    Thanks for the update. Sounds like he was living the dream what with skiing and family. What more do you need?

    Itís good to hear the family isnít lacking financially at this point. I guess that makes sense if they were able to live, run businesses, and raise kids in Jackson in the first place.

    Still, I think the widow should be made aware that there are some people who would like to honor his memory with a donation. Perhaps she has a favorite charity?

    Thanks for the update. Glad to hear all of the family is doing well, or as well as can be expected.

    As a road cyclist who logs a few thousand miles every year for the past thirty, I was really curious how things went down. That type of accident can take you out whether you are in a car or on a bike.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    That's not a bad idea at all. Let me run something past Christy before we launch though. I think she'd be down for that.
    Will let you know.

    Thank you again, my friends, for all the positive Irie vibes.

    Djongo, please make a paypal.

    I want to get rid of some shit, don’t want the money. If they want it, great.
    If they want you to donate to Coombs charity or newt charity, or whatever pay it forward.

    Once the dust settles, they might want to make their own charity to keep the Stephen stoke going. In the meantime the money can chill in The PayPal

    You seem like the most connected and motivated to make this happen. I need to get rid of clothing, bindings, skis, and kid stuff.

    I received the printout from skiJ and took it over to Christy.
    She was very thankful and explained to me that the Forum was almost entirely Stephen's thing and that they were all otherwise unconnected to it/us.

    This will give her an opportunity to feel the love he was a part of 'round here. She is one of the coolest chicks you could meet, just likes to keep it real, on the DL and low tech.

    The family may have never known the vibe, and that would have been a shame.

    Thanks everyone, and especially skiJ.

    Lots to learn from a guy like him, respeks my brother.

    Thank you, Dj...


    Thank you, Stephen -

    I feel Stephen's vibe as I sit here on the first cool ( Temperature) day of late Summer on the U.p. ;

    the appreciation and affection for Stephen expressed in these pages is deeply moving to me - Thank you, magg.s and maggettes ! !!!


    With love, tj

    SkiJ keeps it real around here, and for that I am thankful.

    We have are little interwebs tussles that occasionally get a bit overblown, but deep down the vast majority who hang around this insane corner of cyberspace are real people with real feelings for each other. Thank you SkiJ and DJ for reminding us of what is important.

    I am sorry it takes a tragedy to occasional remind us all of this.

    Peace to all.

    Looks like Skiing-in-Jackson's son is living at the Mission - https://www.jhnewsandguide.com/news/...003088236.html

    Hopefully his sailboat dreams come true.

    Was there ever a Gofundme for the fam?

    No, they were not really down for that.

    Blaze is a great kid who's been cast adrift a little bit. I do a lot of work for the Mission and will be putting in a good word for the boy.

    He's a 1% skier too, better than almost everyone. His sister Damaris rips the village daily, leaving all the boys behind.

    Ooof. Sounds like he is driven and focused though, that will go a long way.

    After reading that I scrolled down and saw the sad story about Raj, shitty.

    I never met Stephen IRL but had several friendly online conversations with him. He mailed me a couple Jackson Hole stickers for no particular reason once. Still can't believe he's gone.. I remember the photos of those kids counting Halloween Butterfinger bars still in costumes..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
