We got some terrible news via social media late this afternoon. Sarah J. Burke, 29 of Squamish B.C. a professional skier was seriously injured in a demo run at a sponsor event in Park City and airlifted with a respirator to Salt Lake City.
Sarah is a pro's pro...and a very sweet young lady and a pioneer of her sport... skiing super pipe. She's a 4-Time X-Games Gold Medalist...the first Woman to go REALLY BIG. She's a sponsor's dream... a beautiful sexy blue eyed blonde with a thousand watt smile...who is super-nice to everyone. She's Canadian..it's hard not to love her.
Sarah Burke has graced the digi of AspenSpin on numerous occasions.
Details are sketchy, but we're under the impression that it's a head injury. "Very Serious" according to the Vancouver Sun.
Sarah Burke is a BIG, BRIGHT SHINING STAR and we are praying for her full recovery.
