Daily Viral: Watch this 11 year-old absolutely shred Jackson Hole like a boss

CultureNovember 09, 2018

What were you doing at 11 years-old? Probably tearing the crust off your sandwich and asking mom for another glass of warm milk. Not the case with Kai Jones. The 11 year-old with the cajones of a veteran freeskier takes on the powdery slopes of Jackson Hole like no other kid, teenager, adult or grizzly bear. Sure he can't get into a PG-13 movie or isn't tall enough to ride Space Mountain but that doesn't matter considering the kid hucks cliffs that just looking at them makes us have to change our underwear. 

Teton Gravity Research, one of the better ski film companies out there, put together this video so while you sit in front of a computer wondering when the bagel bites will be ready from the microwave, you can fanboy out over the unbelievable talent of this young buck. It's our daily viral and another reason we will never go pro in skiing.
