“finding the perfect spot”


$ 9,500.00 CAD

Aaaaaahh, to be young again! I was thinking back to when days were just days to spend having as much fun as possible. The young fellow is adventurous and is willing to try anything - at least once! He pulls his brand-new kamatik that he and his father put together. It was made of very light wood, with nice smooth runners on the skis. He knew it was ready to try out on the hill behind the community.

He has walked to a point on the hill where there is a rock perfectly shaped for taking jumps off. He stands at the edge, hoping he is “finding the perfect spot” from which to make his first jump - and to land without hitting anything below. He smiles, knowing this is going to be a great day for fun.
