Scotty Meyer, Mono Skier X

Scotty Meyer, a member of the Copper Mountain Freeride Team, has been skiing for only five seasons, yet he's already competed in three Winter X Games and qualified for four of the five World Cup Paralympic racing disciplines. The 2010 X Course may be intimidating, but to Meyer, a guy who spent two full years in the hospital and underwent nearly 100 surgeries, all things are relative. (Dave Lehl/ESPN Action Sports)
