Amazing. Shows what early training and nurture can produce.

I suspect there are thousands of Colorado 9 and 10 year olds who could easily do this if their parents had the time and money to fly them around the world...

Since all she technically has to do to complete skiing on a continent is ski 5 feet down snow once on each continent, this is more a record on how her parents had that time and money. Shes a lucky girl.

What a great accomplishment for a kid! Took some perseverance and a bit of training, great to see kids do things like this vs. staying glued to a video screen. You go girl, indeed!!

While really cool and I'm sure many fun adventures, I don't think I would really consider it a world record. Maybe a world record for parents who are wealthy enough and have enough time to fly you around the world on amazing ski trips. Good for her anyway!

What a lucky girl! I'm sure she can ski and mountaineer and its an accomplishment. But who can pay for trips to all 7 continents....
My daughter was a ski mountaineer at age 6 and a rock climber early on, just since we never left the kids at home.
She was the youngest child to climb the highest land mass peak in iceland (at 6; the last youngest kid was 8 and a boy).
Hopefully the kid in the article will keep on climbing....
