I am no sensitive individual. I have watched people die in the ER. But, I have also been a member of the freeski movement for years, before becoming an engineer (some may remember me?). After the news today, I am shaken.
I've watched, with the world, as great skiers have lost their lives skiing. I questions how one can continue to have passion for a sport that has ripped the life from legends like C.R. Johnson, Shane McConkey, Jamie Pierre, Sarah Burke and end the career of Kevin Pearce. All great people. All fantastic characters. All in 5 years. I have lost hope in a sport I use to love with my whole heart.
Do these recent deaths affect you?
