    The third adventure of our season takes us to my home town of Sun Valley, Idaho. I moved away at the age of fourteen and have not returned for a single winter until this season. A lot has changed in those nine years, but a lot has stayed the same. In its hay day, Sun Valley was a revolutionary place, something monumental seemed to happen daily - the K2 demo team tearing around the hill, showing everyone a new kind of skiing they had never seen before, or the worlds first known wet t-shirt contest... Something was always happening in Sun Valley. Returning to the homeland meant I had to meet up with my childhood ski buddy, Ross Falcone. Ross and I spent endless days growing up together, skiing the mountain, so it was only fitting that we joined forces again. We had the time of our lives, from start to finish, and it reminded why we started skiing in the first place. We wanted to capture the essence of Sun Valley, but didn't exactly know how untill it dawned on us, ski bumps, and ski them the way they should be skied. " I haven't seen anyone ski bumps like that since 78', it's great to see... " remarked a random ski patroller. We had a fantastic time making this one, hope you all enjoy! Thanks so much to Sun Valley, Ross Falcone, and Jake Strassman for another amazing video.

    • Jake Hickman - 1 Year Later

      The above video highlights the one year redemption of a High Fives Foundation Winter Empowerment Fund athlete. As a 16 year-old, Tahoe Vista, CA native Jake Hickman was well on his way to realizing his dream of qualifying for the U.S. Freestyle Development Group in the sport of mogul skiing. On December 22, 2011 the talented skier crashed while competing at a U.S. Freestyle Ski Team - Selection Competition in Steamboat Springs, CO. The reigning J2 National Champion caught the edge of his ski before one of the jumps in the course. The crash resulted in a spiral compression fracture of Jake's T8 vertebrae with an incomplete paralysis of the spinal cord. At first uncertain of his ability to even walk again, Jake powered through a strenuous regimen of physical therapy to return to the sport he loves. One year later he returned to the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team - Selection Competition at Copper Mountain, CO and placed 24th with a score of 74.23. This in itself is a testament to the hard work that Jake has put in. "It is interesting to think back on the last year of my life. Through this injury, I have learned a great deal about myself, have become a better person and realized the value of positivity in all aspects of life. The High Fives Foundation has helped me with my recovery by being an amazing positive support group, financially and personally. My complete recovery wouldn't have been possible without them and their generosity, friendship and support." - Jake Hickman The High Fives Foundation's Winter Empowerment Fund provided Jake with rehabilitative healing therapies such as Physical Therapy with Scott Williams (P.T.) of Synergy Therapeutics, Acupuncture with Tyler Lapkin (L.Ac), Massage Therapy with Karen Stubbs (L.M.T.) and one on one training with Chris Cloyd (Fitness Director - Performance Training Center by Julia Mancuso). These therapies along with time spent in the gym, with his TRX Suspension Training System and on the trails would not be possible without the generosity of 82 (and counting) donors that have directly contributed to this up and coming ski star. The Winter Empowerment Fund allocates donated funds to athletes that have applied for and been approved by the Board of Directors - Grant Selection Committee for a specific grant to assist in recovery from a life altering injury.
