A seemingly innocuous day of sledding quickly turned serious when Big Sky youngster Elijah Brauer suffered a brain injury after hitting a tree. He was flown to Salt Lake for treatment, and is now back to his regular antics, but his parents want to spread the word that helmets really can save lives.

Helmets save lives

Elijah (Eli) Brauer just rode the tram and skied Liberty Bowl with his dad, Jeff. It’s an amazing feat for any seven-year-old. What makes it even more remarkable is that just three months ago young Eli was collapsed by a tree, virtually immobile and bleeding from his nostrils.
