Hi All! Welcome to the blog! Explore the page, interact with the page and most importantly read about the people who have made freeskiing the way it is today. Please feel free to write your thoughts so I can add them to the page! RIP FREESKIERS...
Starting this blog back at the beginning of February, initially as a University set project has now grown into something that is somewhat enjoyable and now something I would like to continue to blog about. The idea of the blog was based on my passion for skiing and the realisation of many top name athletes losing their life to the sport but no central area to embrace them. It also something that is based around a strong following audience, however constricted to a more specific idea (death in skiing) that will differentiate the blog from other more standard blogs (Just Skiing) and websites. So I started with simple posts capturing part of the athlete’s lives but since grown into other aspects of the blog and trying to ever expand. (This post is intended for my University work if you are interested in how my journey has gone please continue…)
Here are the links to some of the foundations that are dedicated to free-skiers who have died recently, these charities go along way to helping injured athletes, supporting athletes or bringing new things to this ever-growing sport.
There are plenty others out there and i’ll add any more that I come across. Write me a comment if you want to add your own.
