TIM BURR | GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO

Tim sustained a spinal cord injury at the C5 level while skiing the crested butte backcountry with a friend. There was a small drop that Tim scouted and hit, causing him to land a little bit forward and crash. Tim’s friend acted quickly to get his face out of the snow so he didn’t suffocate, and then called rescue. Once he arrived at the hospital, Tim received the news that he was paralyzed from the shoulders down.

Tim’s ultimate goal, no matter the time and effort that it takes, is to get back to the sports that he loves.
