Have You Seen a 6 Year Old Do This? Watch Him Shred Big Sky and Jackson Hole!

Posted by Backcountry Freeskier on

This six year old from Missoula, MT had quite the ski season. Watch him shred Montana Snowbowl, Jackson Hole, and Big Sky, MT.

Asher is usually the youngest in line on a powder day and faster than most adults on the mountain. If it snows 6" or more, the mountain is his classroom. 

Asher first put on a pair of skis at 21 months and immediately fell in love with skiing, smiling and laughing the entire time. He has been a Montana Snowbowl passholder since the age of 2 and skis 30-40 days a year. He skied off the tram at Jackson Hole at age 5 and ripped down the tram at Big Sky at age 6.

His only New Year's resolution was to "go on more ski trips." Well done Mom and Dad!
