Was watching old ski videos over the weekend, and Dave just kills it. I declare this a "Appriciate Crichton" zone, so please post any video/photo of this east coast newschool pioneer and give this guy respect.
DC is the most missed man in skiing. We all miss him and we could only wish for another Crichton segment. He was years ahead of his time. If he was still in the game he would be winning every comp from rail jam to pipe to slope to superhit. If we could only get Berman to convince him to make a 2008 comeback!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i saw him on tv a while back, not for skiing but on this program about living with crohns disease. Ive got a lot of respect for him, both for his skiing and for his ability to live a normal life with a disease that really sucks balls.
I'm in that photo wearing the white hoodie on the deck, behind me is Chris Turpin holding his skis over his head for a bit of height perspective. Haha, I thought he did this at the 2003 WSI how time fly's.
Dave was an amazing skier who killed pipe, park and urban rails. His alley-oop 5 critical over that transfer pipe gap is one of the greatest pipe tricks ever. Not to mention his segment in forward is one of the greatest jib segments ever, if not the greatest.
Dave is a super nice guy and I had the opportunity to ski with him a number of times around Ottawa. I was stoked!

east coast, right coast, *ice coast, ** green coast, whateva!
Dave was and always will be the sickest skier ever. I skiied with him at Mt. Hood like 5 years ago at Windells and there couldn't have been a nicer, more down to earth guy. Check out the interview from Level 1 they just did....congrats to Dave for keeping positive!

Conventional wisdom would have one believe that it is insane to resist this, the mightiest of empires... but what history really shows is that today's empire is tomorrow's ashes, that nothing lasts forever, and that to not resist is to acquiesce in your own oppression. The greatest form of sanity that anyone can exercise is to resist that force that is trying to repress, oppress, and fight down the human spirit. - Mumia Abu Jamal.
