Awesome stuff Slappy! I know the feeling well! This summer I introduced my boys (7 & 9) to downhill up at Highland, via a private day long session with Chris "greentires" Chmielewski (another story for another time), and since that day, they've been asking when we're heading back, I think I created a few monsters...
Highland Mountain is a special place, and Chris is no exception. By the afternoon of their 1st day, Chris was taking them down Happy Hour. Good stuff! For my last run that day, I rode down Happy Hour with them, and was in awe as my 7 year old rode a nice 3 foot gapper with style and no hesitation. I wish I took pictures, but was too busy having a good time.
