Parkite Colby Stevenson featured in ESPN doc as Winter X Games kicks off

The winter X Games kicks off Friday at Aspen Snowmass, and in the lead up to the event a Park City athlete got a special spotlight.

Freeskier Colby Stevenson, winner of two gold medals at X Games 2020 as well as the Best in Snow award, was the subject of a short ESPN documentary, titled “Being Colby Stevenson.” The documentary gives an overview of Stevenson’s journey to the top of the sport, including the devastating car crash in 2016 that many thought would end his career, if not his life.

Stevenson suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident, and doctors weren’t sure if he would ever walk again. Yet just a few years later, Stevenson stood atop the podium.

This year, Stevenson will try to repeat the feat and bring some more gold back to Park City.

The 2021 Winter X Games can be viewed on ESPN. A full schedule can be found here.
