Isaac Freeland’s Road to Recovery x Freeski Arnica

#1 – Introduction In the US there are roughly 8.6 million sports-related injuries each year (US Department of Health) Odds are you’ve probably had an injury.

It was early January and we were meeting a group of guys at Golden Alpine Holidays at 9:30 in order to get a heli bump up to the Sunrise hut.

Then another text followed “You realize there was an hour time change from Revi”. Jonnie and I panicked, “We missed the heli?” Jonnie said. […]
