    Courage is not the absence of fear but acting in spite of it.

    There was once a bloke named Peter Sells who offered commentary,
    I believe that there may have been occasions when he’s been called contrary.
    Though never in haste,
    He cuts to the chase,
    As he goes on his way so merry!

    Awesome day on the slopes. Hard to leave as the snow started around noon. About 10cm of fresh, fluffy powder!

    Sarah Burke struck down by bad luck at the height of her sport

    Joe O'Connor Jan 19, 2012 – 8:09 PM ET | Last Updated: Jan 19, 2012 8:27 PM ET
    Mike Ridewood/Canadian Freestyle Ski Association
    Sarah Burke in the halfpipe final at a FIS Freestyle Ski Halfpipe in Copper Mouintain, Colorado, on Dec. 9, 2011.




    Her death stings, because it is unfair, because Sarah Burke was too young and too smart and too pretty and too warm and too well-liked and too remarkable, as an athlete, to leave us so soon.
    Plug her name into Youtube and watch clips of the 29-year-old B.C. skier taking flight, blasting out of a superpipe and soaring up, up, with the blue sky as a backdrop and gravity, an earthly annoyance, as her only limit.
    Ms. Burke twists. Twirls. Flips. She makes us gasp, and it is amazing to see, especially now, knowing that every clip is a reminder and a memorial to a gifted skier who pushed the boundaries of her sport.

    Pushed them so hard and so far that Ms. Burke won four X-game titles, five World Cups and a world championship. She is the reason why the Olympic old boys club added women’s ski halfpipe to the program for Sochi 2014.

    Ms. Burke was doing her thing, being amazing and soaring, when bad luck struck her down. Slamming her to the snow in Park City Utah on Jan. 10, rupturing an artery that carries blood to the brain, triggering hemorrhaging, stopping her heart and causing irreversible brain damage.
    She died Thursday at the University of Utah Hospital.
    Of course, we know what happens next, because it always happens next: Ms. Burke’s tragic death will, somehow, if we allow it to, turn into something that it isn’t.
    But here is the thing: Extreme sports are labelled extreme for a reason. Going bigger and jumping farther and pushing limits involve a measure of risk. Shooting for the stars always does.
    And it is not a deadly risk, not in all but the most freakish of instances, circumstances like the one that has left us contemplating Sarah Burke’s ghost.
    How will she haunt us? What might she say? That she died doing something she loved? That people die every day on the job?
    Police officers get shot. Pilots crash. Journalists are killed in war zones. Executives expire at their desks. There is risk in everything we do and randomness in that risk, making this life of ours a whirling game of unforeseeable chance where, every so often, the roulette wheel stops spinning and your number unexpectedly comes up.
    This is not a safety issue. This is a life issue. So why don’t we look at Sarah Burke’s short life and see what it can teach us about living?

    Sarah Burke poses with her gold medal after winning the Women's Skiing Superpipe at Winter X Games 13 on Buttermilk Mountain in 2009.




    When she was a little girl her father, Gordon, promised her he would mortgage everything so she could ski. He would take her to the slopes where a young girl with big dreams watched the boys competing in big air competitions — boys she knew she could beat — and where she wondered: why not me?
    Why not girls?
    It is a question Olympic organizers could not answer.
    There are other lessons: a short Ski Channel documentary featuring Ms. Burke and her extreme sports star husband, and childhood sweetheart, Rory Bushfield.
    In it we see the couple sitting in the back of a cab, telling their story, talking about a great love and a life together in the mountains.
    “It is what our lives are, being on the hill, and there is a reason for that,” Ms. Burke says. “It is where we met, where we play, where we live and hopefully where we will die.”
    Amen.
