Justin suffered multiple injuries following a crash at Squaw Valley in April 2016. He was skiing with friends when he found himself off balance when he hit a jump, causing him to crash into a tree well in the Headwall region of Squaw. Following a ski patrol extraction, Justin was flown to Renown Medical Center where he was told that he had suffered fractures of his T4/5 vertebrae, a punctured and collapsed lung and a fractured sternum. Justin was paralyzed from the chest down.
