On Thursday, it will have been a year since we lost our friend. Instead of playing into the sorrow of losing such an amazing person, we know the best way to honor his life and legacy is to go skiing.
We have set up two official events; one in his home mountain, Squaw, and one here in Utah. If you can make either of those, we'd love to have you by, but no matter where you are, just try to make it up on the hill in his memory.
If you're in Utah:
10 am: Meet at the Wildcat base area at Alta Ski Area
10:30 am: Go shred the Collins and Wildcat lifts all day
3:30 - 5 pm: Reception at Gold Miner's Daughter with a viewing of CR's movie segments from the VHS days all the way up to his finals run at Linecatchers last year.
9-Close: Canyon Inn, featuring DJ Knucklz. $5 cover goes to High Fives Foundation and the CR Memorial Fund, $6 pitchers
If you're in Squaw:
10 am: Meet at Olympic House - Wildflower Cookie Shop
10:30 am: Load KT-22 for a day of skiing Squaw
2-4 pm: Mamasake for CR Hour - Reign Supreme Roll and Bud bottles
7-9 pm: Moody's Dinnner and Music - $35/person
9-11:30 pm: Reggae Hour with DJ One.Truest $10/person
If you can't make it to either of these events, but would still like to make a donation to the CR Johnson Memorial fund, go to crjohnson.org and you can make a donation through that page.
