Really thankful to report Spanish big mountain skier Aymar Navarro is recovering and in good spirits after this brutal crash suffered over the weekend at final stop of the Freeride World Tour in Switzerland. Aymar was on track for podium level run down the Bec des Rosses at Verbier Xtreme when lost control after a high speed triple cliff drop section and pinged off a rock. His unconscious body continued to rag doll down the steep face before coming to rest. Rescuers were quickly on scene and he was taken to an onsite medical facility. All told Aymar got knocked out, fractured his shoulder in two places, fractured a bone in his right hand and had traumas throughout his body. Get well soon buddy.
I’m fine 🐗💪🏼 Thank you so much for all the messages of support…
Difficult day yesterday… A hard fall and in the final of the @freerideworldtour Xtreme Verbier World Championship… after making a triple in the upper area of the mountain in the reception of the last jump I lost control of the ski and went rolling until I hit some rocks where I lost consciousness for a minute … thanks to the quick action, assistance and professionalism of the rescue team and all the facilities that @freerideworldtour has subsequently provided me with, I am now at the hotel resting.
Now it’s time to relax and recover as soon as possible.
-I have: Shoulder fracture in two places, fracture of the metacarpals of the right hand and different traumas in different parts of the body…. That said, nothing that doesn’t heal with a little time and patience 💪🏼
One last thing I can tell you is that I will be back and if possible stronger.
