After a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 2001 left him a paraplegic, professional snowboarder Jeremy McGhee made one of several promises to himself: I will not sit idly by!
And he hasn’t. One year after his accident, McGhee was swimming again. Surfing came soon after, as did competing in swimming marathons, and a return to the mountains he loved to ski.
This past July, McGhee shared the hardships he faced before tackling one of his most ambitious challenges yet: climbing Bloody Couloir, a dangerous ski descent in the Eastern Sierras.
