Big up George Jedenoff, the world’s oldest living skier at 105

105 years ago, the First World War was still happening, Chicago White Sox won the World Series, and George Jedenoff was born. Who? Only the world’s oldest living skier!

“I’ve been able to ski consistently for 61 years, including a few runs this year at Sugar Bowl, but I can no longer ski at my favourite resorts in Utah because I can’t handle the altitude. I still do my 45 minutes of exercise every morning to keep limber, and that helps my mind, too,” he told Stanford’s journal in July last year, after turning 104.

I can’t imagine living that long, let alone skiing at that age! I commend his physical and mental strength and may it continue.
