Marko Grilc, one of the most accomplished Slovenian snowboarders, has been killed in a snowboarding accident in the Austrian ski resort of Sölden. Media reports say he was part of a film crew inspecting a site for filming as he fell and hit his head on a snow-covered rock.
This one really sucks. Loved watching him ride and film with kids.
God damn, what a bummer...
Super sad. I don't know him or much about him really, but he and his little family turned up in my Instagram feed every day. But he seemed like a pretty great role model for dads, especially dads that bring their kids into the outdoor life, and sliding on snow in particular.
RIP, I feel for his family and especially his very young kids.
