Kid Stoke: My little Grom ripper

My boy is now 3 years old and has learned to ski really well. I am so proud of him. On his way to ski bumming for food. Video of us skiing at Sunlight Mountain Resort. Also, Jimmy D & I making some turns at Vail this early season.

He's doing great!  It takes time and dedication on the parent's part to get them really going.  Good job. Now get that easy wedge bungee cord off his skis!  One of my kids got addicted to that thing and started relying on it way too much.  We had the hardest time getting him to ski without it.  He just didn't want to ski without it.

Thanks for the advice. That's what I was kinda thinking.

Nice video, the little guy looks like he's really having fun! Props to you for putting in the considerable effort.

 

Our three year old has been on skis for a while, but lacks the maturity to be let loose on the slopes.  She's ultra competitive and wants to race everyone down the mountain.  She does a lot better skiing on our property without the crowds and steeper slopes.

Looking good.

Next pair of skis move the bindings towards the tip so there's more tail. Most young kids are mounted so far back the only move is a wedge. That is, they move their leg, even just steering, and it pushes the tail out. Mounting more "normally" will promote parallel skiing. If the shop is quesy, get another shop. There's no science to where those marks are placed on adult skis let alone kids skis. On kids it seems the less tail the better as far as their concerned.
