Thank you for your kind words #HighFivesAthlete Meredith Koch & congratulations on 4 tracking!

“Just wanted to drop you a line and say THANK YOU to High Fives. The outriggers and Full Tilt boots are awesome and the crew at Vermont Adaptive have been phenomenal. This video was taken this past Sunday at the Ski with Kelly Brush event. Day 5 of lessons this season! That day was the first since I got hurt where I skied and enjoyed it and felt a bit like my old self out there. Being able to fall in love all over again with skiing has been phenomenal and such a blessing. So thank you to High Fives for helping me start the process of becoming a good skier again.

I fly out tomorrow to Salt Lake City to ski for a week, so I sadly won’t be at the Fat Ski A Thon at Sugarbush. But if you’re in the SLC area at any point next week, drop me a line, and let’s tear up some greens & maybe a blue four track style!” – #HighFivesAthlete Meredith Koch

The day before Meredith’s 25th birthday she was helping friends move an upright piano out of the back of a pick-up truck. As it was coming out of the truck, it tipped over and landed on her back. The impact fractured Meredith’s sternum and shattered her L1 vertebrae. After an 8-hour surgery to put Meredith’s spine back together again, she woke up in the Surgical ICU paralyzed from the waist down.
