Retired Marine Jacob Schick returns to the mountains with the help of the High Fives Foundation, Disabled Sports USA Far West and his trainer Dave Vobora who is the founder of the Adaptive Training Foundation and a retired NFL linebacker.

Jake’s return to skiing comes after 12 years off the snow and life altering injuries sustained during a 2004 Tour in Iraq, which resulted in the loss of his right leg and numerous other injuries.

Jake Schick has been featured in numerous documentaries and most recently played a role in Clint Eastwood’s, “American Sniper.” Which is based on the story of Schick’s close friend Chris Kyle.
