Little Rippers - Kids are Fearless on Snow

You know the drill. Crusin' down a run at your local ski hill, thinking you're all that and more...or perhaps you're not thinking anything but just crusin. All of the sudden some little ripper on skis or a snowboard comes railing past you, boosts off a wall hit and sails on by like it's second nature. It's in moments like these that I just shake my head, smile and say, "Right on kid!"

The vid below comes from the TackledBox Blog. Not really sure who this blogger is exactly but he did mention hooking up with some of the boys from Backcountry.com at the Snowbasin Demo a few weeks back so he must be a friend of the crew.

So check out this little kid with skis so small that the are barely past the binding is completely fearless. Fearless indeed.

...oh by the way, his name is Mac Malkoski. He's 4. This is his second season on chairlifts. He's as good as he is only cause he follows his 7 year old brother around the hill every weekend. Stevens Pass, WA is their hill.

Dave Graves lives in the PNW? I thought he was in Utah still. Guess I'm outta the loop.

No this isn't Dave Graves kid. Dave is the Rockies rep for us. This little rat is my kid. Dave and I work with each other, he's in Coloradical, I'm in Seattle. Home office for me, the road for Dave. We clear?

Anyway, Daron Rahlves has a contest going and I entered a remix of Mac's footy to the contest. Give the little guy some support and vote for him.
