Yeah, the Carl Skoog accident was all over TGR, TTIPS, and a few other sites days ago. Really sad. The guy had taken some of the most amazing photos.

RIP

Wow. That really sucks. The Skoog brothers are/were way strong skiers and Carl took many fantastic photos. If it can happen to him...

Anyways, this is not the safest sport. The guy lived life on his own terms, which is much more of an accomplishment than mundanely surviving until you die of some degenerative disease. My condolences to his brother and his family and friends, it is always brutal to lose someone like this. Here's to Carl's memory and his legacy.
