    Unhappy Kasha Rigby

    Man, it's been a rough couple of days. Super sad to hear that Kasha Rigby passed away in an avalanche in Kosovo. https://euronews.al/en/snow-avalanch...an-loses-life/

    She hasn't lived in CB for 20ish years, but she was one of those people that it felt like never left. If there is a hall of fame for badass telemark skiers, she's first in line. RIP

    Weird, I hadn’t thought about her in years but just saw her in The Edge of Never a couple days ago. Sad.

    Dammit. Kasha Rigby is a name I've not heard in a couple decades, I think... she was a badass from all accounts. RIP.

    So sad

    Hadn’t seen her out skiing recently and was wondering what amazing place must be off too.

    So bummed this is how that question was answered.

    Hope her and Hilaree are teamed back up and slaying the Uber gnar in the sky.

    Same - When I saw this thread title I was thinking that's a name I haven't heard in a very long time. Vibes to her family.

    Fuck, that sucks. RIP

    That pic Trackhead posted was iconic for all tele skiers back in the day.

    Well, darn, that sucks. Been a shitty month so far for you Crested Butte folks. Hope you and Britt are doing as well as can be with all the recent horrible news for the community there.

    Damn. RIP.

    I loved watching her in the movies, so fluid. Inspiring.

    Vibes to family and friends.

    Oh no! This is turning out to be a bad year. I’ve pretty much admired and worshiped her ever since the way back three pin days. Man, this sucks.

    There's a pretty cool article about that photo and how it was the photographers first "nude" portrait. Pretty good story about Corey Rich experience shooting it.

    That photo was pretty iconic for *all* skiers, methinks. Skiers of a certain vintage, that is.

    Damn, heavy week. Like many here, she was my Tele idol and crush. Her skiing blew my mind when I was just getting into tele. That pic did the same, haha. I was still starstruck meeting her at Snowbird years later and getting to ski with her. What a beautiful, badass lady.

    The universe is poorer this week. Peace to Kasha and all who knew her.

    Damnit. Definitely a fan back in the mid-late 90's of her tele exploits. She charged. Pretty sure we had one of the above pics that she had signed hanging in the back shop of the ski shop I was tuning for..... RIP

    Here’s a short clip of her skiing in the 1993 US Extremes in Crested Butte. At the 31:45 mark.

    There’s a short interview with her around the 15 min mark too.



    Never met her but certainly looked up to this crew as an adolescent in the early 90s.

    RIP
