Kailyn was on her second warm-up lap for USASA nationals at Copper mountain slopestyle event, when she over-rotated her standard backflip and landed deep down the transition. Kailyn landed on her neck and back and instantly lost feeling in her lower extremities. She immediately told the jump marshal and ski patrol responding that she broke her neck. When Kailyn arrived at the trauma center she and her family were told that she had a complete C7 spinal cord injury.

Kailyn’s goal is to recover as much as is medically possible and get back to doing the things she loves. Eventually, she would like to become a safety advocate in the action-sports community.
