When Andy Wirth crash landed into a vineyard during a skydiving accident, his arm was severed. As he knelt there bleeding, he stayed conscious by singing “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam.
It was at this moment – strangely at peace with death – that Andy, the CEO of Squaw Valley ski resort, started living again. Through a serious of miraculous surgeries, doctors were able to re-attach his arm. He’ll always have a wounded wing, but instead of focusing on his limits, Andy has embraced the many things he can do, rather than the few he can’t.
