Kid World Cup skiing in Roldal, Norway
We were hanging in this small Norwegian town and ran into this school. It turns out it was kid "world Cup Ski" day at the school. It was awesome. The kids were divided into countries and there was an opening ceremony with flags and also with the kids singing the national anthems of the countries. Then it went into different events. There were kids jumping, kids racing, a "biathlon" that involved throwing balls at targets and a pursuit race as well. They had a stadium, sweet grooming and tons of enthusiasm. There were five year old kids who were classic skiing better than I ever will.
