The High Fives Foundation crew got to spend the morning at Squaw Valley USA with budding young professional, avid adventurist & #HighFivesAthlete Grant Korgan. This winter, with the help of the High Fives Foundation’s Winter Empowerment Fun, Grant received a monoski. Grant’s technique on a monoski is very impressive. He moves effortlessly but in reality is engaging every mussel to get that perfect S turn.

After a snowmobile accident, Grant was told he would never walk again. Now, with his wife by his side, he proves what love and determination can accomplish. Thanks for joining the High Fives Crew for a great ski day Grant!
