Caleb Moore died in 2013 following a snowmobile accident at the X Games. His brother, Colten, and father, Wade, have not appeared together on camera reflecting on the incident, until now. 

Good Morning Vail host Tricia Swenson recently 

sat down for an interview with X Games gold medalist snowmobiler Colten Moore and his father, Wade Moore, about the death of Colten's brother, Caleb, following his brother's snowmobile backflip gone wrong at the X Games.

Colten Moore said the Vail interview was the first time his father has done a television appearance with him talking about Caleb since the accident, which occurred during the X Games snowmobile freestyle event in 2013. 

"He might have been a little nervous but I think he's a natural!" Colten said of his father's q&a session with the easy-to-talk-to Swenson.
