During the ABC window on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, adaptive skier Trevor Kennison will become the first adaptive athlete to hit the Big Air jump at X Games. Originally from Keene, New Hampshire, Kennison went viral as at the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s competition in 2019 when he won Rider’s Choice as the only adaptive athlete invited. Paralyzed in a snowboarding accident at 22 years old, Kennison began adaptive skiing in 2015 with support from the High Fives Foundation. He is now training for the 2022 Winter Paralympics in Beijing and began hitting the backcountry on his sit ski in early 2020. A documentary film about Trevor’s life, Full Circle, is slated for release in fall 2022.
