Mikaela Shiffrin suffered from one of the worst crashes of her career while skiing downhill on the slopes of Cortina d’Ampezzo on January 26. Due to the heavy impact of the crash, she had to be airlifted immediately to a nearby hospital for a primary medical examination.

Months later, after undergoing rehab, she returned to the crash site once again and took to Instagram to reveal her thoughts.

"A day for the soul. What a funny thing to return to the scene of the crash, and feel totally at peace while freeskiing right past it. We live, we crash, we learn, we grow, and hopefully don’t allow fear to dictate how we experience the things we love to do. Let it be no more and no less than what it really is-a part of the process," she said.
