It was a beautiful sunny day at Breckenridge ski resort. Tyler was practicing going off some of the larger jumps in the terrain park. As his day was starting to wrap up, he was feeling pretty confident with his abilities, so he decided to attempt a slightly bigger jump. As he began his accent in the air he started to get flat as if he was laying down. It was at that moment he knew that things were not going to end well. Tyler landed flat on his back right on the apex of the knuckle shattering his T8 vertebrae. He also broke a rib and his sternum.
