Here ^^^^ is the link to vote for an 11 year old Squawpine kid who's got aspirations, determination and talent. Do the right thing and support a local family.
He and his brother work after school at Big Truck Hats, edit movies and may benefit later from the mentoring program at the Squaw Charter School. I'd say 'watch this space' coz you'll see a lot more of them if they get financial support.
His older brother spoke exceptionally well at TedX too.
I know what I'd be signing them up to if I was looking long term at future resort ambassadors/elite athletes on the payroll to that sector who tell mom and pop where to ski where to buy an apartment, and where to enrol the kid in programs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h11u3vtcpaY
High 5s is now posting Cody and Logan's vid on fb. http://ow.ly/lEIXx
It'll be interesting to see if SV is bright enough to sponsor future ambassadors. One tight arse hill 'supported' a rich kid for years only to find she was retained by another hill and went on to be the face of a national tv snowshow that promoted Vail Resorts to kids who tell mom and pop where tthey ski. Imagine if the kid was signed up 'for life' to the original hill, went onto the Olympics, wore the resort's logoson every tv interview, , and couldn't jump ship. and all for the cost of waived training fees and a lift pass.
snowtroopers have now noticed the kid. This kid should be sponsored and signed up by Squaw before some other place does.
