Kyle has been a lifelong skier, but only recently started getting more comfortable hitting jumps. While skiing at Squaw Valley on the morning of April 11, 2019, he underestimated the size of a jump and ended up hitting one well outside of skill level. He got way too much air, overshot the landing, and fell 20-30ft onto hard spring snow, resulting in several injuries: a fractured right heel, a broken left femur, burst fractures of his L5 and L3 vertebrae, compression fractures of his L2 and L1 vertebrae, three fractured ribs, a fractured sternum, and a broken left thumb. The spinal damage resulted in nerve damage to his left leg, but it has been diagnosed as temporary.
