In early 2012, Simon Dumont blew out his knee at X Games Tignes. After eight long months of recovery and rehab, Dumont, an eight-time X Games medalist, has finally returned to the slopes.
Network A shadowed Dumont on his return in the series 'Drop In,' starting with his first day on the mountain in Keystone, Colorado, with the U.S. Ski Team.
On day five, Dumont suffers a minor setback as his ski falls off during an aerial on a 22-foot superpipe. He lands hard on his feet and then crashes backward.
But the 26-year-old freeskier shakes off the fall and is soon attempting his signature move, the switch double cork. Will he be ready in time for X Games Aspen in two weeks?
