Today the news has broken that one of our sport’s most respected, considered and discerning voices has gone silent. For nearly two decades, Gerhard Gross has worn many toques as a diehard shredder. Like most media icons, Gerhard’s path began as an aspiring pro bagging covers in the Canadian backcountry alongside his Gnarcore cronies. Gross’s passion for snowboarding motivated him to transition into the industry rather than hang up the boots entirely.
After nearly two years of treatments and battling to beat cancer, Gerhard Gross passed away on the evening of August 14th, 2018. Snowboarder Magazine offers our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed both on and off hill. p: @gabe_lheureux
