Jerry Kernan makes being 90 look like fun. Instead of sitting in a rocking chair, Jerry is resting at the bottom of Delerium Dive at Sunshine Village, looking back up at the impressive face he has just skied. It’s far from the first time Jerry has skied this run, but it is the first time he (or anyone else) has skied it as a 90-year old.
North America’s only stop on the Freeride World Tour, Kicking Horse, has seen its fair share of memorable moments including Tanner Hall’s first foray onto the FWT and Yu Sasaki’s massive 25m drop off the pyramid cliff in the middle of Ozone. Last Friday, Kicking Horse welcomed the tour, and all the rest of us, with 40cm of recent snow and the sun shining.
