Huck Zander took his first ski run at the age of six months... in a baby carrier behind his parents’ house in Truckee, California. A year later he moved on to greater challenges by taking on the backcountry in a backpack. Huck took to screaming “More! More! Faster! Faster!” at the bottom of every pitch, inspiring his parents to transition him to self-powered descents. When he was two and a half, Huck finally tried out his own skis on his home mountain at Squaw Valley. He got five days in that year, adhering to a self-designed progression of three runs on the chair lift... no more, no less. At the bottom of the lift he was heard telling the liftie, “The ski police will never catch me because I’m wayyyy too fast!” Not surprisingly, Huck’s idol is downhill star Tommy Moe, though he is already calling Tommy out.

With a name like Huck, and a standing challenge to Tommy Moe, this budding speedster had to be dressed in a zip hoodie with ski patrol markings—so he can get on their good side from the start.
