On March 27th, pro skier Bryce Newcomb triggered a cornice collapse on Cody Peak beyond the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort boundary and fell nearly 1,000 feet. The fall landed Newcomb in the ICU and he has since been suffering from a brain injury ever since.
At first Newcomb was hooked up to a respirator but has since been able to breathe on his own reports the Jackson Hole News and Guide. While still mostly unresponsive, Newcomb is exhibiting small, physical movements.
Before doctors can get a good idea of what the recovery will be like, they need to transport Bryce to a facility that can better accommodate his needs as he progresses.

Needless to say such transportation and the incoming medical bills are a lot for any family to handle. In order to alleviate that burden, Tristan “Teton” Brown set up a GoFundMe page to help out Bryce and his family as they navigate this extremely complicated situation.
