Little Ripper 2.0

Yeti

By Yeti \ February 2 2015 \ 12 Pictures

It's not too often you come across a kid that can keep up with the adults on the mountain, but what about one that totally shreds it? Well, we found a little ripper and his name is Louis Overington. He was the 2014 IFSA (International Freeskiers Association) Under12 junior national freeskiing champion.  He lives in Salt Lake City and is on the Altabird free ride team and he rips. The previous year, we featured a nine-year-old phenom, Caden Gennerman ripping it up at Snowbird. Check out his photos here: Little Ripper. For tips on how to get the kids properly geared up for a day on the slopes, see Jodi's blog post, Mountain Mama Favorites. Fifth and Sixth graders ski or snowboard free at Utah mountain resort with Ski Utah's Fifth and Sixth Grade Passport.
