Known for his huge airs, progressive style, and genuine love for the mountains, professional snowboarder Chelone “Chilly” Miller continuously pushed the boundaries of snowboarding. Tragically, Chelone’s life story was unexpectedly concluded after passing away on April 7, 2013 from an epileptic seizure.
In 2005, Chelone was in a serious dirt bike accident, leaving him in a coma for 11 days. Subsequently, he had experienced multiple seizures throughout his long recovery. Despite the tribulations of Chelone, he embraced life and continued to pursue his passion of sports, regardless of the risk.
The heartbreak was felt around the world today as the Miller family mourns the loss of a beloved son, brother and friend.
“He loved life so much; it made him easy to love and easy to be around,” Bode told The Ski Channel soon after the horrible news settled in. “I’m going to miss him a lot…”
Chelone and his brother Bode Miller had starred in a Ski Channel Film “The Story.” The Ski Channel produced a moving video tribute to “Chilly” Miller.
