So sad sad sad sad sad.  RIP Sarah and prayers, thoughts, love, peace to all her family, friends and fans.  She is/was so talented and sometimes they make it look so easy to do the supremely difficult things they do, that its easy to forget how high the stakes are.  She showed so many skiers (men and women) what the art of the possible is when you combine talent, hard-work and fearlessness.  Inspiration for sure.

So sad. :(


Apparently her insurance didn't cover her medical costs and her family is looking at over $500K in medical costs as a result. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2012/01/20/bc-sarah-burke-medical-fees.html

I have S.B. '82-'12 R.I.P on the back of my helmet now, it will stay that way for the rest of the season. It is incredible to see the outpouring of sympathy from skiers and non-skiers alike. It stands testament to the amazing person that she was.

It is outstanding work. We should feature it on the front page. Espn, ought to use it for an X games tribute to Sarah to be shown there and on tv. It really is that good.

Bravo Zachary Moxley.


As for the medical bills, well that's our brilliant system. If she'd been in Canada it wouldn't be an issue.

I never met Sarah, although I was supposed to. She had been scheduled to work a clinic in the terrain park at Blue Mountain (Collingwood, Ontario), where I was working in the Safety Centre. Sadly it was a very green January and the clinic had to be cancelled. Still, I've followed her career and marvelled not only at her string of awards and film credits, but also the attitude to constantly push the sport forward to the benefit of men and women alike. Sarah grew up in Midland, not far from here, so I guess you could call her a local hero. Today I went skiing and despite the gloom, the cold and the constant bombardment of the snow guns, I managed to enjoy myself on our little hill .... a hill not unlike the one Sarah learned on. I never met Sarah, but today with thoughts of her on my mind, I managed a smile. I think she would like that.



Condolences to her family, and those lucky enough to have been close to her. She will be missed.
