    FUCK!!! All over again. Goodbye CR.

    I don't have all the details, but we lost another inspirational, iconic figure and dear friend today: C.R. Johnson. He tumbled down Light Towers at Squaw. He was such a good kid, and what he came back from with his previous head injury showed the utmost in courage and perseverance. God damn it. I feel for his family who already thought they lost him once.

    We love you, CR, and I'm glad I saw you this morning one last time...
    or don't

    Dude. So tragic. Feeling for the Squaw family once again. I always admired CR's will to live and live well. Thoughts and prayers to friends and family.
