First Ski Jump

Helmet cam video of a 10-year-old girl named Zia trying her first ski jump at the Olympic Park in Utah is getting a ton of views on YouTube.  

The huge ramp she had to ski down was more intimidating than the actual jump . . . which wasn’t that huge.  But the build-up . . . and how nervous she was . . . are the reason it has over 800,000 hits.

Her mom posted the video, and she probably said it best.  Quote, “It was a very honest portrayal of [someone] experiencing something huge.  A lot of people can identify with it.”  You really end up pulling for her as she builds her confidence.
