Have You Seen This? 2-year-old's first powder day

THE SLOPES — As I understand it, every avid skier remembers his first epic powder day.

In fact, I’ve heard it compared to an otherworldly experience that can’t quite be described unless you’re on the slopes yourself. (Since I’ll never be on the slopes myself, I’ll gladly take any ski buff’s word for it.)

A 2-year-old from Ontario, Canada, who is lovingly called Hankster, recently had his first powder day. Even though he might not remember the rush of cutting his first powder, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t thoroughly enjoying himself.

In the video, Hankster takes each gentle slope and turn with ease. In fact, it appears he’s not putting even one iota of effort into the proceedings. He’s an extremely cool and nonchalant customer, and he’s probably skiing better than many skiers reading this.

It’s an unbelievably adorable watch that is made even better because the Hankster seems more interested in eating snow than skiing it. Every time the camera cuts to his face, his little paw is at his mouth to get one more delicious taste of freshly fallen snow. (Now that’s something I can relate to.)

In the video comments, Hankster’s dad posted that any proceeds made from the YouTube views on this video will go to Hankster’s college fund. To see more from Hankster and his dad, visit the YouTube channel TheHowtoDad.
