A friend of the two Wisconsin skiers killed in a Colorado avalanche says the two were close buddies who loved to spend time on the slopes and mountain-biking trails.
    
Joey Kindred of Tomah says he used to go skiing with 32-year-old Justin Lentz and 34-year-old Jarrard Law. Relatives say the two Portage men were killed Saturday afternoon.
    
Kindred says Lentz and Law were kindhearted and smart, and both knew how to light up a room.
    
He says Lentz was the life of the party, always making people laugh and keeping everyone's energy high. And he says he never saw Law drink alcohol but Law would still show up to parties because he loved being around his friends.
    
He says both were huge fans of mountain biking.
