    What happened at Berthound Pass yesterday?

    Read something about a dude attempting to jump the road and landed on the guard rail.

    Sounds horrible. Jesus.

    RIP

    Yeah. Fucking awful. Not wanting to spread [potential] misinformation here but that Reddit thread names names. I couldn’t confirm any of it in the media. If it’s truly that dude, it looks like he was a 21 YO CU student from WP and he ran some qualifying runs for the FWT.

    Goddamnit. RIP young ripper.

    I removed the name. Sorry. Not thinking straight. Best to let it be released via official change before posting in on a public fourm.

    Name has been confirmed on snowbrains. I'm not publishing it until it's on an official source.

    I was hanging out last night with people close to him who found out just as we got together. Made things pretty sober. So awful. So young.

    Many of those people are in the friend group of many of my friends kids. He was a comp center coach. We are still a pretty tight community around here and the comp center is a pretty big part of the ski culture.

    It's been a pretty rough week in the Fraser Valley.

    He’s a dick, but does it need moderation?

    It's one thing to have a different opinion, it's different to show up and shit on someone you don't know.

    To call that an accident is disingenuous, I think most would agree.

    Perhaps, but everyone (besides you) would agree that this is not the appropriate venue to air that hot take

    Cletus: Duly noted.
