Halfpipe Skiers Acknowledge Dangers of Sport
But Still Hit Superpipe Despite Burkes Injury

PARK CITY, Utah  The afternoon sun has cast a giant shadow across one wall 
of the imposing 22-foot superpipe at Park City Mountain Resort.

.

On the other, members of the French national team are illuminated as they 
catch big air, twisting and spinning as they prepare for another run at 
the Winter X Games later this month.

.

Though they just arrived at this Utah mountain town, they know this is the 
pipe where Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke, in critical condition at 
a nearby hospital, was injured just days ago. And it is the same pipe 
where champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce suffered a traumatic brain injury 
two years ago.

.

Although the athletes training Thursday said they respect the sports 
dangers, theyll continue doing what they do.

.

The danger is part of the sport, so you have to accept that, said Benoit 
Valentin, 19, an alternate at the upcoming X Games.

.

The French currently have some of the best halfpipe skiers in the world, 
with Kevin Rolland and Thomas Krief, and 2009 Winter X Games Champion 
Xavier Bertoni.

.

We come here because its the best place to train at this time of the 
year, French coach Greg Guenet said.

.

And they come because not only do they want to do well at the X Games but 
at the 2014 Olympics, where the sport will be included for the first time.

Our action sports world is again in shock. One of freestyle skiing's top 
women, Sarah Burke, remains in critical condition after a fall while 
training in Park City a few days ago. As pro snowboarders, skiers, etc., 
we all know that what we do is risky. But when accidents produce results 
like this we're left praying and asking ourselves questions.

.

Is this worth it? Why did this happen? What are we doing?

Sarah Burke is being treated at the Neuro Critical Care Unit at University 
of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City after suffering a traumatic brain 
injury and intracranial hemmorrhage Tuesday while training in the halfpipe 
at Park City. "Sarah remains in critical condition in the Neuro Critical 
Care Unit," said Safdar Ansari, the neurointensivist leading a 
multidisciplinary team coordinating Burke's care, in a statement issued on 
Friday.

.

"With traumatic brain injury, our care is focused on addressing the 
primary injury and preventing secondary brain damage, as well as managing 
other injuries sustained at the time of the accident; all of which 
requires close monitoring and intensive care. At this moment, Sarah needs 
more time before any prognosis can be determined."

Onetime Olympic hopeful Kevin Pearce 'must learn to walk again'

Snowboarder Kevin Pearce sustained a massive head injury while training 
Dec. 31 in Park City, Utah. While working on the double cork, Pearce 
slammed face-first into an icy 22-foot wall of a halfpipe. Pearce was 
admitted to a Salt Lake City hospital in critical condition and had 
surgery. He stayed there until this month, when he was transferred to a 
Colorado facility that specializes in rehabilitating brain and spinal cord 
injuries.

.

Monday night, "NBC Nightly News" spoke with Pearce's family for the first 
time since his injury. Though his family is encouraged, doctor's reports 
reveal that Pearce has suffered memory loss and impaired vision, and he 
will have to learn how to walk again.

Freestyle Star Sustains Serious Head Injury in Training

The potential danger presented by the high walls and slick sides of 
supersize halfpipes has come to the fore again, two years after the 
champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce sustained a traumatic head injury.

.

The Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke, a four-time X Games champion and 
2014 Olympic favorite, was seriously injured Tuesday in the 22-foot 
halfpipe in Park City, Utah, the same place where Pearce was injured on 
Dec. 31, 2009. Like Pearce, she hit her head while attempting to land a 
trick during training and was airlifted to University Hospital in Salt 
Lake City.

.

Sarah sustained serious injuries and remains intubated and sedated in 
critical condition, the hospital neurointensivist Safdar Ansari said in a 
statement.

.

Burke, a 29-year-old from Ontario who lives in Squamish, British Columbia, 
successfully lobbied to add halfpipe skiing to the 2014 Olympic program in 
Sochi, Russia. She was expected to defend her latest X Games gold medal 
this month in Aspen, Colo.

.

Sarah is a very strong young woman, and she will most certainly fight to 
recover, her husband, Rory Bushfield, said in a statement.
