High Fives Foundation ski coach, Vic DeMaio, thought his 2013/14 season was over when he shattered his patella in seven pieces. He stated that, “All the doctors had told me my season was over and at first, although I was devastated my season had been cut short, I was content to look forward to working my ass of and coming back strong next season”.

After about 3 months, his physical therapist said he could get back on the slopes due to his great mobility and muscle growth, so that is exactly what he did! He worked his butt off every single day in PT and pushed himself harder than he had ever before to achieve his goal of getting back on skis and doing what he loves. From shattered patella to skiing 3 months later, unbelievable. Watch below.
