This is heartbreaking.

Bode Miller is one hell of a skier, and has been a big part of our Olympic team. His younger brother, Chelone "Chilly" Miller, also loved the slopes. He preferred to snowboard instead of skiing.

Chelone has passed away due to a seizure, according to the U.S. Snowboarding release.

He was focused on qualifying for the 2014 Sochi Olympics in snowboardcross when the seizure struck, and it appears that it has stemmed from motorcycle accident all the way back in 2005. Here's what the Ski and Snowboard Association President had to say:

"Chelone Miller was an aspiring elite athlete who had made great progress as a snowboardcross rider this past season. We are all deeply saddened at the news of his death and extend our condolences to the entire Miller family."

Condolences are definitely in order — what a tragic loss of life.

We are so sorry this happened, and wish nothing but the best for his family and friends.
