Colin Flynn: A Tribute to A Life Taken Too Soon

published Jan 2016 - 7,928 views

On August 29th, my Friend Colin Flynn passed away in a tragic car accident in Towanda, Pennsylvania. Colin was an 18 year old young man who just graduated high school and had a very bright future ahead of him. He possessed unique athletic abilities that most were envious of and was an all around great person that life was taken simply too soon.

Over the last three seasons, I skied with my friend Colin religiously almost every weekend at Greek Peak Mountain Resort. Colin was always an unbelievable athlete who made his presence known and was quite frankly a hell of a guy. He would always push me to progress to learning new tricks and variations that I didn't even know I was capable of. I often reflect on the numerous times I would say to him on any given weekend, "You know, I don't know exactly where I will be skiing next year, but I just want to let you know these have been some of the best days of my life."

As a tribute to my friend Colin, I created a video with all of the shots I have accumulated over the past few seasons riding with Colin that really captures how great of an athlete he was. Please pay your respects to my dear friend by watching this video, commenting below, and sharing with others who would be interested in this story. Ski in peace & thanks for the memories.
