    Damn, sad news. The dude had some serious demons and was one hell of a friend.

    Sad end to an up and down life. Still love to watch the old segments of him riding spines in AK like no one had ever done before. RIP Nobis.

    Well that fuckin' sucks. It was always fun skiing near him at Dynastar events. He jumped over my head once at Snowbird.

    RIP Noby

    I skied past him at Snowbasin once over a decade ago. I stared at him like he was a celeb in line behind me as he was a movie star to me at the time. Clearly we werenít racing. Really sad to hear this. Obviously being an outstanding ski talent doesnít mean you donít have other personal challenges that are much harder for you. RIP.

    I'd say being an outstanding ski talent at a young age can stack the deck against you. Peaking at 22 is a tough row to hoe. Never been much money in the Freeskiing side and it's just as hard on the body. Couple that with the hard party habit and...

    Sad that he couldn't find his way in post ski-star life.
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Very sad news. Thoughts to family and friends. Addiction is a horrible disease.

    I remember seeing him in the tgr video posted above. Absolutely ripped. Very inspiring.

    RIP Nobis

    Some of you may remember he was a coach at the first Gordy ski camp. I attended that
    camp and was in awe of the technical power Nobis possessed. Without question, the strongest
    skier I ever skied with.

    The mugshots tell the unfortunate story, sad to see such a decline and ultimately untimely death.

    Some of us might remember he was at the inaugural Gordy Camp, and a fun dude to shoot the shit with. So sorry he couldn't shake the demons. Super sad. RIP J.

    Rip Nobis I remember seeing him at the Bird in the earl 2000ís and felt Star Struck. A few years later I had a full neon green north face outfit. He came up to me on the tram and we chatted about it and skiing for a bit. He always said hi to me after that. Nice guy gone to young.

    If ski companies didn't make new skis every year I wouldn't have to get new skis every year.
