An update has been released surrounding Bryce Newcomb, the pro-skier who was seriously injured last month when a cornice collapsed under him just outside Jackson Hole, WY.

This weekend, Newcomb was moved from the ICU in Idaho Falls to a Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) facility in Boise, where he will remain in care for the foreseeable future. Newcomb’s family chose Boise for its state of the art care facility in the hopes that it will aid in his recovery.

“In with the move Bryce still long ways to go, but we all have the highest hopes for recovery,” Atomic Photo.

Newcomb remains in a coma, but his status has not changed despite recent improvements. While he has shown signs indicating the potential for recovery, what happens next is still unknown. The road ahead is still long, but Bryce has an incredible community supporting him.

We wish Bryce, a good friend of SnowBrains co-founder and fellow professional skier Miles Clark, all the best for a speedy recovery.

A GoFundMe page to ‘Bring Bryce Back’, set up by friends and family, is still up and running for those still wishing to donate to his campaign.
