PARK CITY, Utah — Obituary: Charlie Scott, an affectionate local that served as assistant Park & Pipe Regional Team coach for Park City Ski & Snowboard after becoming a junior national champion in slopestyle skiing, passed away last week after an accident at Park City Mountain. He was 21.
“He was seriously one of the kindest,” said Chris “Hatch” Haslock, the Freeski director for PCSS.
“He brought this stoke, and he brought this smile with him everywhere he went. From the first day he showed up to practice… this guy, he’s got an attitude, and it’s a really good one.”
Hatch said Scott worked his way up from average athlete to become a 2017 Junior National Champion. After that season, Scott felt he wanted to transfer over to coaching. “That’s exactly the kind of attitude we want to bring in,” Hatch said. “What surprised me, was how many of our athletes he impacted.”
He said that Scott’s energy would overflow outside of his training group. On days when people needed a boost in the gym, Charlie was there.
A tribute event was held on Tuesday night. Scott’s family, his girlfriend, and one of his best friends gathered with members of PCSS to tell their stories of him and pay tribute.
Live the dream EVERY day.
And most of all be Tru
— in memory of Charlie Scott
In lieu of flowers, Charlie’s family is asking those wishing to celebrate his passionate stoke for PCSS and the freeski community, to consider a donation to PCSS in his memory.
