We don't know about you but our skills on the snow are akin to a marauding elephant who's downed one too many pints of Bulmers on a raucous night out. So we're always impressed when we see folks half the size of us cutting a few moves on the slopes.

In the case of this mpora video, it's a pint-sized person who's setting the viral world alight with her incredible snowboarding style. The aptly-named Aspen is just 17 months old, but already she's showing the kind of natural flair and poise that holds the promise of a future Jenny Jones.

The adorable toddler was filmed ripping it up at the Burton Riglet Park in Colorado and was promptly crowned the youngest ever kid of the week by Keystone alpine resort.

Within hours of being published this week, the video racked up 86,000 hits - a hefty number for such a minuscule athlete. Take a look at the frankly awesome footage below (and book that snowboarding lesson now...).
