Dream dies with Bode Miller’s brother, Chelone
A mountain child, Chelone Miller was born here in a rough-hewn cabin with no plumbing or electricity next to a cascading brook on a steep bluff in the northern forest.
His parents let him roam, and the boy often disappeared in a high country of black bears and bobcats, storm-mangled woods too gnarly to navigate, and sudden snow squalls blasting over craggy ridges.
The world would come to know his big brother, Bode, as one of the greatest Alpine skiers in American history. And while Bode Miller was carving up Olympus, Chelone was deep in the White Mountains, raising himself to embrace nature’s mysteries and defy its dangers.
By the time he came out of the woods, Chelone, too, was bound for glory, as one of the world’s most daring professional snowboarders. And he was saving his best for last.
Eight years after he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a dirt bike crash on a country road in nearby Sugar Hill, Chelone — renowned for his big smile and bold spirit — was racing to join Bode, an Olympic gold medalist and two-time World Cup champion, on the US Ski and Snowboard Team for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

“That was his big dream, to compete in the Olympics with Bode,’’ Chelone’s close friend and manager Devin Azevedo said. “He was going for it.’’

Then he was gone. Three days before he was scheduled to travel last month to a glacial peak in Alaska’s remote Hoodoo Mountains for an extreme snowboarding challenge, Chelone was found dead of an apparent seizure in his mobile home — a van he had parked in a friend’s driveway in Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
He was 29, and so in love with pushing the frontiers of snowboarding — from soaring off lofty cliffs to blasting down icy mountains at more than 80 miles an hour — that it may have cost him his life.
Despite suffering a series of frightening seizures since his dirt bike crash, Chelone had spurned the medicine his doctors had prescribed to prevent the attacks, according to family and friends. He told them he never felt like himself on the drugs, that they sapped his energy, his power, his spirit.
“None of us could have made him change his lifestyle or give up his dreams so he would be safe,’’ his sister, Gennie Wren, said near their childhood home on Mount Kinsman. “It was tough because we all wanted him to do what he wanted to do, but we knew the risks.’’
Bode Miller Daughter Drowned
Olympic alpine skier Bode Miller learned of his 19-month-old daughter Emeline‘s swimming pool accident in what was no doubt the worst phone call of his life.
Orange County Fire Authority Captain Steve Concialdi tells PEOPLE Miller, 40, was not at his neighbor’s house when his daughter was found unresponsive in their pool on Saturday.
“Somebody from the scene called Bode to let him know what happened and that his child was being transported to Mission Hospital,” says Concialdi about the accident which occurred in Coto de Caza, California. It is unclear who made the call.
While Miller was not present when the accidental drowning took place, his wife, Morgan Beck Miller was just steps away inside of the home when their daughter went “missing for just a short amount of time.“
