Forrest is a C6/C7 incomplete quadriplegic. He was injured while free skiing at Panorama Mountain Resort in Invermere British Columbia. It was a warm day with heavy snowfall at the top of the mountain, and rain at the bottom of the mountain. Forrest was headed down the mountain to go to his son’s birthday party; it was about 1 in the afternoon. As he was heading down he hit a soft, isothermic, rain-affected patch of snow. His skis stopped dead, he double ejected from his bindings and landed on his head and neck. It happened so fast that he could not even react. Next thing he knew, he was laying on his back not able to move his legs or arms.
