My youngest son tried skiing at 3, snowboarding at 4, but doesn't have the coordination to progress fast yet. He's now 5 and still working on turns.
Wow. On the hill at 3! That's cool.

I can imagine the advantage someone who starts so young would have over someone who starts in their 20's like I did. Their ceiling will be much higher.

Just turned 38 on March 3rd, & this is my 25th season.

I think it's been the best season I've ever had,

I've never gone down as much crazy shit, as I have this year.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

39, first strapped in at 37... But this is my first season in earnest. It's kind of nice not being the oldest guy having fun. All I get from my in-laws- "you need to sit down, watch tv and get fat like the rest of us".

Just turned 38 on monday, started when I was 12 but took a break for probably 8-9 years. This is season number 2 after getting back into it full force.

47, first skied around 1987 (age 19). Started boarding 1991. Definitely the best year so far, both in number of days and in what and how I ride, is this year.
