January, 2007. Copper Mountain, AM slopestyle warm-up, middle line, third hit, about 25' table, fairly small jump maybe 3-4' wedge. This is when Copper refused to have landings, they were all so short. A kid from Crested Butte, Asher Crank, 17 years old, over shot the landing with a switch cork 5 (if I recall) landed on his head/shoulder. I had my entire group (was FS instructor for Choppers) standing on the table of the big line near the judging stand, back when the big line was on the skiers right. He died in transit after they landed the helicopter in the park.
I've seen worse injuries in terms of overall bodily harm, but that's the only one that resulted in death I've actually seen skiing. Sobering experience when I thought about some of the back slaps, wash-outs, and minor injuries I'd had in my younger years overshooting. (Nothing compared to Dumont, sweet Jesus, hate that clip...)
Found some news about it, I didn't know him, this is where I found his name.
