Rod Alavi

Rod Alavi | Alamo, CA

Rod Alavi and his family have always been avid skiers in Northern California Sierra Mountain Range. On February 22, 2018, Rod suffered a spinal cord injury on the backside of Northstar Resort during a snowy day. His injury was a C5 agency incomplete spinal cord injury, and during his rehab at Craig Hospital he regained some mobility in his legs, hands and movement including standing and walking with a walker.

Rod’s goal is to return to the mountains and lakes of Tahoe with my family – One of his favorite past times.
