MATT LEONARD | SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

During a warm up run on Alpine Meadows under the Summit Chair, Matt caught an edge on some soft snow sending him directly into a patch of ice. Matt hit an ice mogul causing one of his skis to come off, which sent him into the tower 9 pole of the Summit Chair. Matt was immediately flown to Renown Medical Center where he found that he had compressed his spine 90%, shattered his T5/T6 vertebra leaving him paralyzed from the chest down.
