The New York Times published a touching article remembering Doug Coombs 10 years after his death.

"On Sunday, 10 years after the death of the extreme skier and mountain guide Doug Coombs, his friends will gather on the slopes of La Grave, France, a skiing mecca 50 miles east of Grenoble. Above the run where he perished, they will place a plaque that reads: 'Pioneer of the Chugach. King of the steeps. He made it look easy.'"
