This week if you visit Snowshoe Magazine online, you will be able to read my newest story for them, Raising the Next Generation...on Snowshoes. The story was inspired by a YouTube search the other day for child skiing Vs. child snowshoeing. While there were more than 2000 results for skiing with titles ranging from “amazing three-year old skier” to “extraordinary four-year old skier,” there were only 70 results for snowshoeing - mostly consisting of gear reviews and sponsored videos for outdoor companies. Words like amazing or extraordinary were nowhere to be seen and I found no mention of a little ripper or shredder tearing up the snowshoe trails. I wondered what you would even call a kid on snowshoes. A little stomper?
I'm proud of the story that resulted and I hope you will follow the link above to read it. Below is a photo of My Little Stomper and I will be insanely proud of him in whichever sport he chooses to pursue as he grows older be it skiing or snowshoeing.
