Para-Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist, Josh is a role model for many. His passion, drive, and enthusiasm for snow sports in Canada are a true inspiration.SilverStar has been home to Josh from the start of his Paralympic career and are proud to have him representing and inspiring the next generation of SilverStar shredders.
"At the age of 23, a tragic accident on skis left me paralysed from the waist down. Rather than wallow in pity, I chose to move forward and return to the mountains, a place that brings me peace and gives me hope. It has been 13 years since my accident -- I have had the great fortune to dedicate my life to the sport that I love, represent Canada at two Paralympic Games and was also named the flag bearer for Canada at the closing ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. My time in the mountains has exposed me to my true nature, which is a return to joy.
SilverStar has been home for the duration of my Paralympic career, my number one supporter and the backbone to this dream I call life. The next chapter of my story is the most exciting - being home after years on the road and being able to share my passion for the sport with my wife and our kids." - Josh Dueck
