    I never connected that Pow11 was Toby S. I'm sure I had a beer with him at some point, we have so many mutual friends and I've heard his name many times over the years. Really sad to hear this.

    So is the official cause of death a car accident? I'm really confused on what happened.

    Just so it is in this thread as well. This is all 2nd hand but from a friend who helped search. He crashed his truck driving way too fast off a logging road into a lake. He was able to get out. Most likely pretty injured. Then scrambled up a very steep and cliffy hillside. Probably disoriented. Fell. Broken neck.

    I was able to dig up this article but it doesn't say very much: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...alin-1.6181237

    A nice article in the Whistler Newspaper.
    "a really dry sense of humor".... thats an understatement.

    Based on the situation not much more details will be released.

    Powder11 RIP

    Think I first met him in the lift line, as ya do w most good people. We’d always find ourselves at the same chairs waiting for em to crack. Shared lots of good times.
    Only hooked up a few times off the resort, but damn those days were good.

    A few years later I was looking for someone to join on a bike heli drop in the N Duffey.
    Tried a lot of people but Toby was one of only 2 who was keen to try and get off a big shale sloped peak that I though would go but wasn’t sure.
    Had an awesome day

    Lately I was more likely to see him in the sled trailhead but we’d still share great days on the chair.


    RIP

    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    Great Post !
    He was always up for an adventure. JM you were smart to call him when you had a crazy objective.

    Sad news. He posted some great stuff here way back when. That’s a great shot of him smiling with the mountain in the background.

    Fuck me, I'm rarely on here nowadays but I met Toby up at Red, crashing with Rusty Nails at his place (where is that guy btw?). We even had a few beers at my place outside DC waaaayyyyy back when he and his then wife were out this way for work I think.

    Good dude. Really sorry to hear this, even if it's been at least 15 yrs since I saw him.

    So sorry to hear this news. I skied with Toby a few time here in Vermont back in the day. He was a good guy and a head charger. Rest easy Toby.

    Ah fuck. Condolences to all who knew him. Haven't been here much lately but remember his screen name as one whose posts I'd always check out. May you RIP, Powder11.
