Chelone Miller, the 29-year-old brother of skiing star Bodie Miller, died on Sunday evening. According to a release from U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the death was due to an apparent seizure that stemmed from a 2005 motorcycle accident.

Chelone was an accomplished snowboarder and skier. He was focused on making the 2014 Olympics in snowboardcross, a type of snowboard racing over a course. His dream was gaining momentum, as he took fourth at the U.S. Grand Prix and then scored an overall win at an event in early March.

Nicknamed "Chilly," Chelone also showed off his snowboarding skills in a Jeep commercial.

He was remembered fondly by skiing officials.

“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,” said U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Bill Marolt.
