Whistler Mountain Ski Club (WMSC) alum Broderick Thompson sustained a head injury after falling during a training run on Dec. 1 in Beaver Creek, Colo.
Alpine Canada announced in a statement that the 29-year-old was airlifted to Denver Health Centre, where he is alert, in stable condition, and showing steady improvement.
"Obviously we're all really sad that he got injured there, but I hear he's stable and he's doing better and he's been improving the past couple of days," said fellow national team skier Britt Richardson in an interview with CBC.
"We hope to see that trend continue and yeah, we're just sending him all positive vibes and love to him."
With 78 World Cup starts under his belt, Thompson is a mainstay of the Canadian speed program alongside fellow WMSC athletes Jack Crawford, Cameron Alexander, Brodie Seger, Kyle Alexander and Riley Seger. He is the younger brother of reigning Olympic ski cross silver medallist Marielle Thompson.
