This is what it's all about. It's the kids. This is what keeps the sport exciting. This is where I came from. If there is anything that I can do to get the little kids excited, I mean, it helps me at the end of the day.
The little kid's got the drive, the heart and the desire that you need to be a successful ski racer OR just have fun skiing the rest of your life. It reminds me of me when I was that age. Just that passion! You can see it in their eyes when they get out there skiing. They're not going to let one of the other guys be better than they are. They all push each-other, trying to jump off of everything on the mountain. They don't have a "STOP" engraved in them.
