It's difficult to put into words what the world lost yesterday in the passing of C.R. Johnson, who at the age of 26 succumbed to injuries sustained in a fall at his home resort of Squaw Valley, CA. Beyond being a good friend to Redbullskiing.com and an amazing athlete, C.R. embodied what it meant to be a genuine person. I've never had the pleasure of knowing someone who was as friendly, approachable, humble, and positive as C.R. was. He was that rare kind of person who comes through your life and leaves you a better human being because of it. Our thoughts go out to C.R.'s family, friends, and the ski community as whole. We miss you terribly, C.R. Thank you for the time you granted us and the things you taught us we will never forget.
