Being a person who knew Charlie for over a 2 decades and skied with him more times than I can count, I am shocked by the report that he "lost control" on a catwalk. i know that trail...Charlie used to be a medical ski patrol man....he was one of the best skiers I knew personally,and I REALLY am in disbelief regarding the reason and cause for this tragedy. Who were the witnesses? who reported it to patrol? An expert skier DOES not just lose control on a catwalk. was he maybe trying to miss an out of control amatuer skier? did his diabetes play a factor? Not fair to report that this man died as a result of 'loss of control".

Not fair to Charlie...give us the details and the whole thing.
