Xavier on Superstar, his favorite trail at Killington.  Late March.  How many 5-year old can ski this!
To say that Xavier loves the bumps is an understatement.

Of course mom and dad forget his ski gloves, so here he is skiing with just glove liners protecting his hand.

Killington, Vermont, Glades area.  Early April, 2002.  Learning to use poles.   I don't think I (dad) used poles since xavier started skiing at 2;  I don't miss using poles, actually.

Killington, Vermont, October, 2002.  Yes, October!  The left pic is from Killington Peak, the right pic is from the glades area.  Look at that snow!  First time in Killington's 45 year history that they had top-to-bottom skiing in October.  The skiing was great!  We skied from October 26, 2002, to May 1, 2003 (8 out of 12 months).  On May 1, both xavier and dad raced at Killington's May Day Slalom race on Superstar.
