Julia Mancuso is a 36-year-old ski champion who took it to social media to defend a video she shared recently of her throwing her son into a bank of snow.
The skier posted the video of herself launching her one-year-old son into the deep snow. Although many people found the video to be hilarious, some were quick to point out that this is bad parenting – and the act was very dangerous.
Mancuso has now posted a behind the scenes video that shows the baby boy laughing as she threw him in the show before she quickly took him out.

The mom wrote in the caption that the boy loved it, and she wanted to share the ‘behind the scenes’ video because she received a lot of messages from people that didn’t understand the video.
“You really don’t get these conditions often and can only enjoy the fluffy softness the very next day – so yeah – I don’t think it’s a good idea to through your kid into any snow bank… but when it snows like this! It’s game on.” – she added.
The original video was posted on November 30 and it racked up more than 280k likes.
