P-boYes, unfortunately he did pass away October 12th. He was a very close friend of mine here in his hometown. How did you hear about it?

hey, man, i'm sorry for your loss. Nick was really a hell of a skier. the dude could spin and flip better than most. and he was a real personality - no one could tame him, and he kept it fresh.
i was lucky to work with him back in the early PBP days.
i saw a post back when Jon McMurray died a month ago, suggesting that we had just lost Nick Mercon in the same week. really sucks.
RIP. Guatamalen Persuader is an absolute ski cult classic, and will never be out-done.
