11-years old and riding deep pow!

By Arjen on 3 March 2014 · 1

This is Tijn Manuel, 11 jaar year old and spending around four weeks a season in Tignes. And his main activitty over there? Riding powder of course. Of course he's carrying a beacon, probe and shovel. Add an airbag and helmet to that as well and it looks like Tijn (and probably his parents as well) know what he's doing. Great job Tijn! Keep it going!

How old were you?

I was around 15 years old before I had my first 'real' powder experience. So tell us, how old were you?

    My son Joel started riding powder with Völkl Kenja womens skies at the age of 11 also. At 12 he had switched to snowboard and at 13 he added splitboarding. At 14 we did Niseko for 10 days and now at 15 we continue riding pow only with snow- and splitboards -and mother Carina of course also.
