Penticton freestyle skier Brayden Kuroda has died.

Freestyle Canada announced late yesterday that National NextGen Mogul Team athlete Brayden Kuroda passed away suddenly on Feb. 17. He was 19.

“Brayden was a very special young man. His infectious smile and passion for the sport of Freestyle skiing inspired our community. He always found time to give back, underscoring how important it was to him personally to be a good role model on and off the hill and to encourage young athletes to reach their goals,” Freestyle Canada said in announcing Brayden’s death.

Freestyle Canada also noted Brayden’s work ethic, passion and natural talent in becoming the third highest Canadian on home soil at the World Cup in Calgary recently.

“The hearts, thoughts, and prayers of our entire community go out to Brayden’s team mates, friends and family - most particularly Ken and Berva Kuroda, his ever proud mother and father,” Freestyle Canada said.

“Our deepest condolences to Berva and Kenni Kuroda and all of their friends and family as well as everyone in our freestyle community who were touched by Brayden Kuroda. He will be sorely missed,” Apex Mountain Resort manager James Shalman said in a social media message last night, Feb. 18.
