Josh Dueck was an aspiring skier and coach until a ski accident in 2004 changed his life for good. After coming to the realisation that he would never walk again, Josh made a conscious decision to make the best of a terrible situation.
Within one year he was back on snow doing what he loved, and shortly after, his determination took him to the top of the podium in the sport of sit-skiing. Despite his success in the world of competitive skiing, he wasn't satisfied as a skier. Josh's dream is to tackle the backcountry, and the steepest and wildest mountains in the world.
In The Freedom Chair, it's a dream fulfilled.
