Salomon Freeski TV Eposide 5.5: The Freedom Chair

This episode from Salomon Freeski TV is more than just a sample of powder and tricks. The episode profiles Josh Dueck, a former skier/coach who, after being paralyzed from the waist down in an unfortunate skiing accident, still finds freedom shredding without the use of his legs.

Dueck has committed himself to being one of the best sit-skiers in the world, and he has found success as a sit-skiing world cup champion, silver medalist at the 2010 Paraplegic Olympic Winter Games in Whistler and winner of the 2011 Monoskier X and the Winter X Games.

His story is one of the most inspiring in the world of skiing, and he continues to impress us in this vid as he ventures into the backcountry to continue his aspirations of being a freeskier.
