Damn, that sucks. Too many deaths lately... Rest in peace dude.
so sorry man
I'm so sorry to hear this, RIP, plus so much vibes to his family and friends.
I was at Jackson today and saw him lying on the ground and like 9 patrollers sorrounding him. I thought it had just happened. Basically he was like 25 ft or so down from a catwalk and nearby, maybe 5 or so feet below the catwalk was a skinny tree stump thing that was about 4 or 5 feet tall. He must of tried to tap the tree stump or just launched off the catwalk without seeing the tree and somehow hit his head. Whats strange is that it seems to be a pretty high traffic area and there isn't too many trees or anything else nearby. Then again its been pretty foggy/poor visibility up there today and yesterday.
Hopefully this serves as a reminder to always ski with a partner and to always wear a helmet (not sure if he was wearing one or not).
