R.I.P. Skrad

I just learned the name of the victim from today's deadly avalanche on Gobblers Knob. It was our own Skrad. Good God,I just skied with the guy yesterday, and we talked about how our 50th birthdays are both coming up on the same day later this month. This one's way too close to home. Doug, I'll miss your enthusiasm, and the hill will seem empty without you. R.I.P., my friend.

Awful news. My condolences to all family and friends.

Admin, I suspect you were up late. Your article is frank, informative and touching and is a fitting tribute to your friendship with Skrad.

Let's be careful out there.
