Me and my riding buddies were lucky enough to see him ride every Fri, Sat and Sun at BAKER, back in those days the ski's were to narrow to ride powder (other then the AIRBEARS) and our boards didnt have steel edges, so we only rode powder. As other people have mentioned you knew if Craig, Dano, Carter and Ranquet were up cause of the single tracks through never ridden before lines.
I was also lucky enough to get a Burton sponsor the same time as Craig, so I had my fair share of Mystery Airs, to this day (other then my marriage and kids) my biggest accomplishment was finishing 5th to Kelly's 2nd at Mt Hood, I'd finished higher in other comps but knowing that I was that close to him was/is huge (I still have that race bib hanging in my garage).
I've always told stories of Craig to guys I ride with today, the last time I seen him was in 2002 at BAKER, my buddy (who'd never met him) and I were getting ready to load chair 6, when I looked up the hill and thought this dude ripping the powder looked like Craigs style of riding and sure as shit he came over to chair 6 so I said hello and introduced him to my buddy who was star struck.
I went up to Stevens yesterday and ran across a guy on the chair riding a new Kelly, we b.s.'d for awhile then I proceeded in making some turns in memory of C.K. R.I.P. (Ride In Peace)
