Definitive answer to the question we often get here on EpicSki: How young can I start my child skiing?
Great vid, loved the kid in the terrain park and of course as a Canadian, I loved the hockey stick.
Yeah, I think most of that was filmed when he was 2, maybe a few clips at 22 months or something, according to comments. Still, very impressive strength and control over those little legs.
We started our guy at 2-1/2. Worked out great because a local hill took kids that young for 1-hr lessons, then into the daycare for an hour. We'd buy a three-hour ticket so we would ski and extra hour after daycare.13 years later, he mostly jumps like this:
TWO MINUTES FOR HOOKING!!!! Haha, just kidding. Made him carry his own gear too! I didn't have the patience for that. Takes 20 minutes longer to get to the lifts if you make a kid that small do everything themselves.
Go-that-way turns at 18 months. Not a bad way to start...
I didn't ski until the ripe old age of 4, but I don't remember much before that anyway, and my own kids will be the same.
I think they fall on their heads more often when in terrain that's "above their heads", so to speak, like boxes...
