While competing at the Xtreme Verbier stop on the Freeride World Tour last Saturday, freeskier Aymar Navarro took a crash.
A big one.
The Spanish freeskier was hitting a triple cliff during the event when he lost control of his ski on the landing of the third cliff and tumbled over rocks. He briefly lost concisousness before being taken off the mountain by rescue teams. He ended up breaking his shoulder in two spots, his hand, and bruising various parts of his body. But he is alive and well.
Navarro shared an update regarding his recovery in an Instagram post where he wrote (translated from Spanish):
‘I’m alright. 🐗💪🏼 Thank you very much for all the messages of support… 🥰 Difficult day yesterday… A strong fall and in the final of the World cup of the @freerideworldtour Xtreme de Verbier… after doing a triple in the upper area of the mountain at the landing of the last jump I lost control of my ski and rolled out 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 have subsequently put me @freerideworldtour I am already in the hotel resting. Now it’s time to relax and recover as soon as possible. -I have: a shoulder fracture in spots, a fracture of the metacarpals of the right hand, and different minor traumas on different parts of my body… That said, nothing can’t be cured with a little time and patience 💪🏼 One last thing I can tell you is that I will return and if possible, stronger 💪🏼”
Get well soon, Aymar.
