This week, our gear of the week is based on merit AND message. As a memorial to CR Johnson, and a way to raise money for the non-profit High Fives Foundation, Smith and 4FRNT have put together a limited edition set-up.
Matt Sterbenz, of 4FRNT, said the CR’s sponsors, as well as his family, wanted a way to memorialize his love of the spot, and give skiers a way to hold on to a piece of his spirit. The package includes 4FRNT CRJ memorial skis, based on his 09/10 pro model, and a Smith CRJ memorial Maze helmet and I/O goggle. It’s only for sale through Porters Tahoe.
All of the proceeds from the package go to the CRJ Memorial Fund, a part of the Tahoe-based High Fives Foundation, which will set up a scholarship in CR’s name.
