Skiers Steve Romeo and Chris Onufer died on Wednesday, March 7, in Grand Teton National Park. I didn't know Chris, but by all accounts he was one of the best—a badass skier and a true gentleman. I did know Steve, curator of popular ski blog TetonAT.com, and had the great pleasure of sharing a tiny cabin with him on a ship to Antarctica in 2009. I'll never forget his humor, humility, passion, and kind spirit. Here are a few shots of Steve I snapped from that trip.
Above, Steve drops in to the first little couloir we spied after making landfall near Cierva Cove on the Antarctic Peninsula. It was short and rocky, but moving the legs after 3 days on the Drake Passage felt great.
