Why We Ski: Kids Who Rip

Why We Ski: Kids Who Rip

Features
posted: 02/02/2004

In the words of Stein Eriksen, "Things should be simple and beautiful." He must have said that after watching young children ski. Have you ever seen a 3-foot-7-inch skier rip perfect train-track turns down corduroy? Or fall down during a powder day and get lost, laughing, in the snow? Kids ski without complications: They may learn skills from adults, but it's their unspoiled sense of wonder and innocent optimism that lead them up and down the mountain. They ski because it feels good. They head to the slopes to play. And when they connect skills with play, they ski faster and better for the simple pleasure of skiing. As an adult—and especially as a parent— it's a beautiful thing to watch.
