Bryce Newcomb‘s road to recovery is taking a detour as the pro skier who fell nearly 1,000’ as the result of a cornice collapse in the Jackson Hole backcountry will get to move from Idaho Falls to a longer term care facility in Boise reports KPVI 6 News.
The fact that medical personnel will be allowed to transport Newcomb from hospital to hospital bodes well for the recovery process. Although he remains unconscious, Newcomb is breathing on his own accord and doctors are closely monitoring his brain injury while waiting for him to show some signs of regained consciousness.
If you have been to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort or on our website you have seen countless photos of @bryce.nexcomb3. He was one of my main photo partner for years. He was always willing to meet for an early tram, one of the hardest working skiers in the industry and all-around great guy. . On March 27th Bryce took a fall in the Jackson Hole backcounty when a cornice broke under him. Bryce suffered a severe head injury and was air lifted to a nearby hospital. He is currently in the ICU and remains in stable yet critical condition. Tonight we raise a glass at the Elks Club from 6-11 for a fundraiser to support his recovery. #haveabryceday
