JOSH DUECK

From humble beginnings in a small mountain town to casually sitting on top of every major podium, from the Paralympics to the X Games, Dueck’s story of triumph through tragedy is anything but conventional.  Inspired by a generation of mountain enthusiasts before him, it became clear to Josh from an early age that he would dedicate his life to the sport he loved, freestyle skiing.  After a tragic accident on skis in 2004 Josh was given a choice; wallow in misery or shift his perception of how one can move through the mountains.
