Ski Bunny – Short Film

Autumn’s been coming to Kirkwood since she was four months old. She knows the inside of the Red Cliffs Day Lodge as well as any local. Last year, we put her on skis for the first time and pulled her around the flats to try “skiing” for the first time. This year, we decided she was ready for something more. This past weekend, we hit Chair 9 at Kirkwood. She loved it. Four runs in a row—pretty good for her first outing. I’m sure it won’t be long before she’s booting up 99 Steps or hucking the mandatory air at the bottom of Heart Chute. Check out the video below. We feature one of Autumn’s favorite songs on the soundtrack and the post-run interview is pretty great.

    What a treat !! !! Thanks so much for sharing this classic moment in Autumn’s life. I love her comment: What color are your skis? They are kind of white right now. I bet next year she will actually be sking on her own. Give her another 5 years and she will be skiing circles around Mom and Dad !! What’s next — Hospital air on a snowboard !! !!
