MOVIE MONDAY | #HighFivesAthlete GEORGIANA BURNSIDE Climbs indoors

“Try to surround yourself with people who will be there when it rains, not just when it shines.” – #HighFivesAthlete Georgiana Burnside

While skiing a double black diamond at Snowmass last Spring, Georgiana hit a rogue patch of ice misdirecting her off a large drop on the side of the trail. After dropping 50 feet or so,Georgiana landed on her back and slid to a stop. That is where she discovered that she couldn’t move her legs.

Georgiana was flown directly to Craig Hospital where she underwent surgery to repair her spine. Following surgery, she was told that she had suffered a T12/L1 spinal cord injury.
