Freeskier Jamie Crane-Mauzy suffered a serious injury when attempting a double flat at the World Skiing Invitational in Whistler BC. She was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital, where she remains in critical condition in a medically induced coma, under the close surveillance of physicians.
Jamie’s family released a statement, thanking her friends and fans from the snow sports community and beyond for the outpouring of well wishes and encouraging positive reinforcement for Jamie.
“I can tell she feels everyone’s love, support and energy,” explains Jamie’s sister and fellow freeskier, Jeanee Crane-Mauzy.
In 2013 Jamie became the first female freeskier to land a double backflip during the Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado. She repeated the feat again at the 2013 North Face Park & Pipe Open.
Positive vibes and energy can be shared to her Facebook page. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jamie's family and friends along with the greater snowsports community.
