Even the most competitive skiers see Montana’s Big Couloir as among the most challenging runs in the country. But for Jacob Smith, who at 15 is the only blind competitive free rider in the country, it was an almost inconceivable feat. After undergoing four major surgeries for a brain tumor starting when he was just 8 years old, Jacob did the legendary run three years ago. Sharyn Alfonsi profiles Smith, who competes for the Big Sky freeride team today, and skis by tapping into his other senses and his memory of the mountain before he went blind.
Sarah Koch is the producer.
