Late this February while I was watching the Winter Olympics I heard the sad news of the death of free skiing phenom CR Johnson. CR died while skiing in his backyard, doing what he loved and that is something to be celebrated for sure. I was fortunate enough to hang out with CR in Aspen a couple of years back while shooting the XGames and the Smith team riders. CR stuck out in my mind! He was profoundly humble and seemed mature well beyond his years.
