Josh Dueck's life as a skier, since he became a paraplegic during a crash in 2004, has been nothing short of inspirational.
Using a Sit-ski, he stayed on the slopes and became a top-level competitive skier, while also pioneering backcountry skiing on a device designed more for groomed runs in close proximity to chair lifts.
Last Friday, he realized a goal he had harbored since that fateful day eight years ago: Dueck performed what's believed to be the first-ever back flip on a Sit-ski.
The Solomon Freeski video is a quality production from start to finish, but those wanting only to see the trick can fast-forward to the 2-minute mark.
Dueck has named his sit-ski the Freedom Chair, and he stars in a documentary with the same title.
