QUADRILYZED is the story of Jason’s new version of life as an athlete, as a photographer, and as a father. On one of the best powder days of 2015, Jason Abraham, the beloved Tahoe skier and photographer was skiing at Squaw Valley capturing photos of a skilled crew in notorious steeps.

After the session, he decided he’d take a free ski run down Main Chute in the Palisades. After dropping into the line he’d scored hundreds of times, Jason picked up speed and came out of the run faster than anticipated. He caught an edge and was flung on his back. The impact resulted in a spinal cord injury causing paralysis from the shoulders down and making him a part of the same population he’d helped photograph and promote for years.
