck Minnesota and there was this little girl named Katie (probably 5) hiking a small flatbox at the top of the park on her old skis. After a few hikes she'd ride down and pop off all the rail lips and ride back up.
I cheered for her at one point, and she smiled and skied on. A little while later she was hopping onto this steeper longer box within the rest of the park. Girl was a rockstar! I was so stoked to talk to her and tell her how awesome it was to see her shredding the park. Little later her friend was following her through. TWO sub 5 year old girls in the park with little experience just slaying. HELL YES!
Anyway, reminded me the joy that this sport brings to us when we look at it's simplicity. Let Katie be an inspiration for your season. Push yourself, but enjoy the ride.
Pumped to see what ladies do this season
