Very Sad, I hope they didn't have kids, just makes my heart hurt. What a weird year, was touring Sunday on an epic blue bird pow day and I could'nt even get stoked. All my pits yeilded scary results I've never doubted my own decisions more than this year. Thoughts and prayers.

^^^This is exactly how I've felt for most of this winter.

Very sad. I feel terrible for anyone/everyone who knows these guys. :cry:
Ski in Peace Steve and Chris.

Very sad. I really enjoyed the stoke Steve shared with the rest of us through his writings, photography, video, and general enthusiasm for the backcountry and mountains.
He will be missed by many.
Condolences to family and friends.

Right now, I am struggling to process this. Days spent with Steve were always amazing. I know Steve and Chris would want us to never forget those amazing moments in the mountains and keep riding. For me, I always want to remember Steve on those amazing trips, laughter, and love of the mountains. I am going to miss him tremendously. He was the most solid partner I have ever ridden with. Thank you Steve. "Live to Ski."

what the fuck! :cry:

I have been a lurker on tetonat.com for ever since the start. Steve's post and exploits around the Teton's showed my possibility of backcountry riding besides the boot pack up glory bowl. I check that site on a daily basis. So sad. I hate this year.

Been reading his blog for a long time now. While he was always getting after it, I always got the feeling that he was extremely careful and safe about his backcountry travel. Needless to say I was very surprised to hear of this accident. Goes to show that even the best can have a bad day out there.

On a more positive note, his trip to Antarctica blew my mind. The photos he put up on that a few years ago were so inspiring I'll never forget them:

Jeramie, thanks for sharing those old TRs.
Steve and his site are pure inspiration. It's staggering to think of the amount of people he positively impacted through his sharing of adventures.
A facebook group has been set up for Steve and Chris: http://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSteveRomeoChrisOnufer
