Jim Franklin (Jimmer) died Sept 14th while skiing in Las Lenas Argentina. He did not die from a reckless stunt, it was a stupid accident. We bow our heads to Jim who died representing and pushing the limits of the sport we all love.
A memorial for Jim was created the 16th of Sept and we have received so much great feedback from all around the world. I would like to thank everyone for all their kind and supportive words. Jim would want us to keep going and keep holding up the sport he loved so much. I know Jim will be there with us when the snow flies on the first chair of the season. Jim, you will always be a legend in our minds. We all wish you deep powder, steep lines, and great adventures forever.
Update... On Sept 14th 2005 John and Jay Franklin returned to the Las Lenas backcountry to pay respects to Jim and deliver a granite plaque. Read More
