Got the news yesterday from Swanny. My Heart stopped. Wade was careful, Wade knew what lurks beneath. Great Guy, sorry to hear He is no longer here. He will be greatly missed.

Great Organizer who put together one hell of an event. I can easily say without Wade I would have never saw Rogers Pass

Rest in Peace

I have met very few people who get after it in the mountains as much as Treepilot did. His dedication to his personal splitboarding followed by his dedication to expanding the sport in Western Canada and beyond was commendable.

Rest in Peace, Wade.

Wade met up with me at Kootenay Pass back in 2008/9, kindly volunteered a place to stay nearby, and bought me dinner to boot! He was a truly generous guy. The next time I see you, buddy, we'll both be riding endless powder lines and I'll get you back for a good meal and frosty brew. Thanks for contributing to the splitboard community all these years...

Condolences to your family and community,
Patrick

So sad, such shocking news. I only knew Wade through the forum, but like many of you felt a bond through his beautiful images and inspiring words.

Thoughts and prayers out to his family and friends...RIP Treepilot!

Should we start up a memorial fund? Wade had two kids, and Im sure they could use some help. We can get in contact with the Canadian Avalanche Association to find out where we can send it.

I will also see if I can find something already going

If anyone knows the family, please pass along information on the Ian Fund.

ianfund.org is a resource for the families of avalanche victims. "All donations help benefit children and families who have lost loved ones in avalanche tragedies."

This goes for anyone else who might be in the same situation.

Also, please feel free to donate to the fund. This organization was started by some of the families of the victims of the Sheep Creek avalanche accident.
