Tony became a C4-C5 quadriplegic as the result of the spinal cord injury he suffered in the water at the beach. Tony’s tenacious surf/skate/ski DNA has pushed him through all sorts of obstacles and has to lead him into an endlessly surprising and beautiful life. Tony was bitten hard by the bi-ski bug when he hooked up with the folks over at Disabled Sports USA – Far West at Alpine Meadows Resort and the stoke hasn’t subsided. With assistance from the Empowerment Fund, Tony has really push things forward in his skiing.

“It’s all happening right now, embrace it with a committed fearlessness.“
