Colby Stevenson competing in the 2020 Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix freeski slopestyle finals at Mammoth Mountain, Calif. (U.S. Ski & Snowboard)

The world was watching as U.S. Freeski Pro Team member Colby Stevenson stormed out of nowhere in 2020 to win two gold medals at X Games Aspen, plus the coveted Best In Snow award as a rookie in X Games competition. What many don't know is that Stevenson suffered a traumatic brain injury following a car accident in 2016. Doctors didn’t know if he would walk again, let alone ski. However, Stevenson’s recovery was mighty, with the contest results to prove it. Today, Stevenson is a household name in elite-level freeski competition, but there’s more to Colby Stevenson than just gold medals and a comeback story.
