Alex Gavic is a powder machine. After a debilitating injury that had him heli’d out of the backcountry at the beginning of the year, he still managed to have an awesome season. Alex shattered his sacrum and had a compression fracture in his first lumbar vertebrae. This edit fully documents his accident, emergency heli trip, and the rest of Alex’s powdery season. His message to all the riders out there with a setback or injury is awesome, it takes some time to heal but that doesn’t stop you from doing what you love.
