Don't know if this has been posted before, but this is amazing (and encouraging)!

It sure is! Very encouraging motivation to persevere and stay active and involved with what you love to do.

This is great to see. A few years ago we were out west and we saw a guy in a full red race suit type tights and a full race type helmet, flying by us on the slopes all week. Later in the week he came aboard our shuttle and removed his helmet. We started talking and he told us he was 83. He looked to have several good years of skiing left in him.

Oh oh, there goes another senior on twin tips that isn't skiing switch:newkeyboard:

 

I sure hope I am still able to ski in to my 90s.  That is just incredible!

Same here, and I'll even ski twin tips if I get that old.

Fresh Air did an interview this week with the author of a book on anti-aging science. Exercise, he says, is a hugely powerful factor in prolonging productive life.

Most senior citizens decades younger that him are being pushed around on wheelchairs in Fl. -- he's poweder skiing. Good for him! My body 57, and I 50, trained on bumps for four hours today, looks like we have a long ways to enjoy the sport.

He's Fantastic! That gives me 30 more years to work on my Level 2.
