We will miss you, Kyle!

Our American freeride athlete falls victim to an tragic avalanche accident in Japan.

On Sunday we lost our friend, family member and role model!⁠

Our beloved South Lake Tahoe skier Kyle Smaine became a victim of an avalanche in the central region of Nagano, Japan. The former freestyle world champion was known for his positivity, his incredibly friendly nature and his endless loyalty!⁠

For us at Fischer, he was more than an athlete. He has contributed a lot with his ideas and drive to bring freeride and freestyle to where it is now and has inspired and empowered us all with his commitment and his inspiring being.⁠

Kyle, we will miss your energy and our hearts are with your loved ones 🤍🕊️⁠
