CR Johnson

c.r. johnson, one of our generation’s most iconic freeskiers, died yesterday at squaw valley.

in 2005, he was in a massive ski accident, was paralyzed, and had to relearn how to do everything. his drive to succeed is inspirational, for sure. in this video he talks about relearning everything, from how to swallow to how to huck.

he was a prodigy and from all accounts, a great guy. he was 26. freeskier magazine has a touching eulogy. and, in the words of c.r.:

live your life. love your life. don’t regret. live, learn, and move forward positively.

    Heartbreaking. But don’t we all want what he had – something he loved deeply? He died doing something he loved.
