In April 2019, Kyle was skiing at Squaw Valley Resort when he suffered a burst fracture of his L-5 and L-3 vertebrae. A lifelong skier, Kyle only recently started getting more comfortable hitting jumps. He underestimated the size of a jump and ended up going off 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.
