Kuroda’s home mountain will pay tribute to the late freestyle skier by hosting a “run for Brayden” starting at the top of mogul course where he spent so much time.

The event is open to anyone who wishes to attend and will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 1:30 p.m. Those who plan on participating in the run are asked to meet at the top of the mogul course at least ten minutes before it starts.

After either skiing or boarding down the course or down the groomed run beside the course, Apex has planned a group photo to offer their “supportive love” to Kuroda’s parents.

Apex Mountain general manager, James Shalman is organizing the event. He offered his compassion in an online statement.

“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,” said Shalman.

”He will be sorely missed.”
