Matt Clark was snowboarding at Squaw Valley in January 2016 when he came up short on the fingers cliff band. The mistake caused Matt to land directly on his back on the rocks, propelling to the bottom of the cliff, 40 feet from where he started. Matt was unable to move his lower extremities upon impact, and was immediately airlifted to Renown Medical Center where he underwent surgery for his damaged spinal cord.
